What constitutes 'prolonged or excessive' exposure r/o

to sunlight, where Tazorac is concerned?

I just bought a tanning package, used it once, went to the derm and ended up with a script for Taz....

Re: What constitutes 'prolonged or excessive' exposure r/o

Because of heightened burning susceptibility, exposure to sunlight (including sunlamps) should be avoided unless deemed medically necessary,
and in such cases, exposure should be minimized during the use of TAZORAC
Cream. Patients must be warned to use sunscreens (minimum
SPF of 15) and protective clothing when using TAZORAC
Cream. Patients with sunburn should be advised not to use TAZORAC Cream until fully
recovered. Patients who may have considerable sun exposure due to their occupation and those patients with inherent sensitivity to sunlight
should exercise particular caution when using TAZORAC
Cream and ensure that the precautions outlined in the Information for Patients
subsection are observed.
TAZORAC
Cream should be administered with caution if the patient is also taking drugs known to be photosensitizers (e.g., thiazides,
tetracyclines, fluoroquinolones, phenothiazines, sulfonamides) because of the increased possibility of augmented photosensitivity.
Some individuals may experience excessive pruritus, burning, skin redness or peeling. If these effects occur, the medication should either be
discontinued until the integrity of the skin is restored, or the dosing should be reduced to an interval the patient can tolerate. However, efficacy
at reduced frequency of application has not been established. Alternatively, patients with psoriasis who are being treated with the 0.1%
concentration can be switched to the lower concentration. Weather extremes, such as wind or cold, may be more irritating to patients using
TAZORAC
Cream.

Is Tazorac used to treat Bi-Polar disorder?

Jennpleez,

Is your tanning package a "monthly unlimited" type or just a set number of sessions? Although most tanning salons do not give refunds on tanning packages some will suspend your package for the duration of a medical condition or treatment that precludes exposure to sunlamps/sunlight (if its a reasonable time period) until you can use it again. It doesn't hurt to ask. :)

Thanks Tiki ~ I will be sure to discuss it with them and see. I bought a # of sessions instead of a monthly and I think I have a year to use them, but I'll double check on all of that. Appreciate your input.
