Clinical Information

Clinical Pharmacology

Sodium Sulfacetamide exhibits antibacterial activity. It is believed to block bacterial growth by acting as a competitive antagonist of para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA). While absorption through intact skin has not been determined for sodium sulfacetamide, it is estimated that 1% of topically applied sulfur is absorbed. Although the exact mode of the keralytic activity of sulfur is unknown, it is reported to result from the interaction of sulfur with the cysteine content of keratinocytes. In combination with sulfacetamide, sulfur has been reported to inhibit , thereby reducing the associated inflammation.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% Sulfur 2% Cream is contraindicated foruse by patients having known hypersensitivity to sulfonamides, sulfur or any other component of this preparation. Sodium Sulfacetamide 10% Sulfur 2% Cream is not to be used by patients with kidney disease.

(See  .) Verapamil hydrochloride injection has been used concomitantly with other cardioactive drugs (especially digitalis) without evidence of serious negative drug interactions. In rare instances, including when patients with severe cardiomyopathy, congestive heart failure, or recent myocardial infarction were given beta-adrenergic blocking agents or disopyramide concomitantly with verapamil, serious adverse effects have occurred. Concomitant use of verapamil hydrochloride with β-adrenergic blockers may result in an exaggerated hypotensive response. Such an effect was observed in one study, following the concomitant administration of verapamil and prazosin. It may be necessary to decrease the dose of verapamil and/or dose of the neuromuscular blocking agent when the drugs are used concomitantly. As verapamil is highly bound to plasma proteins, it should be administered with caution to patients receiving other highly protein-bound drugs.
