What is Duobrii?
Duobrii contains the prescription medicines halobetasol and tazarotene. Halobetasol is a steroid and tazarotene is a substance similar to vitamin A. Duobrii Lotion is used to treat plaque psoriasis in adults, either on its own or in combination with other treatments.
Duobrii is a lotion that should be applied as a thin layer to the affected skin and rubbed in gently. You should not apply this medicine over a large area of skin unless your doctor has told you to. The area treated should not be covered with a bandage or other covering unless your doctor tells you to. Covering the treated area can increase the amount of medicine absorbed through your skin and may cause harmful effects. You should stop using the medicine once your symptoms are under control.
It is not known if Duobrii is safe and effective in children under 18 years of age.
Duobrii active ingredients
Corticosteroids are known to affect many functions in the body such as cellular signaling, how your immune system is working, inflammation, and the production, breakdown, and use of protein in the body. Exactly how halobetasol works against plaque psoriasis is however not fully understood.
Tazarotene is converted in the body into its active form, tazarotenic acid. Tazarotenic acid attaches itself to specific receptors known as retinoic acid receptors. How this helps tazarotenic acid to work against plaque psoriasis is not known.
