Dovobet Gel is a medication used for the treatment of psoriasis, a skin condition that produces red scaly patches on the skin. It contains the active ingredients calcipotriol and betamethasone and is used to treat mild to moderate plaque psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris).

Dovobet Gel is used as a treatment for scalp psoriasis and should be applied to affected areas once daily.

Use and Dosage

This medication 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 to work.

Do not apply this medication on the face, large areas of damaged skin, skin folds, 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 this medication 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 this medication 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.

What should I avoid while using Dovonex?

Avoid using other skin medications on the areas you treat with Dovonex unless your doctor tells you to.

Do not get Dovonex in your eyes. If contact does occur, rinse with water.

Do not use vitamin or mineral supplements while you are using Dovonex, unless your doctor has told you to.

Avoid sunlight or tanning beds. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) when you are outdoors.

Do not smoke or go near naked flames because the ointment contains propylene glycol and there is a risk of severe burns. Fabric (clothing, bedding, dressings, etc) that has been in contact with the ointment burns more easily and is a serious fire hazard. Washing clothing and bedding may reduce product build-up but not remove it.
