Adapalene Lotion Dosage and Administration
Apply a thin layer of Adapalene Lotion to the entire face and other affected areas of the skin once daily, after washing gently with a mild soapless cleanser. Dispense a nickel size amount of Adapalene Lotion (3-4 actuations of the pump) to cover the entire face. Avoid application to the areas of skin around eyes, lips and mucous membranes.
Adapalene Lotion is for topical use only and not for oral, ophthalmic, or intravaginal use.
Concomitant Topical Medications
Concomitant topical acne therapy should be used with caution because a possible cumulative irritancy effect may occur, especially with the use of peeling, desquamating, or abrasive agents. Caution should be exercised in using preparation containing sulfur, resorcinol or salicylic acid in combination with Adapalene Lotion.
No formal drug-drug interaction studies were conducted with Adapalene Lotion.

Each gram of Adapalene Lotion contains 1 mg of adapalene.

The safety and efficacy of Adapalene Lotion applied once daily for the treatment of acne vulgaris were assessed in two 12-week, multicenter, controlled clinical trials of similar design, comparing Adapalene Lotion to the lotion vehicle in acne subjects.
In Trial 1, 1075 subjects were randomized to Adapalene Lotion or vehicle. The median age of these subjects was 16.7 years old and 53.1% were females. At baseline subjects had between 20 to 50 inflammatory lesions and 30 to 100 non-inflammatory lesions. The majority of subjects (91.0%) had a baseline IGA score of ‘Moderate’. In Trial 2, 1066 subjects were randomized to Adapalene Lotion or vehicle.
The median age of subjects was 16.7 years old and 53.7% were females. At baseline subjects had the same inclusion criteria as in Trial 1 and 95.7% of subjects had a baseline IGA score of ‘Moderate’. The outcome of the two trials is presented in Table 3.
