Q: I noticed there are is a gel and a cream, what is the difference with the Retin-A Micro Gel Pump?
A: Both gel's and creams use the same active ingredient Tretinoin to help fight acne. However, the difference with the micro gel pump is that there are microspheres in the gel that can release medication slowly overtime. Compared to the regular gel and cream the medicating effect can last longer due to microspheres slowly releasing medication over time. You may also apply the medication to your skin immediately after washing it instead of having to wait 20 minutes.
Q: Can I use this cream while pregnant or breast feeding?
A: There is not enough medical data to know if the breast milk can be affected in nursing mothers. It is best to speak with your doctor about the risk of using this cream while breast feeding.

Q: How should I store Retin-A Micro Gel Pump?
A: This should be stored at room temperature away from children and pets. Never dispose this medication in wastewater. If you are unsure of how to safely dispose unwanted or expired medications speak with your local pharmacist for disposal options.
