What is Taclonex Ointment?

Taclonex Ointment contains a combination of betamethasone and calcipotriene. Betamethasone is a steroid. It prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. Calcipotriene is a form of vitamin D. It works by decreasing the rate of skin cell reproduction.

Taclonex Ointment is a prescription medicine for use only on the skin and treats Psoriasis Vulgaris in adults 18 years of age and older.

Read the patient information leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using this product and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Taclonex Ointment is for use on the skin only. Rub it in gently and completely. Apply a thin layer to the affected area as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Wash your hands after using unless you are using this medication to treat the hands. Avoid getting any medication in the eyes or mouth. If this occurs, rinse right away with water. Do not apply this product to the face, underarms, or groin area. Do not use this medication for more than four weeks if you use the ointment or foam unless directed by your doctor.

If you are using the ointment, because of the increased risk of side effects, adults should not use more than 100 grams per week unless directed and closely monitored by the doctor. Also, children and teenagers should use at most 60 grams of ointment per week.

Do not bandage, wrap, or cover the treated area unless your doctor instructs you. Do not apply this medication to large areas of damaged skin or use it in skin folds. Only apply this medication as prescribed or use it more often or for longer than directed. Doing so may increase the amount of medication absorbed into your bloodstream, increasing your risk of side effects.

Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens. It may take a week to see any improvement and several weeks to see the full benefit of this medication.

It may not be safe to breastfeed while using this medicine.
