 Acitretin

Acitretin (trade names Soriatane and Neotigason) is a second-generation retinoid. It is taken orally, and is typically used for psoriasis. It is a metabolite of etretinate, which was used prior to the introduction of acitretin. Etretinate was discontinued because it had a narrow therapeutic index as well as a long elimination half-life (t1/2=120 days), making dosing difficult. In contrast, acitretin's half-life is approximately 2 days. However, because acitretin can be reverse metabolised...

Retin A Cream

I live in Brisbane Australia and am beside myself as I have been told by 'Johnson Pacific' that my precious 'Retin A' cream 0.5% manufactured by Janssen-Cilag has been globally discontinued. 'Retrieve' does not compare for me- it is made with a different base product, I have tried it and it does not work for me the way Retin A cream does. I have been using Retin A cream for over 20 years, originally for pimples, which is great- but the way it keeps my skin looking so clear, fresh and unmarked is amazing (I stay out of the sun)-i depend on this cream so much; does anyone know what the equivalent could be here in Australia or Over-Seas. Thanks. ## Retrieve is the next best thing, there is a brand called SteviA or something along those lines but it's hard to fin... ...

Retinol Acid

I have used Tocoderm acido retinoico in the past, bought it in Mexico. Can I find it in the US? ## would like to buy aacio retinoico. Can I buy it from Mexico? ## WANT TO BUY TOCODERM ACIDO RETINOICO 0.050 ## In the U.S, Retina-A is only available by prescription, and it is not legal to purchase it from another country and bring it in, unless it was prescribed for you there, in which case you can bring in a 3 months supply. But you must have proof from a doctor and provide that proof to customs. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including skin irritation, redness, and burning. This site does not manufacture, prescribe, nor sell any medications. Is there anything I can help with? ...

tretinoina crema

A dermatologist prescribed Retin A for my skin for exfolient and regrowth of new skin. It has worked wonders and my skin looks alive again. This was yrs ago and I now buy Epitrol from Mexico. Does very well and I will continue to use it since people tell me I do not look my 74 years. It never caused rash or peeling as I used it per instructions. Also I use a cream on top. ## Hello, Nonna! How are you? I am so glad that it has worked so well for you. However, due to the risks, I can't encourage anyone to obtain it elsewhere and use it without their doctor's approval. It can cause the peeling and skin burning as side effects, according to the FDA, which could result in scarring and worsening of some skin conditions. What type of cream do you use with it? ...

EPITREL/RETIN-A 0.05 g

Growing up my family didnt have the resources for dermatologists, and expensive late night infomercial acne solutions and at 14 years old my acne was horrible. Luckily we lived 20 miles from the Mexico border (Baja California) and after my mother visiting her favorite pharmacy a nice lady working the counter introduced me to several generic Retin-A creams that were only $5 for a 40g tube; one of them being EPITREL 0.05 g. I'm now 38 and my complexion never looked better and I do not have one wrinkle or breakout on my face. Only use at night before bedtime! Wash, exfoliate, moisturize. 3 steps! Retin-A has also been shown to GREATLY reduce the appearance of stretch marks or newly formed stretch marks over long term use but scars not so much. For acne it is best to apply a dime size a... ...

epitrel acido retinoico

We would like the instructions for using the above product because it is in Spanish. Thanks ## Hi Sam, The english translation for this med is Retinoic acid, more commonly known as Retin-A (Tretinoin); which is indicated as a topical treatment for acne. I don't know what percentage of active ingredients it contains, but the instructions for using this cream state that you should apply it once daily, and only at night, after washing your skin with mild soap and water. Applying excessive amounts may cause skin irritation, so I'd just be sure to use it conservatively if your skin starts itching or has any burning sensations. Additional details on dosage and administration can be found here: dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/lookup.cfm?setid=0ee4fccd I hope this info helps! ## I have me... ...

crema epitrel tretinoina

I have been using the .025 version of this cream for a year and wish to get more but am not traveling to Mexico this year (unfortunately). Do you know of a reputable web site where this cream can be found? thank you. ## Hi Sandy, Based on my research, Retin-A (tretinoin) is reportedly a US brand of the same topical cream that your seeking. The only thing is, this medication has to be prescribed by a doctor or dermatologist here in the states, so you wouldn't necessarily find it online w/ out a valid prescription. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Retin-A Details I hope this info helps! ...

Retinoic Acid is used to treat various different cancers and severe acne. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Retin A Details I hope the info helps! ...
