CLINDAP GEL is a combination of two medicines: Adapalene and Clindamycin which treat pimples (acne). Adapalene is a form of vitamin A which prevents accumulation of the sebum (skin’s natural oil), unblocks the pores and allows natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin. Clindamycin is an antibiotic which works by penetrating into the skin and killing acne-causing bacteria.
CLINDAP GEL may be unsafe to use during pregnancy. Animal studies have shown adverse effects on the foetus, however, there are limited human studies. The benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk. Please consult your doctor.
CLINDAP GEL is probably safe to use during lactation.
Limited human data suggests that the drug does not represent a significant risk to the baby.
