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 and works by slowing down the growth of skin cells so that they don't build up into thickened, scaly skin patches.

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.

  • Topical medicine is for use only on the skin.
  • 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.
  • Call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve or if they get worse.
