Almetamin consists of Betamethasone, Dexchlorpheniramine Maleate.
Betamethasone - A glucocorticoid given orally, parenterally, by local injection, by inhalation, or applied topically in the management of various disorders in which corticosteroids are indicated. Its lack of mineralocorticoid properties makes Almetamin (Betamethasone) particularly suitable for treating cerebral edema and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p724)
Indication: Topical use (cream, lotion and ointment): for relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatosesTopical use (foam): relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses of the scalpSystemic use: for the treatment of edocrine disorders, rheumatic disorders, collagen diseases, dermatological diseases, allergic states, ophthalmic diseases, respiratory diseases, hematologic disorders, neoplastic diseases, edematous states, gastrointestinal diseases, tuberculous meningitis and trichinosis.
Almetamin (Betamethasone) and its derivatives, Almetamin (Betamethasone) sodium phosphate and Almetamin (Betamethasone) acetate, are synthetic glucocorticoids. Used for its antiinflammatory or immunosuppressive properties, Almetamin (Betamethasone) is combined with a mineralocorticoid to manage adrenal insufficiency and is used in the form of Almetamin (Betamethasone) benzoate, Almetamin (Betamethasone) dipropionate, or Almetamin (Betamethasone) valerate for the treatment of inflammation due to corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. Almetamin (Betamethasone) and clotrimazole are used together to treat cutaneous tinea infections.
Dexchlorpheniramine Maleate - Dexchlorpheniramine is an antihistamine used to relieve symptoms of allergy, hay fever, and the common cold. These symptoms include rash, watery eyes, itchy eyes/nose/throat/ skin, cough, runny nose, and sneezing. This medication works by blocking a certain natural substance (histamine) that your body makes during an allergic reaction. By blocking another natural substance made by your body (acetylcholine), it helps dry up some body fluids to relieve symptoms such as watery eyes and runny nose. Cough-and-cold products have not been shown to be safe or effective in children younger than 6 years. Therefore, do not use this product to treat cold symptoms in children younger than 6 years unless specifically directed by the doctor. Some products (such as long-acting tablets/capsules) are not recommended for use in children younger than 12 years. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details about using your product safely. These products do not cure or shorten the length of the common cold and may cause serious side effects. To decrease the risk for serious side effects, carefully follow all dosage directions. Do not use this product to make a child sleepy. Do not give other cough-and-cold medication that might contain the same or similar ingredients (see also Drug Interactions section). Ask the doctor or pharmacist about other ways to relieve cough and cold symptoms (such as drinking enough fluids, using a humidifier or saline nose drops/spray).
