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.


Renova cream is a prescription acne treatment medication that may also be used to reduce wrinkles and lines or improve skin color. It is a tretinoin cream that works by promoting improved growth of skin cells. Users usually get best results for getting rid of acne or improving skin when they also avoid the sun and follow a skin care regimen as advised by their doctor or dermatologist.

You can buy Renova cream with a prescription, and your best price on it will be when you order medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.


Use medication exactly as indicated in your prescription

Standard application is one time daily at bedtime:

  • Clean face before applying tretinoin cream (soap-less cleanser is best)
  • Wait 20 -30 minutes before application
  • Apply a small (pea-size) amount of cream and proceed to rub over affected skin areas
  • Do not wash face or apply another skin care product for 1 hour after application


The active ingredient in Renova cream is Tretinoin.


Keep out of eyes, mouth, nose, and ears.

Do not exceed dosage guidelines and apply medicated skin cream more than one time a day. If tretinoin cream is ineffective you can discuss acne treatment options with your doctor.

Tell your doctor if you have any history of eczema before starting with Renova cream.

This medication may increase sun sensitivity and avoiding sun exposure is recommended while using Renova.

Do not have hair removal products applied to treated skin areas while using Renova, and do not have electrolysis done on treatment areas.

Keep hair perming solutions away from cream and do not apply Benzoyl peroxide at the same time as Renova.


There is the possibility of negative drug interactions between Renova cream and other Rx medications, including fluoroquinolones like ciprofloxacin, tetracyclines, thiazide water pills like hydrochlorothiazide, sulfa drugs like sulfamethoxazole, and phenothiazines like chlorpromazine.

It is best to tell your doctor of all medications you are currently taking before getting a prescription and proceeding to buy Renova cream online.

Side Effects

Tazarotene side effects are uncommon, but some users may experience redness, dryness, itching, scaling, or mild burning sensation. If Tazarotene side effects are seen, then you may want to discontinue use and speak to your doctor again about severe acne treatment options.
