FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: TACLONEX

User Comments:


For Psoriasis “I have had Scalp psoriasis for over 20 years, and about 10 years ago developed it in my ears as well. I was able to calm the scalp psoriasis for a long time with Nioxin shampoo and scalp therapy, but nothing was helping with my ears – They were so bad with plaques at times I couldn’t hear well, and forget wearing a headset for work! 3 days ago my doctor prescribed Taclonex after so many other things didn’t work. Today I was able to wear ear buds for the first time in 5 years. As for my scalp, it started flaring up about a year ago, so I’m using Taclonex on my scalp as well. I don’t notice as much change on my scalp yet, but I do notice a reduction in itching. Drawback – Very greasy in the hair, hard to wash out.”

For Psoriasis “Taclonex Susp. has turned my life around! I primarily use it on my scalp and sometimes on the cuticles of my toes. I no longer look like a walking dandruff commercial. In the beginning, I did use it about 3-4 times in a row, at night. Then I’d shampoo with a product that had salicylic acid in it. After about 6 months, I didn’t need to use the Taclonex as often. It has become an “as needed” medication for me. When my scalp starts itching, it’s time to start using the Taclonex Susp.I did get a Zero Co-Pay card my derm and have not paid anything for this.Do have psoriasis everywhere else.”

For Psoriasis “I have been on it for a year and never gotten any better after the first week. This is my last refill just hoping for a miracle.”

For Plaque Psoriasis “Along with Otezla I had great results! No itch, no misery, no side effects other than clearer skin. All my scaling and flakes are invisible except of my left calve which is a faint light pink.”

For Psoriasis “I’ve had psoriasis for 15 years and I used the taclonex ointment for a couple of years before going on biologics. Last month I had a flare up while on Stelara and my derm told me taclonex had been reformulated into a suspension and he wanted me to try it and gave me a coupon for $0 copay. Yay! I take the RX to be filled and find out that my insurance will not cover it and the coupon pays up to $300 my portion was $1433. The ointment worked well for me, so I just knew the reformulated version would work wonders. I used the suspension 2x/day for a month. This medication was extremely greasy, ruined my sheets and my clothes and actually made my psoriasis worse. I would NOT recommend this product. Try clobetasol instead.”

For Psoriasis “This product is extremely greasy. It does not absorb into the skin and sits on the surface until eventually it will wipe off on clothes, furniture, bed sheets etc. As result it can’t really be used in the morning, day or evening. Disappointingly CVS would not take it back for a refund on the day of sale. Also called Leo Pharmaceuticals, who make the product, and they could only offer an exchange for the same product! Outrageous considering how much money the industry makes!! Now I have 2 bottles of this expensive product I cannot use. I recommend to get the Clobetasol cream and stear clear of this one.”
