Protopic (Tacrolimus) ointment is used to treat the symptoms of atopic dermatitis, a skin disease also know as eczema. It is prescribed when a patient cannot use other topical medications or whose condition has not improved with another medication.

Protopic is in the immunosuppressants class of medications. It works to stop the immune system from producing the substances which cause eczema.
