Clobex Generic Name
Clobex® (clobetasol propionate) is a brand-name drug that is approved to treat inflammation and itching due to a wide variety of skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and allergic reactions. Although many people refer to its active ingredient, clobetasol propionate, as the "generic name" for Clobex, this is not the same thing as a generic version. Clobex is currently protected from generic competition by patents, the first of which is not set to expire until 2017 at the earliest.
