Excex Gel is a combination of two medicines: Adapalene Topical and Clindamycin Topical which treat pimples (acne). Adapalene Topical 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 Topical is an antibiotic which works by penetrating into the skin and killing acne-causing bacteria.
Excex 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.
Excex Gel is probably safe to use during lactation.
Limited human data suggests that the drug does not represent a significant risk to the baby.
