|About Epiduo Gel|
Epiduo Gel combines two active ingredients, adapalene and benzoyl peroxide, which work together but in different ways. Adapalene belongs to a group of products known as retinoids and acts specifically on the skin processes that cause acne. The other active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, works as an antimicrobial agent and by softening and peeling the outer layer of the skin.
Do not use Epiduo Gel if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to adapalene, benzoyl peroxide or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet.
|Pregnancy and Breastfeeding||
Epiduo should not be used during pregnancy. Epiduo can be used during breastfeeding. To avoid contact exposure of the infant, application of Epiduo to the chest must be avoided. Always ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine.
You must tell your doctor if you are taking, have recently taken or might take other medicines, in particular:
All medication can cause side effects. We have only listed a few to be aware of. Details of all side effects, including rare side effects to be aware of, are listed in the patient information leaflet (PIL).
