Silkis How to Take

Calcitriol topical belongs to the class of medications known as vitamin D analogues. It is also known as a nonsteroidal antipsoriatic agent. Calcitriol topical is used to treat mild to moderate plaque-type psoriasis (skin condition) involving up to 35% of the body surface area.

Silkis (Calcitriol-topical) works by controlling the excessive production of skin cells seen in psoriasis, thereby eliminating the red, scaly patches seen in the skin condition. You may notice an improvement after about 2 weeks of treatment.

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

Your doctor may have suggested Silkis (Calcitriol-topical) 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 Silkis (Calcitriol-topical), speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Silkis (Calcitriol-topical) without consulting your doctor.

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


Discreet Packaging

Your privacy is important. That's why we send your medication inside a plain delivery box so no one will know what's inside.

Silkis Dosage

Calcitriol topical should be applied to the affected areas with psoriasis twice daily, morning and evening. Do not use more than 30 g of Silkis (Calcitriol-topical) daily, and only use Silkis (Calcitriol-topical) if the affected body area is 35% or less.

Wash and gently dry the affected area. Gently rub in the ointment until it is no longer visible. Do not cover the area with bandage or any other materials. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after each application. Once the psoriasis improves, your doctor may advise you to stop using calcitriol. Your doctor may advise you to use the medication again if the psoriasis lesions reappear.

Many things can affect the dose of a 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 Silkis (Calcitriol-topical) 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 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.

Store Silkis (Calcitriol-topical) at room temperature and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
