What is the dosage for mometasone?
To use mometasone cream or ointment, a thin film should be applied to the affected skin once daily. To apply the lotion, a few drops should be place on the affected areas once daily and massaged lightly until it disappears.
Which drugs or supplements interact with mometasone?
The combination of mometasone and anthralin topicals (used to treat psoriasis) should not be used since concomitant use may increase the symptoms of psoriasis. It is therefore advisable to discontinue topical steroids one week before starting anthralin.
