Acne Home > Fabior Acne Medication
If you have acne, your healthcare provider may recommend a drug called Fabior® (tazarotene foam). This prescription foam is applied on the affected areas of the skin once daily in the evening. It is approved for use in adults and adolescents as young as 12 years old.
Fabior is chemically related to vitamin A. It is thought to work by suppressing inflammation and slowing down rapid skin cell growth. Although most people tolerate the medicine well, side effects are possible and may include skin irritation, dryness, and redness.
To help reduce the risk of problems while treating your acne with Fabior, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on any other medications you are taking and your medical history. Also, let him or her know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
