What Is Adapalene?

Adapalene is a topical retinoid medication prescribed by doctors and dermatologists for the treatment of acne. It has been around for over 20 years and over 40 million people around the world have used Adapalene.

The good news for people with acne-prone skin is that the United States Food and Drug Administration recently approved Adapalene Gel 0.1% for over-the-counter acne treatments. That means you no longer have to bear the expense of doctor visits to enjoy all the proven benefits of Adapalene.

When the announcement was made, the FDA stated, “Millions of consumers, from adolescents to adults, suffer from acne. Now consumers have access to a new, safe and effective over-the-counter option.”

Uses

This medication is used to treat acne. It may decrease the number and severity of acne pimples and promote quick healing of pimples that do develop. Adapalene belongs to a class of medications called retinoids. It works by affecting the growth of cells and decreasing swelling and inflammation.

How should this medicine be used?

Prescription adapalene comes as a gel, a solution (liquid), and a cream to apply to the skin. The solution comes in a glass bottle with an applicator and as individual pledgets (medicated wipes for one time use). Nonprescription (over the counter) adapalene comes as a gel to apply to the skin. Adapalene is usually applied once a day at bedtime. Follow the directions on your prescription label or the package label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Apply adapalene exactly as directed. Do not apply more or less of it or apply it more often than prescribed by your doctor or stated on the package. Applying more adapalene or applying adaplene more often than recommended will not speed up or improve results, but it may irritate your skin.

Do not apply adapalene to skin that is sunburned, broken, or covered with eczema (a skin disease). If you have any of these conditions, do not apply adapalene until your skin has healed.

Be careful not to get adapalene in your eyes, nose, or mouth. If you do get adapalene in your eyes, wash them with plenty of water and call your doctor. Your eyes may become irritated, swollen, or infected.
