Hi,

I've tried searching the forums for this information, but I can't seem to find anything on it... I'm not sure if it's different in Canada than in other countries, but I'm having a hard time finding a place to order Retin-A from and those that I have found say that it can only be ordered if I have a prescription for it. Where are you all ordering it from?

TIA Very Happy

Just in case it helps, most dermatologists and family doctors will prescribe Retin-A for antiaging purposes if you ask them to.

The price will not be that different from buying it online and if you have insurance, your insurance will actually reimburse you for the cream so it will be almost free.

maybe in canada it will be almost free--my insurance no longer covers retin-a, and i heard that this is bcoming standard practice after the FDA approved it for anti-aging.

i am actually interested in this topic, since my physician prescribed the cream 0.25% but it seems as if i could get retin-a micro or tazorac online and that might be a better buy for my money, i.e. better than paying full price for the generic cream 0.25%.

I used to go to a walk in medical clinic that had samples ofmost medications and many creams in small tubes.

I probably got years ago a tiny tube of retin A.
I know a year or so ago I had gotten a whole box of Differin samples in tubes..guess no one wanted them? or they had too many samples??

Anyway the product was not really for me,didn't see toomuch result.
So, now I have most of a box of differin samples...probably expired now though,lol

I think you can also get retin A through the government drug plan-my aunt has a drug card from being disabled and it covers all her medications.

You could try www.reliablerxpharmacy.com

I had no problem getting a prescription from my Dr. and with my health plan it's only about $10 here in Canada. HTH

I go to any walk-in clinic and ask for it; of course, they ask what do I want it for and if I know how to use it and the redness, dryness, that one could develop, etc., etc.

I have private medical coverage through my employer and I still pay some, I don't remember, maybe 20 dollars, something like that; not completely free.

You know what they say when something sounds too good to be true. ReliableRX Pharmacy has Tazret Forte Cream similar to Tazorac .1% 15 gm $5.24 and no prescription required? What's the catch? Out of date meds? Samples?

I've been looking for a substitute for Renova because of the price.

I get Retin A and Tazorac from All Day Chemist. I heard that the Micro isn't the real deal so I can't vouch for that, but I saw pretty amazing results with the other stuff. I do not have a prescription.

Something that should be also almost as good is M2 body refinish.
It contains Mandelic acid12% and makes your skin very smooth.

I always use it on my arms,elbows and feet...no more dry awful looking skin.

EDS sells M2 skincare too.

A Euro possibility is Avene Eluage body lotion (.05% retinal, the strongest retinoid after tretinoin) 200mL for about 25 euros.

Buying medication from a trustworthy provider can help eliminate the risks of receiving low quality medication. I used this site a few weeks ago, and I found it very useful.. I was able to buy my medication online (without a prescription) in bulk for a cheaper cost.

I've bought from Inhouse Pharmacy for years. No prescription, I pay by credit card. I think their bank is in the Bahamas but I haven't bought anything for a while. Stocked up on Careprost and Retin A a while ago and am down to the last half of one tube so plan to buy soon.

Thanks for bumping this topic! I will look at these sources.

Also SoftSkin they must have changed something since the last time you purchased from IH. I see on the about us page that they require prescriptions.

Also reliablerx is mentioned in this thread, but you seemed skeptical of it. Has anyone had any success with them? I know they require a script but the prices are really good.

I have now checked ADC, reliablerx and Inhouse. None of them will ship to Canada because of customs issues. It's a shame because those were the most reasonably-priced sites.

If anyone else has any recommendations, I'd really appreciate it. I'm going to look into Top Sale Shops, but the tubes are half the size.

Also one more thing to note. My parents live in the US, so I've thought about getting ADC to ship Retin-A to them and then they can ship it to me.

Is this allowed? I'm not sure how I'd even manage it without paying an exorbitant shipping cost, though, because they're in VA. Anyone ever try this before?

Thanks.

Yes, I also found offshorecheapmeds It is also affordable price prescription drug store and Pharmacychecker accredited pharmacy but they do not ship in Canada. But ship except for Canada. Very reasonable price.
