How to Use a Topi-CLICK® 

 

  1. Remove the cap of the Topi-CLICK® applicator by placing your thumb under the tab and pushing upward 

    "A right hand holds a Topi-CLICK® with the cap on, and the thumb presses the tab of the cap up to remove the cap from the applicator."
  2. The Topi-CLICK® may need to be primed, which will ensure that the proper amount of medication comes out of the applicator. To prime it, rotate the base of the applicator until the cream easily comes out of the top. Please note that pressure may have built up in transit to your home. This can cause the cream to come our rapidly at first. However, the Topi‑CLICK® should come overfilled to account for priming. Therefore, you should still get the total amount of medication out of the applicator that was prescribed. 

    " A right hand holds a Topi-CLICK® while a left hand turns the base of it counterclockwise. Two blue arrows curve around the base of the applicator and point in the counterclockwise direction, indicating that it is being turned. Another blue arrow points to the top of the applicator, where a small amount of white cream is coming out."
  3. Turn the base so that it clicks the number of times specified in the instructions on your prescription label. This will ensure that the prescribed amount of topical medication will be available for application. Wait for 15–30 seconds to allow all the cream to collect on the top of the applicator.

A small clockface is positioned to the left of the Topi-CLICThe right half is shaded in light blue, and the middle of it says “30 sec.”"
  4. Watch the visual indicators when rotating the base of the Topi-CLICK®. Make sure to leave the base in the proper clicking position by aligning the ridges on the base with the ridges on the bottom of the tube. 

    " A left hand holds a Topi-CLICK® while a right hand turns the base so that it lines up with the ridges on the bottom of the applicator tube. A blue arrow curves around the base, indicating counterclockwise motion, and another arrow points to one of the ridges at the bottom of the applicator tube"
  5. Apply the medication by rubbing the cream from the top of the applicator to the area of skin as directed by your healthcare provider. It may take up to a minute for the medication to completely absorb into your skin. 

    "A right hand holds a Topi-CLICK® and rubs the top of it on the skin of an arm. The cream that was on the top of the applicator is smeared on the skin."
  6. Place the cap back on the Topi-CLICK® to prevent evaporation. Make sure the cap snaps on tightly. 

    "A right hand holds a Topi-CLICK® while a left hand places the cap on the top. A blue arrow to the right of the cap points down to indicate downward motion."
  7. When the bottom of the plunger inside the Topi-CLICK® reaches the line below the word “REFILL” on the side of the applicator, this means that approximately 32 clicks of medication are left in it. Approximately 12 clicks of medication remain when the bottom of the plunger reaches the line above the word “REFILL.” Use this to help you determine when you should refill your medication, if a refill is necessary. 

    "On the side of a Topi-CLICK®, the word “REFILL” is surrounded by a thin black line. An arrow points toward the word “REFILL.”"
