How Often Should Metrogel Be Used?
When using Metrogel® (metronidazole gel) to treat rosacea, it's important to know how often the medicine should be used. Metrogel dosing instructions will depend on which strength of the medicine you are using.
Metrogel 1% gel is only available in brand-name form, and is applied to the affected areas of skin once daily. It is usually recommended to apply it in the evening after cleansing your face. Make sure to apply the gel to the entire area, every day.
There is also a 0.75% formulation (available in generic form only), which is applied to the skin twice a day. When using this product, it is usually recommended to apply the gel once in the morning and once in the evening. Apply the gel after cleansing your face, but before applying any cosmetics.
