Can I use other medicines with ATIKET CREAM for my skin condition?
Before using ATIKET CREAM, inform your doctor if you are taking, have taken, or might take any other medicine, including prescription, over the counter or any herbal medicine. If you have been regularly using a lotion or cream, containing a steroid (Ex. betamethasone or hydrocortisone) for your skin condition, you should wait for two weeks before starting treatment with ATIKET CREAM. This will stop your condition flaring up while ATIKET CREAM starts to work. If you have any queries about stopping your steroid lotion or cream, consult your doctor.
