What is Taclonex Scalp?

Taclonex Scalp 0.005 %-0.064 % Topical Susp
Other Brand Names: Taclonex Scalp
Uses: This product contains 2 drugs (betamethasone and calcipotriene) and is used to treat psoriasis of the scalp. Betamethasone is a very strong corticosteroid drug that helps decrease the swelling, redness, and itching of the skin that occurs with this condition. Calcipotriene, which is also known as calcipotriol in other countries, is a form of vitamin D. It works by slowing down the growth of skin cells so that they do not build up into thickened, scaly skin patches. This medication should not be used if you have certain types of psoriasis (skin patches with pus-filled blisters, psoriasis with intense redness/shedding/oozing). Consult your doctor for more information. This product is not recommended for use in children because they may be at an increased risk for side effects. See also Side Effects and Precautions sections.
