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

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.
