General Information on Using AdapaleneSome considerations to keep in mind while using adapalene include the following:
- Apply this medication once daily to the affected areas in the evening just before bedtime. Use only a thin layer.
- Wash your face and/or other affected areas with a mild, soap-free cleanser before applying adapalene.
- Do not apply more than a small amount; using a large amount of this medicine increases the risk of skin irritation without increasing effectiveness.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
- If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or adapalene dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist.
