Tazarotene Drug Information
Tazorac Gel Overview
Tazarotene is used to treat psoriasis or acne. It is a retinoid product related to Vitamin A. It works by affecting the growth of skin cells. The foam form of Tazorac Gel is only approved for use on acne.
How to Use Tazorac Gel
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using tazarotene and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Tazorac Gel is for use on the skin only. Wash and dry your hands before applying the medication. If you are treating acne, clean and dry the affected area. If you are treating psoriasis, make sure the skin is dry before applying the medication. Apply a thin film of the medication to the affected area and gently rub in as directed by your doctor, usually once a day in the evening. The Dosage of Tazorac Gel is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. If you are using the foam form of Tazorac Gel, shake the can before each use. The foam is flammable. Avoid smoking or going near an open flame while applying the medication. Avoid getting Tazorac Gel in your eyes, mouth, or vagina or on your eyelids or lips. If this happens, rinse with plenty of water. Do not cover, bandage, or wrap the area. Do not apply Tazorac Gel to normal, healthy skin. Also, do not apply Tazorac Gel to skin that is cut, scraped, sunburned, or affected by eczema. After applying the medication, wash your hands unless you are using Tazorac Gel to treat the hands. If you are using Tazorac Gel on your hands, do not touch your eyes with your hands. If you are also using a moisturizing cream or lotion, apply it at least 1 hour before applying Tazorac Gel. If you are using the foam form of Tazorac Gel, you may use a moisturizing cream or lotion as needed. Use Tazorac Gel regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day. Do not use large amounts or apply Tazorac Gel more often, or use for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve faster, and your risk of side effects will increase. Since Tazorac Gel is absorbed through the skin and may harm an unborn baby, women who are pregnant or who may become pregnant should not handle Tazorac Gel. Tell your doctor if you do not get better or if you get worse after several weeks of treatment.
