Why Epiduo Forte Gel?

What is Epiduo Forte Gel?

Epiduo® Forte (adapalene and benzoyl peroxide) Gel, 0.3%/2.5% is a once-a-day prescription medication, with two powerful ingredients that treat tough acne now and helps prevent recurring acne from forming by unclogging pores and killing bacteria. Epiduo Forte Gel treats tough acne now and reduces inflammatory lesions (blemishes), and reduces the risk of acne scars.

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 foundation 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 doctor to see if Epiduo Forte Gel could be the right solution for you.
