What is Taclonex Ointment?

Taclonex Ointment is used to treat psoriasis. It helps to reduce the redness, thickening and scaling of the skin that occurs with this condition. Healthy skin lowers your risk for infection and protects you against the environment. This product contains two drugs. Betamethasone is a strong corticosteroid drug that decreases swelling, redness, and itching. Calcipotriene is a form of vitamin D. It works by slowing down the growth of skin cells so that they don't build up into thickened, scaly skin patches. This product should not be used if you have certain types of psoriasis (skin patches with pus-filled blisters, psoriasis over most of your body with intense redness/shedding/oozing). Consult your doctor for more information.

Use Taclonex Ointment exactly as it was prescribed for you. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. To use:

  • Wash your hands before and after using Taclonex unless you use this medicine to treat the skin on your hands.
  • Apply a thin layer of the medicine to the affected skin and rub it in gently. Only apply this medicine over a large skin area if your doctor has told you to.
  • Do not cover the treated skin area with a bandage or other covering unless your doctor tells you to. Covering treated areas can increase the amount of medicine absorbed through your skin and may cause harmful effects.
  • You may need blood or urine tests while using this medicine.
  • Call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve or if they get worse.
  • It would be best if you did not stop using Taclonex suddenly. Follow your doctor's instructions about tapering your dose.

Before using Taclonex Ointment, tell your doctor and pharmacist:

  • If you have an infection or have ever had diabetes, liver disease, or Cushing's syndrome,
  • If you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. 
  • If you are having surgery, including dental surgery, tell the doctor or dentist that you are using betamethasone topical.
