Treatment of moderate to severe acne due to androgen sensitivity (with or without seborrhoea) and/or hirsutism in women of childbearing age.
Diane-35 should be used only after the failure of topical therapy or systemic antibiotic treatments for acne therapy.
As Diane-35 is also a hormonal contraceptive, it must not be used in combination with other hormonal contraceptives (see Contraindications).
Although this product also acts as an oral contraceptive, it should not be used in women solely for contraception, but should be reserved for those women requiring treatment for androgen-dependent conditions only, i.e. moderately severe hirsutism and severe acne.
