NATROBA (spinosad) Topical Suspension, is a slightly opaque, light orange colored, viscous topical suspension.
Spinosad, the active ingredient, is derived from the fermentation of a soil actinomycete bacterium, Saccharopolyspora spinosa.
Spinosad is a mixture of spinosyn A and spinosyn D in a ratio of approximately 5 to 1 (spinosyn A to spinosyn D).
| Mechanism of Action
Spinosad causes neuronal excitation in insects. After periods of hyperexcitation, lice become paralyzed and die.
| NATROBA Topical Suspension is a pediculicide indicated for the topical treatment of head lice infestations in patients four (4) years of age and older.
Wash (in hot water) or dry-clean all recently worn clothing, hats, used bedding and towels.
