Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I have had psoriasis for over 15yrs and Taclonex was the only medication that actually cleared it up. It worked quickly and the psoriasis stayed gone I was only fortunate enough to experience this medication because my dermatologist gave me free samples and I was able to spread that out for a year. My psoriasis stayed clear for about 6 months after I stopped using the Taclonex. My only cons to this medication is it tore up my fingernails (I recommend applying it with gloves) and the price! I was very disappointed when I went to fill my prescription and found out the price. I just cannot afford it. Almost $800.00 with ins! That is the only reason I gave 7 stars. If it were actually affordable I would give it 100 stars.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I love Taclonex, this is amazing I have had psoriasis for the past 12 years. I have been waiting many years for something to finally help my knees and elbows. After a week using this product saw the results. I couldn't be happier.
Taclonex Scalp (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I love this medication. I use it on my skin. I only wish I could get enough to last me the entire month. I usually run out in a week but really clear up that week.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I love Taclonex. I have had psoriasis for the past 25 years. I never wore short sleeve shirts or shorts until I started using Taclonex. Thank you to my Dermatologist. I have tried so many medicines and nothing worked. It is kind of greasy but I have been waiting many years for something to finally help my knees and elbows. I couldn't be happier.

Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: This is AMAZING! I've had nasty eczema on my index finger for almost a year where it was almost impossible to use the digit. It was thick, unbendable, cracking, bleeding and painful! After a week, I actually have feeling back in that finger. It has cleared up spots on my neck and behind my ears. Just amazing!
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: My scalp psoriasis began about 5 years, about the same time I was put on high blood pressure medication. I'm not sure if there is any connection. I have tried all kinds of medicines as well as laser therapy with no success. Recently, I went to a new dermatologist who prescribed Taclonex with great success. However, if I stop using it for more than 3 days, the psoriasis starts up again. One of my complaints is I have a hard time washing it out of my hair. The day after I use the medicine, I wash my hair at least 4 x) and it still is greasy.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I tried other medicine that did not work and costed me over $100.00. I tried the Taclonex liquid in a bottle for my scalp and applied to my legs. My scalp cleared in a week, my legs are coming along very well. The dark patches have completely vanished. When I went back to my doctor he was very impressed and so was I. I asked for a prescription for the ointment for my legs and use the other on my scalp on a as need basic. My doctor office also gave me the prescription card, I'm able to get 6 bottles of liquid for my scalp and 6 ointments for my legs.

Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: First tube working well, elbows and knees clear. Butt and back of legs showing signs of improvement. Doctor gave zero co-pay coupon or I would not be using this medication. Insurance people think a 60 gram tube should last three weeks.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I had psoriasis come up suddenly all over my feet - after a year I could barely walk - 2 days and my feet are almost clear. This will definitely be a staple in my medicine cabinet!
Review by Murray55 (taken for 6 months to 1 year):
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I have been using Taclonex for about 10 months. It seems to do some good for a week or so at a time, then things flare up as it seems like I have been using nothing. It just is not very consistent.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I absolutely love this medicine. It works wonders for my small spots of plaque psoriasis on my body. I also have scalp psoriasis which I also treat with Taclonex. I use it mainly around my hair line because it makes my hair very greasy and oily looking. This is the only ointment type of topical medication I have been prescribed that legitimately works. I was diagnosed with psoriasis at the age of 3 and am now 16 and have been using this for about 3 years now. I find that there aren't really any side effects that I can think of. If I routinely apply this every night before I go to bed, my psoriasis will disappear within a week and stay gone or come back in about two weeks without applying it.
betamethasone / calcipotriene for Psoriasis: Have had Psoriasis for years now and have tried many different products, but nothing worked as well, and as quick as this one. Helps calm the pain and flakes within days.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: Have been using Taclonex for the past year. No relief from psoriasis from scalp and legs and this is supposed to be the best on the market. Cost is restrictive.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I got a Zero Co-pay coupon for this medication and have been using it for about 8 months now with little relief from psoriasis. It's greasy, takes a while to apply to all my areas, and doesn't work any better than regular lotion for me.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I love Taclonex to manage my symptoms of psoriasis. My problems started after the birth of my first child. I later learned pregnancy makes autoimmune conditions much worse. While living in the Bay Area I was fortunate enough to meet a nutritionist who explained to me the true causes of psoriasis. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease but can be made better by identifying and eliminating foods that trigger an immune response in your system. An ALCAT blood test can identify your problematic foods and those food changes combined with Taclonex resulted in total clearance of psoriasis. I can't tell you what a relief it has been.

Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I have pretty bad psoriasis. It was mild at first and I was prescribed Taclonex and Desonide which worked like a charm. I changed insurances and they didn't cover Taclonex so my psoriasis spread like wild fire. What is worse is I am getting married in less than a year and it is very noticeable on my arms. I finally got the insurnace company to grant me an exception so I have begun using Taclonex religiously! I hope it clears by my wedding.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: This drug was extremely effective at treating my psoriasis. I have fairly severe Guttate psoriasis in which I develop small spots over large areas of my body (as opposed to one large, localized spot). After applying Taclonex for only three days or so, the spots began to clear up almost completely. There are no side effects that I notice with this medication. The only negative involved is that the salve is greasy and difficult to apply. I would literally spend twenty minutes applying it to all the small spots on my body twice a day. That, combined with the fact that my whole body would be covered in a thin greasy film, led me to eventually seek out other treatment. If these don't apply to you, this medicine is hard to beat.

Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I have been on Taclonex and urea cream for my psoriasis for over a year now. I have also been receiving light therapy and laser light therapy as well, and it has still not cleared up. Just wondering if anyone else out there has experienced the same thing as myself and have they tried anything else. Sick of Psoriasis....
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I went to the dermatologist after having psoriasis on my hands, elbows, fingers and toes. He gave me Laclotion and Clobetasol foam. These did not work after using them for 2 weeks! I went to a different doctor, who gave me Taclonex, and even though it's greasy when you put it on (not like the Clobetasol foam that dried up right away), but the Taclonex got rid of the psoriasis after 7 days. It really is amazing.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I have been suffering from scalp psoriasis for 8 months and my dermatologist prescribed me Talconex two days ago and it's almost all gone. This is the greatest.
Taclonex (betamethasone / calcipotriene) for Psoriasis: I developed psoriasis after the birth of my first child. It responded well to Taclonex, but I had to stop using it for my second pregnancy. My elbows, and now the tops of my feet, became really bad recently and I called for a new prescription. After weeks of terrible discomfort it is almost cleared in a few days time. I have never experienced any side effects. I love this medicine.
