Description

This product is used to treat moderate acne. It helps to reduce the number of pimples. This medication is a combination of 2 drugs. Erythromycin works by stopping the growth of acne-causing bacteria. It belongs to a class of drugs known as macrolide antibiotics. Benzoyl peroxide also kills acne-causing bacteria and causes the top layer of skin to dry and peel off so that new skin can form. This product also contains alcohol which helps to dry extra oils from the skin.

Read the instructions for use that come with this product. This medication is for use only on the skin.

Before applying, wash the affected areas thoroughly, rinse with warm water, then gently pat dry. Apply a thin layer of this medication as directed by your doctor, usually twice daily (in the morning and in the evening).

If you are using the individual pouches, you must first mix the 2 medications from the separate compartments of each pouch. Mix the contents thoroughly in the palm of your hand. Apply the product immediately after mixing.

Wash your hands after using medication. Avoid getting this medication in your eyes or inside your nose, mouth, or other mucous membranes. If this occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. Do not mix or apply medication near an open flame.

Benzoyl peroxide may bleach hair or colored fabrics (such as clothing, bedding, towels). Use caution when applying this medication near the hairline.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. Do not apply large amounts of this medication, use it more often, or use it for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects may increase.

Acne usually improves after a few weeks of treatment. However, it may take 2 to 3 months of continued use to notice the full benefit of this product. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.

Cautions

Before using this product, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to erythromycin or benzoyl peroxide; or to other macrolide antibiotics (such as azithromycin, clarithromycin); or if you have any other allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details.

Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history.

This medication may make you more sensitive to the sun. Limit your time in the sun. Avoid tanning booths and sunlamps. Use sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors. Tell your doctor right away if you get sunburned or have skin blisters/redness.

Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products).

During pregnancy, this medication should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor.

It is unknown if this drug passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

Side Effects

Mild dryness and mild peeling of the top layer of skin is expected. Skin irritation, itching, burning, or redness may occur, especially at the start of treatment as your body adjusts to the medication. Eye irritation and skin discoloration may also occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, stop using this product and tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

Rarely, use of this medication for prolonged or repeated periods may result in other types of skin infections (such as fungal infections). Contact your doctor if you notice any unusual skin symptoms or if your condition does not improve.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, seek immediate medical attention if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.

This is not a complete list of possible side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Everything about this order was easy. Canadian Med Pharmacy called me per a previously set-up reminder; the order was verbally confirmed, as well as my payment method and the information was verified. I was notified when the order was placed, as well as when the order was shipped. At that point, I requested a statement for my medical and tax records, and it was promptly emailed to me.
