Question: I found out that I can buy Retin A pills online without a prescription and they even throw in free Viagra. Do you think this is a good idea?
Answer: I’m getting a bad feeling. When you take Retin A, you need to have regular blood tess to mke certain that the medication is not affecting liver function. For that you will need to be followed by a physician and I doubt any responsible doctor would feel comfortable working with self-prescribed Retin A.
I personally have not had success buying Retin A creams online, even with a prescription. The online generic Retin A did not seem effective. And then there is the bonus of Viagra???? Retin A pills are known to cause birth defects and in fact, patients have to sign a pledge to their doctor that they will use birth control while on the medication. To pair it with free Viagra, well there are just no words……
Question: I want to use Accutane for my acne problems, but my doctor now ells me it is no longer available. Is this true?
Answer: Your doctor is half right. The brand name Accutane is not longer produced by Johnson and Johnson, but now there are less expensive and equally effective generic versions of the medication. Sotret, Claravis and Amnesteem are generic forms of Accutane ( Isotretinoin). There are available in four different dosages ( 10, 20, 30 and 40 mg). They are to be used 15-20 weeks and many patients report that their severe acne is actually cured and never returns. They are all sold under a special program approved by the FDA called IPLEDGE to prevent birth defects in babies born to women taking Retin A. As part of this program, it can be leagally prescribed and sold only by doctors and pharmacists who have signed this pledge.
