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.

    Description

    Stieve A cream is a prescription acne treatment medication that is effective for getting rid of acne. The primary ingredient in this medicated acne cream is Tretinoin, and it works to promote skin’s outer laying growing more quickly. This makes it more difficult for acne to develop and blemishes disappear faster when people use Stieva A cream. Acne medications are often needed for those who don’t get good results from OTC acne creams. Doctors know Stieva A cream uses and will write you a prescription for Stieva A cream if it’s clear you are struggling with acne.

    You can buy Stieva A Cream with a prescription at most pharmacies, and you’ll always have the best price on this product when order medication from Canada Pharmacy.

    Directions

    Apply a small amount of Stieva A Cream on your fingertip and spread it over skin where acne lesions appear. You do not need much to lightly cover the affected areas. Do not try to rub the medication into the skin.

    Apply Rx acne cream once a day, and most people use it near their bedtime. Do not apply more often than once each day.
