Important Safety Information

  • FABIOR Foam is contraindicated in pregnancy. FABIOR Foam may cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman. If this drug is used during pregnancy, or if the patient becomes pregnant while taking this drug, treatment should be discontinued and the patient apprised of the potential hazard to the fetus. Females of child-bearing potential should be warned of the potential risk and use of adequate birth-control measures when tazarotene foam is used. The possibility of pregnancy should be considered in females of child-bearing potential at the time of institution of therapy.
  • FABIOR Foam should be used with caution in patients with history of local tolerability reactions or local hypersensitivity.
  • The propellant in FABIOR Foam is flammable. Instruct the patient to avoid fire, flame, and/or smoking during and immediately following application.
  • Because of heightened burning susceptibility, exposure to sunlight (including sunlamps) should be avoided when using FABIOR Foam. Patients must be warned to use sunscreens and protective clothing. Patients with sunburn should be advised not to use FABIOR Foam 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. FABIOR Foam should be used with caution in patients with a personal or family history of skin cancer or if the patient is also taking drugs known to be photosensitizers.
  • FABIOR Foam may cause skin redness, peeling, burning, or excessive pruritus. Concomitant topical acne therapy should be used with caution because a cumulative irritant effect may occur. If skin irritation occurs, therapy with FABIOR Foam should be reduced to an interval the patient can tolerate, temporarily interrupted, or discontinued. In addition, dermatologic medications and cosmetics that have a strong drying effect should be avoided
  • Retinoids should not be used on abraded or eczematous skin, as they may cause severe irritation. Contact with the mouth, eyes, and mucous membranes should be avoided. Weather extremes, such as wind or cold, may be more irritating to patients using FABIOR Foam. Excessive topical application of FABIOR Foam may lead to marked redness, peeling, or discomfort.
