Important Safety Information about Sorilux® (calcipotriene) Foam
The propellant in Sorilux Foam is ﬂammable. Instruct the patient to avoid ﬁre, ﬂame, and smoking during and immediately following application. Sorilux Foam should be used during pregnancy only if the potential beneﬁt justiﬁes the potential risk to the fetus. It is not known whether calcipotriene is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Sorilux Foam is administered to a nursing woman. Safety and effectiveness of Sorilux Foam in pediatric patients less than 18 years of age have not been established. Sorilux Foam has not been evaluated in patients with erythrodermic, exfoliative, or pustular psoriasis. Sorilux Foam is not for oral, ophthalmic, or intravaginal use.
