Finacea once a day being trialled

Finacea is officially prescribed to be used twice per day. A new Clinical Trial is underway to compare the the application of Finacea twice a day and once per day.

A Multicenter Trial to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of a Topical Medication for Papulopustular Rosacea Applied Twice Daily Versus Once Daily

The trial is listed as using the drug azelaic acid, which is the active ingredient in Finacea.

The study is currently recruiting patients. It is not clear where the trial will take place as the web site is for the FDA, but all contact information is from Germany.

    Hello im a first timer on these forums, but I decided to try them out due to my present circumstances. I have had rosacea for 1 1/2 yrs and I am only 20 yrs old. I was automatically put on metrogel which did nothing and then prescribed Finacea and doryx which helped clear up the breakouts immediately. The finacea seems to work well for me once a day but in accordance with the doryx. The breakouts are usually only on my cheeks, nose, and forehead, but now my whole face is breaking out and I can’t seem to get it under control. Any ideas?
