TAZORAC® Cream, 0.05% and 0.1% are not for oral use. Oral ingestion of the drug may lead to the same adverse effects as those associated with excessive oral intake of Vitamin A (hypervitaminosis A) or other retinoids. If oral ingestion occurs, the patient should be monitored, and appropriate supportive measures should be administered as necessary.

TAZORAC® Cream is contraindicated in women who are pregnant or may become pregnant.

If this drug is used during pregnancy, or if the patient becomes pregnant while taking this drug, treatment should be discontinued and the patient should be apprised of the potential hazard to the fetus [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS and Use In Specific Populations].


TAZORAC® Cream is contraindicated in individuals who have shown hypersensitivity to any of its components.
