IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Contraindications

Persons who have shown hypersensitivity to any of the tetracyclines or any other ingredient in ZILXI.

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.

Adverse Reactions

The most common adverse reaction reported during clinical trials of ZILXI was diarrhea.

Indications and Usage

ZILXI (minocycline) topical foam, 1.5% is a tetracycline-class drug indicated for the treatment of inflammatory lesions of rosacea in adults.
