Azelex Drug Interactions
Azelex® (azelaic acid cream) is a prescription acne medication that is applied to the skin. Significant drug interactions between Azelex and other medications are unlikely.
Although Azelex is typically gentle, it can be irritating to the skin for some people, especially at first (see Azelex Side Effects). Use caution when combining Azelex with other skin medications or products that are irritating to the skin, as this could worsen any irritation.
In fact, you may have to temporarily stop using some skin products during treatment with Azelex, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other skin products you might be using, including sunscreen, cleansers, moisturizers, cosmetics, and so on.
Although Azelex is unlikely to react seriously with other medications, there could be currently unknown drug interactions that have yet to be discovered. Therefore, check with your healthcare provider about any possible interactions that may apply to you.
