Patient should dispense a small amount of Zilxi on their fingertip.

APPLY

Have patient gently rub Zilxi onto the entire face. Use as part of a routine at approximately the same time each day.

WAIT

Patients should not bathe, shower, or swim for at least 1 hour after application.

Zilxi should be applied at approximately the same time each day, preferably in the evening at least 1 hour before bedtime.

APPLICATION CONSIDERATIONS

There are a few application considerations when using Zilxi

Due to the yellow tint of Zilxi, patients may experience a temporary, slight yellow sheen on the skin after application. This yellow sheen is not permanent and is not staining of the skin. It may be washed off with soap and water after waiting at least 1 hour.

Zilxi may discolor or stain light-colored fabrics. Applying Zilxi as part of a pre-bedtime routine may help to alleviate practical concerns associated with discoloration of fabrics.

There is no clinical significance to qualitative survey findings.

Over 60% of patients were satisfied or very satisfied.

Patients were asked to describe their level of satisfaction based on a 5-point categorical scale from “very dissatisfied” to “very satisfied.” “Had some level of satisfaction” includes “somewhat satisfied” + “satisfied” + “very satisfied.”

Warnings and Precautions

Flammability: The propellant in ZILXI is flammable. Instruct the patient to avoid fire, flame, and smoking during and immediately following application.

ZILXI is a topical foam. While systemic absorption of ZILXI is low, and serious adverse reactions were not seen in clinical studies, the following adverse reactions associated with oral minocycline should be considered:

  • Teratogenic effects, inhibition of bone growth & permanent tooth discoloration: Use during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, infancy and childhood up to the age of 8 years may cause permanent discoloration of the teeth (yellow-gray-brown) and reversible inhibition of bone growth.
  • Clostridioides difficile associated diarrhea (CDAD): If CDAD occurs, discontinue ZILXI.
  • Hepatotoxicity & metabolic effects: If renal impairment exists or if liver injury suspected, discontinue ZILXI.
  • Central nervous system effects: Patients experiencing light-headedness, dizziness or vertigo should be cautioned about driving vehicles or operating heavy machinery.
  • Intracranial hypertension: Clinical manifestations include headache, blurred vision, diplopia, and vision loss. Discontinue ZILXI immediately if symptoms occur.
  • Autoimmune syndromes: Symptoms may be manifested by fever, rash, arthralgia, and malaise. Discontinue ZILXI immediately if symptoms occur.
  • Photosensitivity: Patients should minimize or avoid exposure to natural or artificial sunlight while using ZILXI. Advise patients to discontinue treatment with ZILXI at the first evidence of sunburn.
  • Hypersensitivity reactions: Discontinue ZILXI immediately if symptoms of anaphylaxis, serious skin reactions, erythema multiforme, and drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome occur.
  • Tissue hyperpigmentation: Discoloration of organs, including nails, bone, skin, eyes, thyroid, visceral tissue, oral cavity (teeth, mucosa, alveolar bone), sclerae and heart valves.
  • Superinfection: Overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms, including fungi. If superinfection occurs, discontinue ZILXI and institute appropriate therapy.
