Sorilux Medication Information
Sorilux® (calcipotriene foam) is available only by prescription and is used to treat plaque psoriasis. This product is a synthetic form of vitamin D; however, it is not clear how this medication works.
This medicine is not appropriate for everyone; your healthcare provider needs up-to-date information on your medical history and any other medications you are taking before prescribing Sorilux.
While most people tolerate this medication well, Sorilux can cause side effects. The most commonly reported reaction is redness. Fortunately, if problems do occur, they tend to be minor and easily treated.
Sorilux comes in the form of a foam and is typically applied twice daily to the affected areas. Make sure to avoid smoking and flames when applying this product and immediately afterwards, as it is flammable.
