Evalen is used topically for the treatment of acne vulgaris.
Adapalene 1 mg
12 Years Old and Above
Evalen should be applied to affected areas of the skin, once daily in the evening before bedtime and after washing.
A thin film of Evalen should be applied, avoiding the eyes, lips, and mucous membranes. If product enters the eye, wash immediately with warm water. Ensure that the affected areas are dry before application.
During the early weeks of therapy with adapalene, an apparent exacerbation of acne may occur. This effect is attributable to the action of the drug on previously unseen lesions and should not be considered a reason to discontinue therapy.
Since it is customary to alternate therapies in the treatment of acne, it is recommended that the physician assess the continued improvement of the patient after three months of treatment with Evalen.
With patients for whom it is necessary to reduce the frequency of application or to temporarily discontinue treatment, frequency of application may be restored or therapy resumed once it is judged that the patient can again tolerate the treatment.
