Epiduo Forte (Benzoyl Peroxide with Adapalene) Gel
Epiduo® Forte (adapalene and benzoyl peroxide) Gel, 0.3%/2.5% is a once-a-day prescription medication, with two powerful medicines that treat tough acne now and helps prevent recurring acne from forming by unclogging pores and killing bacteria.
It contains the highest concentration of the retinoid adapalene to reduce the inflammation associated with moderate to severe acne. If left untreated, inflammatory acne can lead to permanent scarring.
Epiduo Forte Gel is a topical acne medication that can be part of your acne skin care regimen. It is antibiotic-free and comes in a convenient, easy-to-use pump. In clinical trials, many patients with hard-to-treat acne saw their breakouts visibly improve and continue to get better with regular treatment.
As with all acne treatments, some patients may experience side effects such as dryness, burning, and stinging. Please see the Important Safety Information below or the Full Prescribing Information for more details. Talk to your dermatologist to see if Epiduo Forte Gel could be right for you.
