Patient Information 

Patients should have detailed instruction regarding the use of Ciclopirox Topical Solution, 8% (Nail Lacquer) as a component of a comprehensive management program for onychomycosis in order to achieve maximum benefit with the use of this product.

The Patient Should Be Told To: 

  1. Use Ciclopirox Topical Solution, 8% (Nail Lacquer) as directed by a health care professional. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. Contact with skin other than skin immediately surrounding the treated nail(s) should be avoided. Ciclopirox Topical Solution, 8% (Nail Lacquer) is for external use only.
  2. Ciclopirox Topical Solution, 8% (Nail Lacquer) should be applied evenly over the entire nail plate and 5 mm of surrounding skin. If possible, Ciclopirox Topical Solution, 8% (Nail Lacquer) should be applied to the nail bed, hyponychium, and the under surface of the nail plate when it is free of the nail bed (e.g., onycholysis). Contact with the surrounding skin may produce mild, transient irritation (redness).
  3. Removal of the unattached, infected nail, as frequently as monthly, by a health care professional is needed with use of this medication. Inform a health care professional if you have diabetes or problems with numbness in your toes or fingers for consideration of the appropriate nail management program.
  4. Inform a health care professional if the area of application shows signs of increased irritation (redness, itching, burning, blistering, swelling, oozing).
  5. Up to 48 weeks of daily applications with Ciclopirox Topical Solution, 8% (Nail Lacquer) and professional removal of the unattached, infected nail, as frequently as monthly, are considered the full treatment needed to achieve a clear or almost clear nail (defined as 10% or less residual nail involvement).
  6. Six months of therapy with professional removal of the unattached, infected nail may be required before initial improvement of symptoms is noticed.
  7. A completely clear nail may not be achieved with use of this medication. In clinical studies less than 12% of patients were able to achieve either a completely clear or almost clear toenail.
  8. Do not use the medication for any disorder other than that for which it is prescribed.
  9. Do not use nail polish or other nail cosmetic products on the treated nails.
  10. Avoid use near heat or open flame, because product is flammable.
