Frequency: Metrogel vs Metrolotion

Another frequent concern pertains to the frequency with which Metrogel should be applied.

Please note that unlike the original metronidazole formulation (Metrolotion) available from Galderma, Metrogel is — with few exceptions — only used once daily.

Broadly speaking, patients experience superior results when Metrogel is used PM rather than AM.

However it is also true that patients' rosacea will worsen more during the day than overnight, whether they are using Metrogel or not, therefore it is not possible to say to what extent evening use is more beneficial, just that the finding is related.

Using Metrogel once daily in the evening has the added benefit of speeding up skin care in the morning.
