When maximal clinical benefits have been obtained (usually after 8 months to 1 year of therapy), the patient may be maintained on a schedule of 2 to 4 applications per week. Perpetual maintenance therapy is essential in order to sustain the clinical improvements, although safety has not been established for use beyond 48 weeks for the 0.05% cream and 52 weeks for the 0.02% cream.
