Melquin-3 Topical Solution (hydroquinone) is used to lighten areas of darkened skin such as freckles, age spots, chloasma, and melasma caused by pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone medicine, or injury to the skin. It decreases the formation of melanin in the skin. Melanin is the pigment in skin that gives it a brown color. This medication is available in generic form. Common side effects include mild burning, stinging, redness, and dryness.
The recommended dose of Melquin-3 Topical Solution is to apply to affected areas and rub in well twice daily, in the morning and before bedtime, or as directed by a physician. It is not likely other drugs you take orally or inject will have an effect on topically applied Melquin-3. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Melquin-3 should be used only when prescribed. It is unknown if this drug passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
