Tazorac is an acne cream used to treat acne vulgaris in adults and adolescents as well as plaque psoriasis in adults.

Tazarotene is a retinoid prodrug that binds to your retinoic acid receptors to reduce fine wrinkles, hyper- and hypopigmentation, and skin lesions. Thanks to its actions on these receptors, Tazorac cream supports your skin’s health and renewal to improve the appearance and texture of skin. When applied to affected skin, this cream medication helps treat acne lesions and plaque psoriasis.

Dosage and Administration

The administration of Tazorac cream will vary depending on the individual and skin condition being treated. Follow all your healthcare provider’s instructions and read packaging labels carefully to ensure the best therapeutic response during treatment. Do not change your dose on your own.

  • Apply in the evening before bed
  • Apply to skin, do not ingest
  • Avoid contact with your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Do not apply to open wounds, sunburns, or irritated skin
  • Women should start using Tazorac cream during a menstrual period
  • You can apply lotion or other moisturizing products before or after the cream but ensure that the product has dried before applying the next

  • If you work outside

Tazorac cream can cause your skin to be more sensitive to the sun and can get sunburned more easily. Avoid direct exposure to sunlight or artificial UV rays and wear sunscreen.

If you also use benzoyl peroxide to treat acne, do not use it at the same time as Tazorac cream. Use one in the morning and one at night.

Some drugs may interact with Tazorac cream and cause adverse reactions. Tell your healthcare provider about all the medications you take, including over the counter medicines, but especially any of the following:

  • Antibiotic medications
  • Any medicine that makes your skin sensitive to sunlight

How long does it take for Tazorac to be effective?

Tazorac cream is quickly absorbed into your skin and begins affecting your retinoic acid receptors, but it may take 1 or 2 weeks of daily treatment before its actions take effect. Your condition may appear to worsen when you begin treatment, but this is common and should improve within 12 weeks.

Yes, you can apply moisturizers, lotions, and other emollient products while using Tazorac cream. These products can be applied before or after you apply Tazorac, but whichever is applied first.
