Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated geriatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of mupirocin topical cream in the elderly. No information is available on the relationship of age to the effects of mupirocin topical ointment in the geriatric population. Safety and efficacy have not been established.

    A standardized safety classification and rating system identifies the types of safety hazards and specific categories of consumers who may be at risk (e.g. pregnant women, children, elderly, etc.). Another more recent handbook on herbal safety has recently been published by Simon Mills and Kerry Bone, both respected physicians and herbalists.   The use of oxymetazoline can result in rebound nasal congestion, so patients should be counseled not to use the product longer than 3 to 5 days consecutively. It has only a local effect, so little to no drug interactions are suspected. No dosage adjustments are needed for renal or .
