Wynzora is a prescription drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat plaque psoriasis in people ages 18 and older. Wynzora is a combination drug composed of Calcipotriene and Betamethasone dipropionate.
Betamethasone dipropionate is a high-potency corticosteroid. It is believed that Betamethasone dipropionate works in cases of psoriasis by suppressing immune system activity.
