I am using this medication with a steriod. The combo has helped this flare up after using them together for 2 weeks. Noone has discussed the expense of this drug. I have had psoriasis for 56 years and have had many drugs and treatments. This is the most expensive drug I have taken. I checked the price with several local pharmacies and I'm glad to say that my insurance covered most of the cost of this drug.

After having psoriasis for 10 years, I had bad experiences with the creams. They were not effective and they stained clothing and bedding. I have been using Doxonex for 6 months and have found it to work quite well. I the redness and scales have improved tremendously. Although, we all know that psoriasis will flare-up and is not curable, I like the resultrs that I have had with this drug preparation.

I have Morphia, and have been taking dovonex, for close to a year now, Im waiting for my skin to turn back normal to what it was before but, so far no luck all the medicaton dose for me is make the skin in that area smooth for maybe three hours at a time and then i have to reapply. Plus this medication is very pricy i have no insu. and pay close to 500.00 per tube and have to buy once ever two months.

Worked quite well. But I can't understand the comments about price. It has been out in a perfect acceptable generic form for quite some time now.

Have been prescribed Dovonex, and it works, but wish it wasn't so expensive

This medication has helped me. It has never stung or hurt when I have applied it on my scalp and elbow. The hardest thing about it is remembering to apply it in the morning and evening.

I have psoriasis on my fingers at the end of the fingers I too have experienced burning when using this, I dont think I have tried to use this medicine like I should so I am going to try this for 2 weeks and see what happens but just using it on and off does not work.

Finally a treatment for Vitiligo. I've used Dovonex for a few weeks in combination with a steroids and light therapy and i'm starting to see some amazing results. My pigment has returned on my face and i'm starting to see results on my hands and elbows. However, i am concern with the long-term effects. I haven't found anything negitive thus far.

I have a condition on my nose that behaves like psoriosis but the Dr. says may be a form of rosacea, which peals deeply and repeatedly. Devonex has slowed the pealing and may with time stop the pealing altogetner. The tube it comes in is a disaster! Everytime it is opened it oozes product out far more than one application, It is very annoying for such an expensive product to be in a cheap crimped tube!!

I started using Dovonex oitment for Psoriasis on my leg. I have followed my instructions for two weeks and must say i am in pain consistently. It burns, itches, and has made my skin raw. In addition to this my leg has now blown up like a balloon. I have been to the doctors three times and they dont seem to know what is going on and told me to continue the treatment and take anti biotics for a possible infection. It has kept me awake at night and close to tears. Im begining to prfer having psoriasis than having the treatment.
