Product Details

Description:

Chemical Name: TRETINOIN (TRET-i-noyn)

RETIN A CREAM is a vitamin A derivative used to treat acne. It may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor. It appears to increase skin-cell turnover and to reduce the tendency for skin cells to stick together. This reduces the formation of acne and allows quicker healing of acne that does develop. Many individuals use RETIN A CREAM as an effective anti aging cream.

For external use only.

Directions:

RETIN A CREAM should be used as exactly prescribed by your physician. Each patient may be prescribed a different amount, depending on their condition. It is important to closely follow the prescription label instructions for safe use. Do not take in excess amounts, or take it for longer than recommended.

  • for external use only
  • apply a thin layer of cream to the affected area and rub in gently
  • remove all cosmetics with a mild soap before applying. Gently dry the area. Wait 20-30 minutes to make sure that your skin is completely dry
  • wash your hands immediately after use
Remember, RETIN A CREAM will not work overnight. For optimal results, use on a regular basis. If you want to speed up the anti-aging process, always make healthy choices. Eat balanced meals, use sun block, exercise daily, quit drinking alcohol, and do not smoke.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use RETIN A CREAM.

Cautions:

It is important to discuss and be aware of any safety information before using RETIN A CREAM.

  • may cause you to become sunburned more easily. Avoid the sun, sunlamps, or tanning booths until you know how you react to RETIN A CREAM
  • your skin condition may appear to worsen the first 2-3 weeks of treatment; this is expected so do not stop using the cream
  • discuss the use of any other medicines or products on your skin, while using RETIN A CREAM, including cosmetics
  • do not apply to skin that is sunburned; wait until the burn is fully healed before using
  • do not use more than the recommended dose or use for longer than prescribed without consulting with your doctor
  • Avoid using other topical medication, cosmetics, or other products that have a strong drying effect
  • do not use for any condition other than that for which it was prescribed
  • extreme weather (windy or cold weather), may irritate your skin more during use
  • may cause harm if it is swallowed
If you become pregnant, contact your doctor. You will need to discuss the benefits and risks of using RETIN A CREAM while you are pregnant. It is not known if RETIN A CREAM is found in breast milk. If you are or will be breast-feeding while you use this cream, check with your doctor. Discuss any possible risks to your baby.

Only place to purchase!
I ordered RetinA 0.05 45 grams in generic form and received Stieva-A. I actually like this stuff better than the name brand. It is a lot more runny and easier to apply on the face. The ordering process is a bit of a process, order, fax, and then mail original prescription to them. Payment can only be made by check, not by credit card. Payment process took one month to clear the bank. Still very happy with my purchase and will continue to purchase meds that aren't covered in my USA plan. As a example of my purchase, WalMart charges 130.00 for a 45gram tube of RetinA, I purchased it for 40.00. That's a ridiculous amount of savings!

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

We believe that no one can better express the high level of customer service offered at Canada Pharmacy than our own customers.

See what they have to say - trust the people who have already discovered why Canada Pharmacy, the largest online Canadian pharmacy is indeed the healthy choice for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
