Generic name: MINOCYCLINE HYDROCHLORIDE 40mg in 1g
Dosage form: aerosol, foam
For topical use only, not for oral, ophthalmic or intravaginal use [see Clinical Studies (14)].
After shaking the can well, a small amount of topical foam (e.g. a cherry-sized amount) should be expressed from the can onto the fingertips of the hand and then rubbed into acne-affected parts of the face. This should be repeated as needed until all acne-affected parts of the face are treated. If acne is present on other parts of the patient’s body (neck, shoulders, arms, back or chest), additional amounts of topical foam should also be applied to these areas. The topical foam should be applied at approximately the same time each day at least 1 hour before bedtime. The patient should not bathe, shower or swim for at least 1 hour after application of the product.
