Flurandrenolide Tape Side Effects

Many people tolerate flurandrenolide tape well. However, side effects are possible and can include itching, irritation, or other skin reactions. Long-term use can lead to a different set of problems, which may include diabetes, lack of muscle, and weight gain. There are also some potentially serious reactions that should be reported to a healthcare provider right away, such as infections or glaucoma.

An Introduction to Flurandrenolide Tape Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with flurandrenolide tape (Cordran® Tape). However, not everyone who uses the medication will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with flurandrenolide tape. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
 

Side Effects of Flurandrenolide Tape to Report

Some side effects with steroids like flurandrenolide tape are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. These include but are not limited to:
 
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) or diabetes
  • Infections
  • Ruptured tendons
  • Psychotic reactions, such as hallucinations or extreme aggression
  • Glaucoma
  • Severe fluid retention
  • Signs of an allergic reaction, such as:
     
    • Unexplained rash
    • Hives
    • Itching
    • Unexplained swelling.
 
In general, these serious reactions are unlikely to occur when flurandrenolide tape is used as directed for a short period. Applying too much, over too large an area, and for too long may increase the risk of serious side effects. Keep in mind that flurandrenolide tape is a highly potent steroid, so serious reactions are more likely, compared with less potent steroids.
