Clinical pharmacology :-
Adapalene is a retinoid-like compound that is chemically stabilized. Pharmacological and Biochemical profile studies have showed that adapalene is a soother of cellular distinction, keratinization, and inflammatory activities all of which stand for important properties in the pathology of acne vulgaris. Mechanistically, adapalene binds to special retinoic acid nuclear structures but does not get delimited to the cytosolic receptor protein. Although the perfect manner of action of adapalene is unspecific, it is recommended that topical adapalene may change the differentiation of vesicle epithelial cells consequent in reduced microcomedone formation.
Drug interactions :-
As Adapalene has the power to make local vexation in some patients, attendant usages of some other potentially irritating topical medicines (medicated or abrasive soaps and cleansers, soaps and cosmetics that have a strong drying effect, and products with high concentrations of alcohol, astringents, spices, or lime) should be approached with caution. Particular caution should be exercised in using preparations containing sulfur, resorcinol, or salicylic acid in combination with adapalene. If these formulations have been utilized, it is recommended not to start therapy with adapalene until the effects of such compounds in the skin have lessened.
Adverse reactions :-
Some harmful effects such as scaling, dryness, itchiness, erythema, and burning will happen in 10-40% of patients. Itching or burning instantly after application also passes in just about 20% of patients. The following adverse experiences were noticed in just about 1% or less of patients:
These are most usually perceived during the first month of treatment and decreased in frequency and intensiveness thereafter. All inauspicious effects with the usages of adapalene during clinical proceedings were correctable upon discontinuance of therapy.
Over dosage :-
Adapalene is supposed for cutaneous usage only. If the medication is applied overly, no more fast or amended results will be acquired and marked inflammation, peeling, or soreness may occur. The chronic oral toxicity of this products in rats and mice is greater than 10 mL/kg. Chronic intake of the medicate may lead to the selfsame side effects as those related with inordinate oral ingestion of Vitamin A.
Administration and Dosages :-
The Adapalene gel 0.1% should be applied one time in a day to affected fields after the evening wash before retiring. A thin film of the gelatin should be applied by avoiding lips, eyes and mucous membranes. During the initial weeks of therapy, an evident exacerbation of acne may happen.

Curative results should be observed after eight to twelve weeks of medication.
