Higher doses and longer periods of usage result in greater systemic levels. Also use of the drug on more than 10% of the body surface has shown to increase drowsiness. In order to prevent drowsiness, it is essential to reduce the area of the body treated, reduce the number of times the cream is applied or if required stop treatment with this cream.
