Journal of Dental Pathology and Medicine The only cutaneous side effect of calcipotriene is local irritation, which occurs in approximately 15 percent of patients.10 Calcipotriene is not recommended for use on the face or with occlusion. Hypercalcemia is a potential side effect of this agent when the dosage exceeds 100 g per week. This effect does not usually occur with weekly use of 100 g or less.11,12 Most reports of hypercalcemia have been in patients who received prolonged therapy with 200 g or more per week. For localized psoriasis, the recommended dosages do not require monitoring of serum or urinary calcium levels. However, calcipotriene should be used with caution in patients with compromised renal function or a history of renal calculi. false After appropriate control of the disease is maintained, topical therapy can be discontinued until a flare-up occurs. Use of emollients should be recommended, to reduce the scaly appearance of the lesions and to potentially reduce the amount of corticosteroid needed.
