Dosage of Solaquin Forte
It is best if a patient uses this medication as directed on the label or prescribed by a doctor. However, the recommended dose for a patient is application of Solaquin Forte once daily. A patient should avoid its application to other parts of skin and wash hands before and after an application.
A patient should apply Solaquin Forte to clean, dry skin. Enough medication is to be applied to the affected area. Application of larger amounts of Solaquin Forte may lead to severe skin reaction like marked redness, peeling and painful irritation. It could even lead to numbness of lips and mouth or nose if unwontedly applied there.
In case of a missed dose, a patient should apply the cream as soon as he or she remembers. You can continue with your regular schedule if it is already time for your next dose of this medicine. A patient should not apply extra medicine to make up the missed dose. In case of an overdose, emergency medical help is needed.
Solaquin Forte is otherwise considered to be a safe medication and it is not likely that other drugs taken orally by patient or injected could have any effect on topically applied hydroquinone. A patient should avoid skin products such as harsh soaps, shampoos, skin cleansers, hair coloring, hair removers or other medicated products since they may adversely react with this medication leading to severe irritation. However, a patient should inform doctor if he or she is taking other prescription, over-the-counter medication, vitamins, minerals and herbal products.
