Does ACZONE gel interact with other drugs?
While this isn’t always the case, Aczone gel can interact negatively with medication. It just depends on the medication. For instance, if you are using sulfa drugs, Tylenol, nitroglycerin, other nitrite heart medications, or seizure medication, you could end up with the medical condition methemoglobinemia. This condition lowers the amount of oxygen in your bloodstream, potentially causing your lips, fingernails, or the inside of your mouth to turn blue or gray. If you experience this, stop taking your medication and call your doctor immediately.
Other potential negative interactions Aczone gel might have may involve prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and herbal products.
For more information on this, talk to your doctor.
Who can take this medication?
Right now, Aczone gel is restricted to a certain age of people. So anyone younger than 12 years of age are not allowed to use it.
Can it be taken during pregnancy?
You’re better off avoiding Aczone gel until after pregnancy. Unfortunately, it isn’t known whether the gel will harm an unborn baby. But research indicates that the gel can be absorbed into breast milk, potentially harming a nursing baby.
What should be done if there’s no visible improvement?
If you’ve taken Aczone gel for 12 weeks or longer and have seen no improvement, call your doctor. You may need to take a different medication.
