Lymecycline 408mg capsules and Epiduo Gel


How to take lymecycline 408mg capsules and use Epiduo gel

You need to take 1 lymecycline 408mg capsule at the same time each day. Swallow your lymecycline 408mg capsule whole with a glass of water.

Epiduo gel should be used once a day, preferably before going to bed. Clean and dry your face first, then apply a thin layer to the affected areas. Epiduo should be applied thinly over all the areas of skin that have acne, not just the spots themselves. Avoid getting any Epiduo gel in your mouth, eyes, nostrils or on any cuts and scrapes. Wash your hands thoroughly after you use Epiduo gel.

When you start using lymecycline and Epiduo, wear sunscreen during the day and avoid sunlamps or sunbeds to protect your skin.

Contact your doctor if your skin feels sore or irritated after using Epiduo gel. You may need to use Epiduo gel less often to start with to prevent irritation. If you use more Epiduo gel than you should, you’re more likely to experience side effects like skin irritation and redness.

It can take 6-8 weeks to start to see an improvement from this combination of treatment.
