Desoximetasone - Overview
Desoximetasone is a medication sometimes used in the management of plaque psoriasis. People who need a desoximetasone cream prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe desoximetasone ointment when appropriate to do so.
What Is Desoximetasone Used For?
Desoximetasone is marketed under the brand name Topicort and, like betamethasone (Celestone, Diprolene), desonide (Desonate, Tridesilon, Verdeso), and triamcinolone (Kenalog), belongs to a class of medications known as topical corticosteroid medications. As this type of medication, desoximetasone is thought to exert its effects by downregulating certain aspects of the immune system, including the production of inflammatory markers, cell signaling and protein metabolism. However, the exact mechanism of action by which desoximetasone exerts its effects is not fully understood. Nonetheless, given its clinical effects, desoximetasone is indicated for use in treating plaque psoriasis in adult patients.
Desoximetasone - Dosage and Cost
Desoximetasone is available as a 0.25% spray, cream, gel or ointment. Typically, desoximetasone is prescribed to be applied as a thin film twice per day that is rubbed into the site of application but the actual desoximetasone regimen depends on the health needs of the patient and the judgement of the medical provider. Desoximetasone should not be used in areas of atrophy and should not be used for longer than one month without reevaluation. Desoximetasone should not be used in the mouth, vagina or eyes. Desoximetasone is considered moderately affordable, costing under $50 per desoximetasone 0.25% cream tube containing 60 grams of desoximetasone. Desoximetasone coupons may be available online or through the manufacturer.
Can I Buy Desoximetasone Online?
One cannot just buy desoximetasone online in the United States as desoximetasone is a prescription medication. Because of this, desoximetasone OTC (over the counter) is not available at pharmacies, either. People who might need a desoximetasone cream prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe desoximetasone ointment or gel when appropriate to do so.
Desoximetasone - Side Effects
Desoximetasone can cause side effects when used, and concerns about the medication should be discussed with one's medical provider and pharmacist before use. Side effects that can result from desoximetasone use include irritation, pain, itching and dryness at the application side of the medication although it may only cause minimal photosensitization. Because desoximetasone is a steroid medication, it can cause suppression of the HPA axis if used over a long period of time. Desoximetasone and alcohol should not be used together. People with a known hypersensitivity to desoximetasone prescription medication or ingredients in the formulation should not use the medication.
