Luxiq is a prescription drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat inflammatory and pruritic (itchy) skin conditions. Luxiq is also known by its drug name, Betamethasone. Luxiq is sometimes prescribed to treat dermatological symptoms in people with food allergies. Since the FDA has not approved Luxiq specifically for this usage, it may be considered “off-label.”

Luxiq is a corticosteroid of mid-range potency. It is believed that Luxiq works by suppressing immune system activity.

How do I take it?
Prescribing information states that Luxiq is applied topically to the affected area one to four times a day.

Luxiq comes in topical cream, spray, lotion, and ointment forms.

Side effects
The FDA-approved label for Luxiq lists common side effects including painful stinging or burning, itching, redness, cracking, and dryness.

Rare but serious side effects listed for Luxiq include weight gain, mood or vision changes, fatigue, puffy face, trouble sleeping, and, in children, slowed growth.
