How should I use VUSION?

VUSION Ointment is indicated for the adjunctive treatment of diaper dermatitis only when complicated by documented candidiasis (microscopic evidence of pseudohyphae and/or budding yeast), in immunocompetent pediatric patients 4 weeks and older. A positive fungal culture for is not adequate evidence of candidal infection since colonization with can result in a positive culture. The presence of candidal infection should be established by microscopic evaluation prior to initiating treatment.

VUSION should be used as part of a treatment regimen that includes measures directed at the underlying diaper dermatitis, including gentle cleansing of the diaper area and frequent diaper changes.

VUSION should not be used as a substitute for frequent diaper changes. VUSION should not be used to prevent the occurrence of diaper dermatitis, since preventative use may result in the development of drug resistance.

VUSION is not for oral, ophthalmic, or intravaginal use.

Before applying VUSION, gently cleanse the skin with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel. Avoid using any scented soaps, shampoos, or lotions on the diaper area.

Apply VUSION to the affected area at each diaper change for 7 days. Continue treatment for the full 7 days, even if there is improvement. The safety of VUSION when used for longer than 7 days is not known. Do not use VUSION for longer than 7 days. If symptoms have not improved by day 7, see your health care provider.

Gently apply a thin layer of VUSION to the diaper area with the fingertips. Do not rub VUSION into the skin as this may cause additional irritation. Thoroughly wash hands after applying VUSION.

Clinical Pharmacology

The miconazole component of VUSION is an antifungal agent [see Clinical Pharmacology ()]. The mechanism of action of white petrolatum and zinc oxide for the adjunctive treatment of diaper dermatitis is unknown.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
None

In patients receiving nonselective monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors in combination with serotoninergic agents (e.g., dexfenfluramine, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, paroxetine, sertraline, citalopram, venlafaxine) there have been reports of serious, sometimes fatal, reactions. Because phenelzine sulfate is a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor, phenelzine sulfate should not be used concomitantly with a serotoninergic agent (See ).

Administration of guanethidine to patients receiving an MAO inhibitor can produce moderate to severe hypertension due to release of catecholamines. At least two weeks should elapse between withdrawal of the MAO inhibitor and the initiation of guanethidine. (see )

If irritation occurs or if the disease worsens, discontinue use of the medication, and contact the health care provider.

The safety and efficacy of VUSION have not been evaluated in incontinent adult patients.
