A.

Taclonex ointment is a prescription medicine called a topical (skin-use only). Taclonex ointment is used on the skin to treat psoriasis vulgaris in adults. Taclonex ointment contains:

  • Calcipotriene hydrate, which is somewhat similar to vitamin D, but not the same as vitamin D.
  • Betamethasone dipropionate, which is a strong (potent) corticosteroid.

It is very important that you use Taclonex ointment only as directed in order to avoid serious side effects.

Taclonex ointment is not recommended for use in children. Taclonex ointment has not been studied in patients under the age of 18.
