Calcipotriol is a stimulated form of vitamin D that belongs to the antipsoriatic drug class. It prevents the development of skin cells, which helps to regulate psoriatic disease. Calcipotriol has proven to inhibit cell growth and development. I also demonstrate a regulatory role on the skin's immune system, thus reducing the expression of specific immune markers responsible for the development of psoriasis. 

Calcipotriol acts like Vitamin D. It further works by bringing down the rate with which skin cells develop, consequently controlling the psoriatic condition.

Calcipotriene is a form of vitamin D. It is also known as calcipotriol in other countries. It works by gradually reducing the growth of skin cells so that they don't build up into thickened, scaly skin patches. Thus, calcipotriol ointment is valuable as a first-line therapy option for managing feeble psoriasis and other antipsoriatic agents for more severe psoriasis. In addition, calcipotriol ointment proved beneficial in combination with other topical, phototherapy, or systemic antipsoriatic treatments, reducing the dosage and duration of some of these treatments and potentially improving their benefit/risk ratio.

Calcipotriol Ointment should be applied to the affected skin once or twice daily.

To make sure that this is the proper treatment for you before you start using calcipotriol, you must consult with our team of the pharmacist or your known doctor:

  • If you are an expectant mother, trying for a baby or breastfeeding.
  • If you have been told you have a form of psoriasis known as erythrodermic or pustular psoriasis. This is because a skin specialist doctor should only treat more severe conditions of psoriasis like these.
  • If you have a history of high calcium levels in your blood or your body has problems processing calcium.
  • Suppose you have been prescribed any other medicine or using any other skin preparations. This includes any drugs that are available to buy without a prescription and herbal and complementary therapies.

  • How long does it take calcipotriene to work
    Calcipotriol may begin showing improvement after around fourteen days of starting the treatment, yet this may differ from one individual to another.
