We do not supply any medication without a prescription. Only your doctor or healthcare provider may prescribe Soriatane or any other medication. If you have questions about your Soriatane prescription, consult the product information or speak to your doctor.
Soriatane treats psoriasis and other major skin disorders. If you know or suspect you are sensitive to vitamin A, Soriatane might not be right for you. Do not take more or less than the prescribed dosage. While taking Soriatane, avoid non-medical ultraviolet light. Do not take dietary supplements that contain vitamin A, as an excess in your system may cause adverse side effects.
Before taking Soriatane, speak to your doctor if you have or ever had:
- Liver problems
- Kidney problems
- High cholesterol or high triglycerides (fat in the blood)
- Heart disease
- Diabetes or high blood sugar
- An allergic reaction to a medication
Your doctor needs this information to decide if Soriatane is right for you and to know what dose is best for you.
Important Soriatane Safety Information

Soriatane may cause serious birth defects and should not be taken for three years before getting pregnant. Do not get pregnant while taking Soriatane. Speak to your doctor or read the product literature to find out more information. If you are taking Soriatane, do not donate blood and for three years after stopping taking Soriatane as it might cause a birth defect if your blood is donated to a pregnant woman.

This is not a full list of side effects. Consult the product literature for a full list of side effects or speak to your health care provider. According to the official website, Soriatane can cause serious side effects:
Stop taking Soriatane and call your prescriber right away if you get the following signs or symptoms of possible serious side effects:
- Aches or pains in your bones, joints, muscles, or back; trouble moving; loss of feeling in your hands or feet. These can be signs of abnormal changes to your bones or muscles.
- Shortness of breath, dizziness, nausea, chest pain, weakness, trouble speaking, or swelling of a leg. These may be signs of a heart attack, blood clots, or stroke. Soriatane can cause serious changes in blood fats (lipids). It is possible for these changes to cause blood vessel blockages that lead to heart attacks, strokes, or blood clots.
- Vision problems. Decreased vision in the dark (night blindness). Since this can start suddenly, you should be very careful when driving at night. Stop taking Soriatane and call your prescriber if you develop any vision problems or eye pain.
- Abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting. These may be signs of pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas).
- Bad headaches, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision. These can be signs of increased brain pressure that can lead to blindness or even death.
- Depression and other mental health problems. There have been some reports of patients developing mental problems including a depressed mood, aggressive feelings, or thoughts of ending their own life (suicide). It is very important to stop taking Soriatane and call your prescriber right away if you develop such problems.
- Visual changes, frequent urination, great thirst, or hunger. These can be signs of high blood sugar.

- Chapped lips; peeling fingertips, palms, and soles; itching; scaly skin all over; weak nails; sticky or fragile (weak) skin; runny or dry nose, or nosebleeds. Your prescriber or pharmacist can recommend a lotion or cream to help treat drying or chapping.
- Dry mouth
- Joint pain
- Tight muscles
- Hair loss. Most patients have some hair loss, but this condition varies among patients. No one can tell if you will lose hair, how much hair you may lose, or if and when it may grow back. You may also lose your eyelashes.
- Dry eyes. Soriatane may dry your eyes. Wearing contact lenses may be uncomfortable during and after treatment with Soriatane because of the dry feeling in your eyes. If this happens, remove your contact lenses and call your prescriber.
- Rise in blood fats (lipids). Soriatane can cause your blood fats (lipids) to rise. Most of the time this is not serious. But sometimes the increase can become a serious problem (see information under "Serious side effects"). You should have blood tests as directed by your prescriber.
Psoriasis gets worse for some patients when they first start treatment with Soriatane. Some patients have more redness or itching. If this happens, tell your prescriber.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
