A clinical research company has posted a large clinical trial to compare a Metronidazole 1% Gel to Galderma’s Metrogel 1%.
The multi center trial is looking for 947 participants across the US.
The manufacturer of the comparison Metronidazole 1% Gel is not mentioned, but a reasonable guess would be Metronidazole Gel from Sandoz.
Generic Metronidazole 1% is available in the US from Sandoz, but scant reviews are available online.
This is good news for rosacea sufferers looking and hoping for a more affordable Metronidazole 1% Gel.
