I am an African American female and have used this product (prescribed by my Dermatologist for about 4 yrs). It works, but I find that especially during the summer, my face and neck are darker than the rest of my body. I do wear a sunscreen (SPF 15 or more) but it doesn't seem to be helping.
No - darkening of the skin is not a reported side effect.
Have a chat with your dermatologist at your next visit.
