In brief: Probably OK
Adapalene is a topical acne medication that is a category c drug for pregnancy.
There a few animal studies indicating a potential problem but no controlled animal or human studies showing a problem. Topical acne meds are generally in this category and in my practice we don't restrict their usage for severe acne.
