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.


Retin A Gel is a prescription medication for treating acne anywhere on the body where breakouts may occur. It may also promote faster skin healing after acne and blackheads clear, and Tretinoin works by changing the way skin cells grow. The gel is applied directly onto the skin and regular use of this acne reducer medication helps young people deal with acne and have more blemish-free skin.

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


Once you are prescribed and buy Retin A Gel, then start by washing your hands before applying Retin A acne cream or gel.

Gently clean affected skin areas with a mild cleanser and pat dry.

Allow 20 to 30 minutes to pass before applying Retin A.

Use fingertips to apply a small amount of medicated acne cream in a thin layer over affected areas.

Repeat once daily as necessary at bedtime.


The active ingredient in Retin A Gel is Tretinoin.


For topical use on skin only.

Be sure to not apply to inner lip area of inside nose or mouth. Do not apply to cut, scraped, or sunburnt skin. Do not apply to areas of skin with eczema plaques.

Avoid getting medicated acne gel in eyes.

It is possible that acne may worsen originally after starting to use medication, and that for some people it may take 8 to 12 weeks to notice results from this medication.


There is the possibility of drug interaction risks between Retin A gel and other Rx medications and OTC products, including hair perming solutions, cleansers containing alcohol or menthol, medicated or abrasive soaps, products containing sulfur or salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, ciprofloxacin, tetracyclines, hydrochlorothiazide, sulfa drugs like sulfamethoxazole, and phenothiazines like chlorpromazine.

Tell your doctor of all medications you are currently taking before getting a Retina A prescription and proceeding to buy Retina A gel online.

Side Effects

Retin A side effects are uncommon, but some users may experience redness, dryness, itching, scaling, mild burning, or worsening acne. If Retin A side effects are extreme or worsen then you may want to discontinue use and meet with your doctor again about other acne treatment medication options.
