Chemical Name : Clobetasol Propionate
Clobex Information : Clobex Shampoo is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe scalp psoriasis in subjects 18 years of age and over and is available by prescription only.
Clobex Shampoo overcomes existing treatment limitations by delivering the corticosteroid clobetasol in a new short contact shampoo formulation. Clobex Shampoo can be applied directly to dry scalp once daily and after waiting for 15 minutes, is simply lathered with water and then rinsed off. In clinical trials Clobex Shampoo s formulation was preferred by patients for its high level of cosmetic acceptability.
This shampoo should be used only on the scalp. Avoid contact with the eyes, nose and mouth. Do not bandage, wrap or cover the affected area unless directed by your doctor. Apply a thin film of shampoo to your dry scalp by squeezing the bottle directly over the affected area, once daily, or as directed by your doctor. Gently rub the shampoo into the affected area, leaving it on your scalp for 15 minutes. Wash your hands immediately after applying the shampoo. Then wet your scalp, lather and rinse the shampoo off thoroughly. Also rinse any other body parts (e.g., face, neck, shoulders) that may have come in contact with the shampoo. The use of additional non-medicated shampoo is not necessary to cleanse your hair, although it may be used if desired. Do not use this medication more often or for a longer period than prescribed because the risk of side effects may be increased. Do not use more than 50 ml (1.75 oz.) of shampoo per week. Treatment with this medication should be limited to 4 weeks. If your condition does not improve within 4 weeks, contact your doctor.

If any of these effects persist or worsen, inform your doctor promptly. Tell your doctor immediately if any of these serious side effects occur: thinning skin, swelling of the hands/feet.
