Trioxasalen(25 mg)


Trioxsalen is used along with ultraviolet light in a treatment called psoralen plus ultraviolet light A (PUVA) to treat vitiligo (a disease in which skin color is lost). It may also be used to treat psoriasis (abnormal patches of red, itchy and scaly skin), for increasing tolerance to sunlight, or increasing color of the skin.

How it works

Trioxsalen belongs to the group of medicines called psoralens (light-sensitive drug that absorbs ultraviolet light and acts like ultraviolet radiation). Methoxsalen works by modifying the way by which skin cells receive the ultraviolet light A (UVA) radiation, thereby clearing up the disease.

Common side effects

Nervousness, Blisters on skin, Depression, Dizziness, Headache, Insomnia, Itching, Nausea, Skin redness, Sore skin, Swelling

Expert advice for TRIMOP

  • Trioxsalen is a very strong medicine that increases your skin sensitivity to sunlight. Do not use it for sun tanning or to increase tolerance to sunlight; if doing so, do not use trioxsalen for more than 14 days.
  • Take this treatment (trioxsalen and UVA) two or three times a week with the treatment spaced at least forty-eight hours apart.  
  • Take this medication by mouth with food or milk, usually 2 to 4 hours before your UVA light treatment.
  • Do not sunbathe for 24 hours before taking trioxsalen.  Wear UVA-absorbing, wrap-around sunglasses and cover exposed skin or use a sunblock (SP 15 or higher) for the twenty-four (24) hour period following treatment with trioxsalen.
  • Use extra caution for at least 48 hours following each treatment.  After each treatment, cover your skin for at least 8 hours by wearing protective clothing.
  • Do not increase the amount of trioxsalen if you are taking or spend extra time in the sunlight or under an ultraviolet lamp.
  • Do not drive or operate machinery as trioxsalen may cause dizziness.
  • You will need to have an eye examination before starting trioxsalen and also once a year thereafter.
  • Be careful before applying anything to your skin to treat dryness and itchiness caused by trioxsalen.
  • Tell your doctor if you are or planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
