How Should It Be Stored?

Acanya should be stored at room temperature, away from heat and moisture. Do not freeze it. Keep the container tightly closed when not in use. Throw out any unused portion 10 weeks after you fill your prescription. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children and pets.
 

What Should I Do If I Forget a Dose of Acanya?

If you forget to use a dose of Acanya, just use it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, however, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not apply extra medication to make up for a missed dose.
