This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

The active ingredient in Advantan belongs to the group of medicines called corticosteroids. The corticosteroid in Advantan is suitable to put on the skin. It is therefore called a "topical" corticosteroid, which is sometimes shortened to "topical steroid".
When Advantan is put on the skin, it relieves the redness, swelling, itching and irritation of the skin in eczema and psoriasis.

Advantan preparations are available only with a doctor's prescription.

Advantan is made up as four different preparations. Each has a distinct look and feel. They are:

• ointment,
• fatty ointment,
• cream and
• lotion.

The most solid is the fatty ointment; the most runny is the lotion. The ointment and cream are in-between in thickness.

Each preparation is especially suitable in consistency for a particular area of skin or skin condition needing treatment. Your doctor will prescribe the preparation most suitable for you.

The Advantan preparations are medicines and should only be used on skin affected by the conditions described below.

All four Advantan preparations treat eczema.

Advantan ointment, fatty ointment and cream (but NOT lotion) also treat psoriasis.

Eczema is a skin condition with redness, swelling, oozing of fluid, crusting and later scaling. It is often very itchy.

Psoriasis is a skin disorder with raised, rough, reddened areas covered with dry, fine, silvery scales.

Your doctor may have prescribed Advantan for another reason. Discuss this with him/her.

Advantan is not addictive. It is not expected to affect your ability to drive a car or operate machinery.
