Dovobet How to Take

This is a combination product that contains 2 medications: Calcipotriol and betamethasone. Dovobet is used to treat psoriasis. Calcipotriol belongs to the class of medications known as vitamin D analogues and works by controlling the excessive production of skin cells seen in psoriasis. Betamethasone belongs to the class of medications known as corticosteroids and works by reducing itching and inflammation.

All forms of Dovobet are used to treat psoriasis that develops on the body. The gel and foam forms of Dovobet may also be used to treat psoriasis that has developed on the scalp.

Dovobet may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Dovobet may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Dovobet may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Dovobet for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are being given Dovobet, speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Dovobet without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Dovobet to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use Dovobet if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Dovobet Dosage

Dovobet is applied once daily to affected areas and gently rubbed in. Do not apply the medication to areas that do not have psoriasis.

The maximum adult weekly dose of calcipotriol - betamethasone combined is 100 grams. When used on the scalp, the gel may be used for up to 4 weeks. If it is being used on the body, the gel may need to be used for up to 8 weeks. The recommended treatment period for the ointment is 4 weeks. Most people will notice a benefit during this time. Some people may require treatment for longer than 4 weeks. The medication can be stopped once your condition has improved.

Calcipotriol - betamethasone gel should not be applied from 12 hours before to 12 hours after chemical hair treatments such as dyes or perms.

After applying the medication to the affected areas, do not wash it off. The medication needs to stay in contact with the affected areas in order to work.

Do not apply Dovobet on the face, large areas of damaged skin, in skin folds, the underarms, genitals, groin, or under dressings that do not breathe. Wash your hands after applying calcipotriol - betamethasone so that you do not get the medication on other parts of your body. Avoid getting the medication in your eyes or on your face. If the medication gets on your face, wash it off. If it gets in your eyes, flush the eyes with plenty of water. Do not take Dovobet by mouth.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to use Dovobet exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not apply more than one dose on any given day. Do not apply a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Do not use the ointment from any tube that has been open for longer than 12 months. Do not use the gel from any bottle that has been open for longer than 6 months. The foam should be used within 6 months of opening. 

Store Dovobet at room temperature and keep it out of the reach of children. The aerosol foam is flammable. It should be stored away from sources of heat, open flames or sparks.

Dovobet Precautions

There may be an interaction between calcipotriol - betamethasone and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Dovobet. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Dovobet Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Dovobet.

Absorption: Applying Dovobet over large areas of damaged skin, in skin folds, or under dressings that do not breathe could promote the absorption of betamethasone into the blood. This could cause unwanted effects similar to those that happen after taking oral (by mouth) corticosteroid medications for long periods of time. If you notice symptoms of using steroid medications for long periods of time, such as weakness, increased urination, increased thirst, fatigue, or weight loss, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

High calcium in the blood: If Dovobet is used for severe psoriasis over a large area of skin or is used more than the maximum recommended weekly amount of 100 g of ointment, gel, or foam, there is a risk of developing high calcium levels in the blood. Your doctor may monitor your blood calcium levels regularly by doing blood tests while you are using Dovobet.

Kidney function: If you have decreased kidney function or Kidney Disease, discuss with your doctor how Dovobet may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dovobet, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: If you have decreased liver function or liver disease, discuss with your doctor how Dovobet may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Dovobet, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Medical treatment: Inform all health professionals involved in your care that you have been using a topical (skin-applied) corticosteroid.

Prolonged use: Using topical corticosteroid medications for a long period of time can cause skin to thin or soften or cause stretch marks. Your doctor may recommend you stop using Dovobet once in a while or to apply to one area of the body at a time. Suddenly stopping corticosteroid medication may cause psoriasis to return.

Skin Cancer: When calcipotriol is used with ultraviolet radiation (some psoriasis treatments use light therapy), there may be an increased risk of developing skin cancer caused by ultraviolet radiation. Calcipotriol alone does not cause cancer. While using Dovobet, avoid exposure to sunlight and artificial ultraviolet light (e.g., tanning beds).

Use on the face: Dovobet should not be used on any part of the face since this may cause redness, irritation, and itchiness. If any of these skin reactions develop, you should stop using Dovobet and contact your doctor immediately. Wash your hands thoroughly after applying Dovobet to the affected areas and avoid touching any part of your face with your hands.

Using other corticosteroids: Betamethasone dipropionate is a potent corticosteroid and should not be used at the same time as other corticosteroid medications, particularly on the scalp. If you have been prescribed another scalp product containing corticosteroids, contact your doctor to determine which product you should be using.

Pregnancy: Dovobet should not be used during pregnancy. If you become pregnant while using Dovobet, contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Betamethasone passes into breast milk. It is not known if calcipotriol passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are using Dovobet, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Dovobet have not been established for children.
