Drug Name Confusion Between Kuric and Carac

 

The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) recently reported on the potential for mix-ups between two topical creams: Kuric (ketoconazole) and Carac (fluorouracil). Kuric is used to treat fungal infections and seborrheic dermatitis. Carac is used to treat multiple actinic or solar keratoses of the face and anterior scalp.
