What Is Zenatane Used For?

Is It Safe for Children to Use Zenatane?

Zenatane is approved for use in children as young as 12 years old, although there is some concern that it may cause thinning of the bones, which could lead to osteoporosis, when used in children or teens. Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using this medication in children.
 

What About Off-Label Zenatane Uses?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this medicine for something other than acne treatment. This is known as an "off-label" use. Zenatane is sometimes used off-label as chemotherapy to treat certain types of cancer. Using Zenatane for milder cases of acne is also an off-label use.
