About Adapalene

What is adapalene?

Adapalene is a retinoid drug. Its helps decrease and heal acne breakouts by targeting the growth of cells and reducing inflammation. It comes as a gel or cream in 0.1% or 0.3% strengths. Your dermatologist can recommend the best form and strength for your particular skin condition.

How do I take adapalene?

Clean your face with a mild cleanser and pat dry before using the adapalene drug. Dab a small amount of the gel or cream onto your fingertips and gently rub onto the affected skin in a thin layer. You can also apply the medication using a cotton swab or gauze pad instead of your fingers. Most people who use this medication apply it once daily at bedtime, but defer to your dermatologist if he or she gives you different dosing instructions.

What if I forget to take a dose of adapalene?

Apply the missed dose of adapalene when you remember, unless it is almost time for another dose. If this is the case, skip the missed dose and continue with your usual dosing routine.

What happens if I overdose on adapalene?

Overdosing on adapalene through topical application is rare, but it can cause serious side effects if swallowed. If you or someone in your household has ingested this retinoid drug, call Poison Control at 1-800-222-1222.

Before taking adapalene, tell your doctor if:

  • You are allergic to adapalene or any other medications

  • You are taking any other prescription or non-prescription medications, especially harsh skin care products

  • You have or have ever had cancer or eczema

  • You are breastfeeding, pregnant, or may become pregnant

What are the possible side effects of taking adapalene?

As with many topical medications, it is possible for adapalene to cause some skin irritation. Common side effects include mild burning, itching, dryness, redness, or scaling. These side effects are most common in the first 2-4 weeks of treatment; tell your doctor if they persist or worsen after this time. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any of the following rare but serious side effects: an intense burning sensation, extremely irritated skin, eye redness and sensitivity, eyelid swelling, and skin discoloration.

How do I store adapalene?

Keep adapalene in its original container, tightly sealed and away from high heat and moisture. Store it out of reach of all pets and children. If you are no longer using the medication and need to get rid of it, ask your pharmacist about safe disposal methods.


The adapalene drug increases your skin’s sensitivity to sun and extreme weather, so avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight, cold, and wind. Wear sunglasses, sunscreen, and protective clothing when you do need to be outside for an extended period of time. If you normally use hot wax to remove unwanted body hair, you should stop for the duration of your adapalene treatment.
