Pregnancy & Lactation
There are no well-controlled trials in pregnant women treated with Adapalene and Benzoyl peroxide. Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with the combination gel or Benzoyl peroxide. Furthermore, such studies are not always predictive of human response; therefore, this preparation should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the risk to the fetus. It is not known whether Adapalene or Benzoyl peroxide is excreted in human milk following use. Caution should be exercised when administered to a nursing woman.
