Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication.

Taclonex 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. Taclonex contains 2 drugs. Betamethasone is a very strong corticosteroid drug that works by decreasing swelling, redness, and itching. Calcipotriene is a form of vitamin D. It is also known as calcipotriol in other countries. It works by slowing down the growth of skin cells so that they don't build up into thickened, scaly skin patches. Taclonex 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.

Taclonex is for use on the skin only. Apply a thin layer to the affected area(s) as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Rub it in gently and completely.

Do not apply Taclonex to the face, underarms, or groin area. Do not use Taclonex for more than 4 weeks if you are using the ointment or foam (or 8 weeks if you are using the cream) 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 of the ointment per week unless directed and closely monitored by the doctor. Also, children and teenagers should not use more than 60 grams of the ointment per week. If you are using the foam, shake the can before using. Do not use more than 60 grams of the foam every 4 days.

Do not apply Taclonex to large areas of damaged skin or use it in skin folds. Do not apply more of Taclonex than prescribed or use it more often or for longer than directed.
