Pharmacological action


Calcipotriol is a synthetic analogue of the active metabolite of vitamin D. It inhibits the proliferation of keratinocytes and accelerates their morphological differentiation.

Betamethasone - a glucocorticosteroid (GCS) for external use has a local anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, vasoconstrictive and immunosuppressive effect, however, the exact mechanisms of the anti-inflammatory effect of steroids for external use are not fully understood. The use of occlusive dressings enhances the effect of corticosteroids, as this increases their penetration into the skin.


With the use of XAMIOL®, the absorption of calcipotriol and betamethasone through intact skin is less than 1%. When applying the drug to psoriatic plaques and under occlusive dressings, the absorption of the external corticosteroids increases. Since a depot of the drug is created in the skin, its elimination from the skin occurs within a few days. Betamethasone is metabolized in the liver and kidneys with the formation of glucuronides and sulfoesters, excretion is carried out through the intestines and kidneys.

After applying the drug, wash your hands.

With the development of secondary infections, antimicrobial therapy should be prescribed. Discontinuation of treatment of psoriasis with local corticosteroids drugs may be associated with a risk of developing generalized pustular psoriasis and the effect of withdrawal. Therefore, after discontinuation of such treatment, it is necessary to continue clinical monitoring of the patient.

During treatment with XAMIOLВ®, the patient is advised to limit or avoid excessive exposure to natural or artificial sunlight. Calcipotriol (and the preparations containing it) is allowed to be applied topically in combination with ultraviolet radiation only in cases where the attending physician considers the risk of unwanted side effects associated with such treatment justified.

XAMIOLВ® contains butylhydroxytoluene (E321), which can cause local skin reactions (e.g. contact dermatitis) or irritation of the eyes and mucous membranes.

To achieve an optimal therapeutic effect, it is not recommended to take a shower / bath or wash your hair (in the case of treatment of lesions of the scalp) immediately after using the drug.
