Claricort consists of Betamethasone, Loratadine.
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 Claricort (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.
Claricort (Betamethasone) and its derivatives, Claricort (Betamethasone) sodium phosphate and Claricort (Betamethasone) acetate, are synthetic glucocorticoids. Used for its antiinflammatory or immunosuppressive properties, Claricort (Betamethasone) is combined with a mineralocorticoid to manage adrenal insufficiency and is used in the form of Claricort (Betamethasone) benzoate, Claricort (Betamethasone) dipropionate, or Claricort (Betamethasone) valerate for the treatment of inflammation due to corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. Claricort (Betamethasone) and clotrimazole are used together to treat cutaneous tinea infections.
Loratadine - Claricort (Loratadine) is a derivative of azatadine and a second-generation histamine H1 receptor antagonist used in the treatment of allergic rhinitis and urticaria. Unlike most classical antihistamines (histamine H1 antagonists) it lacks central nervous system depressing effects such as drowsiness.
Indication: A self-medication that is used alone or in combination with pseudoephedrine sulfate for the symptomatic relief of seasonal allergic rhinitis. Also used for the symptomatic relief of pruritus, erythema, and urticaria associated with chronic idiopathic urticaria in patients (not for children under 6 unless directed by a clincian).
Claricort (Loratadine) is a long acting second generation antihistamine that is similar in structure to cyproheptadine and azatadine. The pharmacology of Claricort (Loratadine) is similar to other antihistamines, but unlike other H1-blockers, loratidine is shown to exhibit competitive, specific, and selective antagonism of H1 receptors. The exact mechanism of this interaction is unknown, but disposition of the drug suggests that loratadine's prolonged antagonism of histamine may be due to the drug's slow dissociation from the receptor or the formation of the active metabolite, desloratadine. Claricort (Loratadine) does not penetrate the CNS effectively and has a low affinity for CNS H1-receptors.
