Tretinoin Microsphere Gel

What is tretinoin gel?

Clindamycin is an antibiotic. It fights bacteria in the body.

Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A. It reduces the amount of oil released by oil glands in your skin, and helps your skin renew itself more quickly.

Clindamycin and tretinoin is a combination medicine used to treat severe nodular acne in adults and children who are at least 12 years old.

Clindamycin and tretinoin topical may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this medication guide.

Tretinoin Side Effects

Like all medications, tretinoin has some side effects. In general, tretinoin is a safe and effective medication. However, some users experience side effects ranging from minor skin irritation that goes away with long-term use to more severe adverse effects.

The most common side effect of tretinoin use is a warm, stinging sensation in the skin directly after the medication is applied. This is often accompanied by dry and itchy skin, skin redness, mild scaling and a slight burning sensation.

Tretinoin can also potentially make your acne get worse before it gets better -- a phenomenon known as a “purge” that we’ve covered in greater detail. Usually, the “purge” is temporary and goes away after two to four weeks of tretinoin use.

Many of these minor side effects resolve on their own, while others are easily fixed by using a moisturizer or other skincare products to counter the dryness produced by tretinoin.

More serious side effects of tretinoin include facial swelling and burning, conjunctivitis, swelling of the eyelids, skin discoloration and blisters. These side effects are uncommon and should be treated immediately by a medical professional.

Precautions

During the first 3 weeks you are using tretinoin, your skin may become irritated. Also, your acne may seem to get worse before it gets better. It may take longer than 12 weeks before you notice full improvement of your acne, even if you use the medicine every day. Check with your health care professional at any time skin irritation becomes severe or if your acne does not improve within 8 to 12 weeks.

You should avoid washing the skin treated with tretinoin for at least 1 hour after applying it.

Avoid using any topical medicine on the same area within 1 hour before or after using tretinoin. Otherwise, tretinoin may not work properly or skin irritation might occur.

Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, it is especially important to avoid using the following skin products on the same area as tretinoin:

  • Any other topical acne product or skin product containing a peeling agent (such as benzoyl peroxide, resorcinol, salicylic acid, or sulfur)
  • Hair products that are irritating, such as permanents or hair removal products

Dosage And Administration

retin-a gel, Cream or Liquid should be applied once a day, before retiring, to the skin where acne lesions appear, using enough to cover the entire affected area lightly. Liquid: The liquid may be applied using a fingertip, gauze pad, or cotton swab. If gauze or cotton is employed, care should be taken not to oversaturate it to the extent that the liquid would run into areas where treatment is not intended. Gel: Excessive application results in “pilling” of the gel, which minimizes the likelihood of over application by the patient. Application may cause a transitory feeling of warmth or slight stinging.

Alterations of vehicle, drug concentration, or dose frequency should be closely monitored by careful observation of the clinical therapeutic response and skin tolerance.
