Retin A medical Information
Retin A is used in the treatment of acne. Retin A reduces the formation of pimples and promotes quick healing of pimples that do develop.
How to use this medication
Patient instructions are available with Retin A. Read them carefully before using. Apply a thin layer of Retin A to affected area at bedtime. Use a gauze pad or cotton swab to apply the Retin A. Wash hands immediately after use. Using Retin A more frequently or in excessive amounts does not improve the results, but may increase side effects. Avoid applying Retin A near the eyes, mouth, or open cuts since this medication can irritate sensitive skin. Acne may appear to worsen when the Retin A is first used; continue therapy. It may take three to six weeks before the full benefits of Retin A are seen.
Retin A can increase sensitivity to sunlight, wind and cold. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and sunlamps. Wear protective clothing and use an effective sunscreen. Retin A should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed. It is not known if Tretinoin appears in breast milk so consult your doctor before breast-feeding. Use mild soap when washing your face. Do not wash face excessively. Abrasive soaps, cleansers, medicated creams or lotions can increase skin irritation; check with your doctor or pharmacist about their use. Use other acne preparations with caution while using this medication.
Side effects
Immediately after applying Retin A, the skin may feel warm or mild stinging or redness may occur. Some peeling of the skin may occur. These effects should subside as your skin adjusts to Retin A. If they persist or become bothersome, inform your doctor. This medicine may also increase sun sensitivity.
Missed dose
If you miss a dose of Retin A, use it as soon as remembered; do not use if it is almost time for the next dose. Instead, skip the missed Retin A dose and resume your usual dosing schedule. Do not "double-up" the Retin A dose to catch up.
Drug interactions
Inform your doctor about all the medicines you take with and without a prescription.

Cosmetics may be used with Retin A, but clean skin thoroughly before applying the Retin A.

Store Retin A at room temperature away from sunlight.
