Protopic at a glance

Protopic® is a non-steroid ointment recommended for the treatment of moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (AD) in patients who are not responsive to or are intolerant of topical corticosteroids (TCS). It comes in two strengths:
• 0.1%: For adults and adolescents ≥ 16 years
• 0.03%: For adults, adolescents and children ≥ 2 years1

Protopic is designed for moderate to severe AD. Protopic both targets the inflammation and supports the repair of the defective skin barrier present within AD
