ADAPALENE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

Differin (adapalene) for Acne: “So I wanted to try this because it was once a prescription medicine and I wasn’t having any luck with other OTC brands. I read reviews and thought “oh it can’t be THAT bad” (with the side effects) but let me tell you I was WRONG. Day one isn’t bad, day 2 a breeze but by day 4/5 my face was raw and super dry as anything. My skin has never flaked in my life & I looked like a man with a beard. Anything including extremely sensitive lotion BURNED my face. Even tears burned the hell out of my face. The drug works quickly and It does work getting rid of blemishes. In my opinion the side effects isn’t worth it to me. I stopped applying the drug to me face and I’m unsure whether I’ll start up again in a few days. My face needs a rest!”

For Acne: “This treatment has worked very well for me! I started to see results after 3 weeks. My skin felt smooth, but acne didn’t improve until about 5-6 weeks in. I’d say it’s definitely worth a try if your on the fence about it! I use 0.1% adapalene.”

Differin (adapalene) for Acne: “I am passing my second full week of using Differin. I am 64 years old and have always had some type of breakout issue, clogged pores and some enlarged pores for as long as I can remember. My skin was relatively wrinkle free prior to using. Anyway, the clogged pores on my chin are much improved as are the bumps on my forehead. The pores on my nose are greatly diminished. The slight wrinkles I had are just about gone as the retinoid also provides a gradual skin peel. I am anxious to see final results after 12 weeks of use. I think I will probably use it 3 days per week thereafter. Just remember to moisturize and use sunscreen!I’m also curious if this product can be used on the under eye area. Anyone have an answer on that one?”

For Acne: “It’s been 4 weeks now and my pimples still exist. My dermatologist prescribed Differen adapalene cream 0.1%. The effects makes me feel embarrassed. My sister said that this is the worst acne I have since I had my breakouts last year. The redness of pimples is there. And I don’t have any idea what makes it look like this. I should switch a soap maybe. The doctor provided me with her own made acne soap and I am not sure if I am allergic with this or just the side effect of the cream. My face now looks like a monster. But still I am hoping to the reviews I’ve read that this product need some patience before getting the best results. Anyways, I will going to see my doctor again next week. Looking forward to the effect of this expensive medicine.”
