Tazarotene

Like other retinoids, tazarotene (Tazorac) acts by binding to RARs and altering gene expression. Tazarotene appears to be particularly selective for the retinoid receptors RAR-p and RAR-^,but the clinical significance of this observation is unknown.

In the United States, tazarotene has been approved for topical treatment of psoriasis (involving up to 20% body surface area) and mild to moderate facial acne. Application site burning, stinging, and desquamation are common side effects, especially with acne. Tazarotene is contraindicated in women who are pregnant.
