Additionally, Flo-Pred is indicated for the control of severe or incapacitating allergic conditions such as atopic dermatitis, and seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis which are intractable to adequate trials of conventional treatment.
 
Important Safety Information
Flo-Pred is contraindicated in patients with systemic fungal infections. Administration of live or live, attenuated vaccines is contraindicated in patients receiving immunosuppressive doses of corticosteroids. Killed or inactivated vaccines may be administered, however, the response to such vaccines cannot be predicted. Immunization procedures may be undertaken in patients who are receiving corticosteroids as replacement therapy, e.g., for Addison’s disease. Flo-Pred may cause mood swings. Adverse effects of Flo-Pred include the following: endocrine (including development of Cushingoid state, increased requirements for insulin or oral hypoglycemic agents in diabetic patients, manifestations of latent diabetes mellitus); fluid and electrolyte disturbances (including fluid retention, hypertension); gastrointestinal (including peptic ulcer with possible perforation and hemorrhage); increased appetite; and weight gain. Dosage of Flo-Pred should be individualized according to the severity of the disease and the response of the patient. For pediatric patients, the recommended dosage should be governed by the same considerations rather than strict adherence to the ratio indicated by age or body weight. Flo-Pred contains 15 mg of prednisolone (as 16.7 mg of prednisolone acetate) in each
5 mL. Butylparaben, 0.04% is added as a preservative. It also contains carbomer 934P, disodium edetate, glycerin, masking agent, poloxamer 188, propylene glycol, purified water, sodium hydroxide, sorbitol crystalline, sucralose liquid concentrate and cherry flavor.
