PRECAUTIONS
Adapalene should not be applied to skin with cuts, abrasions, eczema, or sunburn.

Patients should minimize exposure to sunlight, including sunlamps, and use sunscreens and other protection whenever prolonged exposure is unavoidable. Therapy should be discontinued if sunburn develops, and not resumed until the skin fully recovers. Patients may also have a heightened susceptibility to irritation due to weather extremes (wind or cold).

Adapalene may cause erythema, dryness, scaling, burning, and itching, which usually begin the first 2 to 4 weeks of therapy but diminish with continued use. Patients who develop excessive irritation should use the medication less frequently, interrupt treatment briefly, or discontinue use totally.

Adapalene therapy may render the skin more vulnerable to the irritating effects of astringents, abrasive soaps, skin cleansers, and other facial chemicals and cosmetics that contain alcohol or have a strong drying effect. Concomitant use of these agents with adapalene should be approached with caution. Products containing alpha hydroxy or glycolic acids should be avoided.

Adapalene should not be used around the eyes, mouth, angles of the nose, mucous membranes, or on cut, abraded, or eczematous skin. Contact with the eye may cause an ocular reaction such as swelling, conjunctivitis, and irritation.

Wax epilation should not be performed on adapalene-treated skin.

Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients under the age of 12 years has not been established.
