CALCIPOTRIENE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Plaque Psoriasis: “So far, I just received this medicine last Monday, so it’s been a week. It’s definitely thinner and not dark red and scaly. I must say it’s working great and I’m hoping it just continues to get better and finally clear. Right now it’s on my arms and lower back and little spots on my legs. So let’s hope that In a month it goes away and not come back! Praying !”

Dovonex (calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: “I think Donovex is fantastic! I had psoriasis on my elbow/ fore arm area… and it was getting worse. I was then prescribed the Donoxex cream and it was completely gone within a couple of weeks. I never had to finish the tube. In fact, I would recommend not continuing the cream after it clears so that you don’t build up an intolerance to it. But I highly recommend taking a high quality D3 supplement. I know women that take 5,000-10,000 mg a day. We have become extremely deficient in D3 and many illnesses and diseases are a result of the deficiency.”

For Psoriasis: “I have been using this for a scalp condition called Lichen planopilaris somewhat related to psoriasis, however it affects the hair follicles on the scalp. After a week of use I noticed significant improvement in itching and scaling. It is going on 6 weeks now, and I continue to see slow but steady progress. What I really want to emphasize here is that I found out the hard way that this product is extremely toxic to cats. Even a small amount can be deadly. My cat drinks in the shower bottom after I shower this off each morning, and he became very ill. After costly vet bills, we were able to save him. Please be very careful with this around your pets.”

Dovonex (calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: “Have been using this for 2 years. It does work to control the areas but only while using it. When I stop the spots come back as normal. Thankfully it does temporarily work”

For Psoriasis: “I have had psoriasis for a year and was very inflamed & painful. After seeing my GP I was given this medication for it to use twice a day for a week. Tomorrow is the end of that week & honestly the wounds have all healed, redness has gone down completely in most areas others are just a little pink now. This is such a brilliant medication! My only complaint is that it did burn a little when I applied it, however this may be due to the wounds.”

Dovonex (calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: “I must be in the 10% who react to Dovonex. I have mild plaque psoriasis on my scalp and this cream made it so much worse! After one week of usage, my whole scalp was inflamed and scaly, as well as a nice ring around my face. Even my ears! The literature says this will happen in 10% of cases. Lucky me. I discontinued immediately.”
