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.


Stieva A cream is a prescription medication for acne treatment that works very well to get rid of acne. The primary ingredient in this medicated acne cream is Tretinoin, which effectively promotes skin’s outer laying growing more quickly. The cream speeds up the healing process for existing acne and prevents future acne and blemishes with as-directed use of Stieva A cream. Acne medications are often recommended for anyone that doesn’t get sufficient results with OTC acne creams. Your physician will be familiar with Stieva A cream uses and will write a prescription for Stieva A cream if they see you’re struggling to get in control of your acne.

You can buy Stieva A Cream with a prescription at most pharmacies, and get the best price for this product when you order medication from Canada Drugs Direct.


Wash the skin of the intended treatment area and dry thoroughly before applying the medicated acne cream.

Apply a small amount of Stieva A Cream on your fingertip and spread it over skin where your acne lesions are. Not much cream is required to lightly cover your affected areas. Do not attempt to rub the medication into the skin. It will be absorbed on its own.

Apply Rx acne cream once a day, and a popular choice is to apply acne medication before going to bed. Never apply cream more than once each day.


The active ingredient in Stieva A cream is Tretinoin.


Apply product topically on skin only. On-label Stieva A cream uses will not involve oral medication use or using it in any other manner.

Medication should be kept away from the corners of the nose, mouth, eyes, and easily irritated areas. Do not apply excess amounts to avoid medication running into the eyes or other areas.

Do not apply Stieva A cream to any areas of skin that have eczema, severely inflamed skin, or open skin lesions.

You should avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight while using Stieva A cream for acne. If that is not possible then you should use a high-SPF sunscreen and wear a hat that shades your face while you’re in the sun.


Drug interactions risks exist between Stieva A and other medications and / or supplements - benzoyl peroxide and medications that increase the skin's sensitivity to sunlight (common examples being: isotretinoin, sulfamethoxazole, trimethoprim, minocycline, and ciprofloxacin), medicated or abrasive soaps and cleansers, multivitamins with vitamin A, products with high concentrations of alcohol, astringents, spices, lime, skin preparations containing sulfur, and resorcinol. This includes salicylic acid and soaps and cosmetics with a strong drying effect.

Advise your doctor of all medications and OTC healthcare supplements you are currently taking before receiving a prescription to buy Stieva A cream.
