Psoriasis Home > Taclonex Drug Interactions

Calcium
Taclonex contains a synthetic form of vitamin D. Using too much may cause high levels of calcium in the blood (a condition known as hypercalcemia). Taking calcium could worsen this problem. For people using Taclonex appropriately, a normal dosage of a calcium supplement is unlikely to cause problems.
 
Corticorelin
Corticosteroids, including Taclonex, may make corticorelin less effective. Corticorelin is used as a diagnostic agent in tests for Cushing's syndrome or other similar problems. If you are being tested for Cushing's disease, make sure your healthcare provider knows you have been using Taclonex.
 
Lithium
Both Taclonex and lithium can increase the risk of high levels of calcium in the blood. While this is probably not a problem for normal usage of Taclonex, you may still want to check with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
 
Thiazide Diuretics
Both Taclonex and thiazide can increase the risk of high levels of calcium in the blood. While this is probably not a problem with normal usage of Taclonex, you may still want to check with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
 
Vitamin D
Taclonex contains a synthetic form of vitamin D. Using too much may cause high levels of calcium in the blood (a condition known as hypercalcemia). Taking vitamin D supplements could worsen this problem. For people using Taclonex appropriately, a normal dosage of a vitamin D supplement is unlikely to cause problems.
