4.1 Therapeutic indications
Treatment of moderate to severe acne related to androgen-sensitivity (with or without seborrhoea) and/or hirsutism, in women of reproductive age.
For the treatment of acne, Co-cyprindiol should only be used after topical therapy or systemic antibiotic treatments have failed.
Since Co-cyprindiol is also a hormonal contraceptive, it should not be used in combination with other hormonal contraceptives (see section 4.3).
