Clinical Information

Chemical Structure

Clinical Pharmacology

Guaifenesin is an expectorant, the action of which promotes or facilitates the removal of secretions from the respiratory tract. By increasing sputum volume and making sputum less viscous, guaifenesin facilitates expectoration of retained secretions.

Non-Clinical Toxicology
Hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients.

As adapalene cream has the potential to produce local irritation in some patients, concomitant use of other potentially irritating topical products (medicated or abrasive soaps and cleansers, soaps and cosmetics that have a strong drying effect, and products with high concentrations of alcohol, astringents, spices or lime rind) should be approached with caution. Particular caution should be exercised in using preparations containing sulfur, resorcinol, or salicylic acid in combination with adapalene cream. If these preparations have been used, it is advisable not to start therapy with adapalene cream until the effects of such preparations in the skin have subsided.
