Buy Dovonex brand or generic Calcipotriene prescription drug from Canada
Why is Dovonex prescribed?
Calcipotriene (Dovonex) cream is prescribed for the treatment of plaque psoriasis (the most common form of psoriasis causing thick, red, and scaly lesions on the skin). It is commonly found on the elbows, knees, lower back, or scalp.
What does it do?
Psoriasis is a condition where the skin becomes itchy and it may sting or burn and it makes the skin look more inflamed. Dovonex belongs to a drug class called synthetic vitamin D3 derivatives and it works by slowing down the overproduction of skin cells.
How should I apply it?
Dovonex and its generic equivalents are currently available as a 50mcg cream. Avoid getting Dovonex into your eyes or mouth.
Apply a thin layer of the medication onto the area to be treated and rub it in until it is absorbed.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if used properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, apply it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never apply two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before applying Dovonex?
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking, your current and previous medical history, and any allergic reactions to Dovonex or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
Do not apply Dovonex cream to cuts or broken, sunburned, or irritated skin.
Using Dovonex cream may cause your skin to be more sensitive to sunlight. Avoid exposing yourself to excessive amounts of sunlight and wear protective clothing, sunscreen, and use sunglasses when going outdoors.
