Mequinol / tretinoin topical is also known as: Solage

Mequinol / tretinoin topical Pregnancy Warnings

Mequinol-tretinoin topical has been assigned to pregnancy category X by the FDA. Dermal carcinogenicity studies in mice using approximately five times the maximum human exposure indicated that mequinol-tretinoin topical was not carcinogenic. However, the median time to onset of tumors decreased and the number of tumors increased with intercurrent exposure to ultraviolet radiation for up to 40 weeks. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Mequinol-tretinoin topical is contraindicated in pregnancy because the potential risk for treating solar lentigines clearly outweighs any benefit.
