Amobet is a topical antimycotic. Amobet belongs to a new chemical class, and its fungicidal action is based on an alteration of the fungal cell membrane targeted primarily on sterol biosynthesis. The ergosterol content is reduced, and at the same time unusual sterically nonplanar sterols accumulate.

Pregnancy & Breastfeeding use
No experience exists of use during pregnancy and nursing, therefore, the use of Amobet should be avoided during pregnancy and lactation. Reproductive toxicology studies showed no evidence of teratogenicity in laboratory animals but embryotoxicity was observed at high oral doses. The systemic absorption of amorolfine during and after topical administration is very low and therefore the risk to the human foetus appears to be negligible. Amobet Cream should not be used during pregnancy and/or lactation unless clearly necessary. Breast-feeding women must not use the cream in the breast area.
Amobet cream must not be reused by patients who have shown hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
Amobet is for topical use. In the event of accidental oral ingestion, an appropriate method of gastric emptying may be used.
