I've had this problem before - so I just Googled "Medsmex" and got to the website that way. If all else fails, order from Alldaychemist.

Hi Kelin,

Sadly ADC doesnt stock Renova, generic or otherwise. Only Retin A which is just too harsh for my skin Crying or Very sad

Did you manage to get on the Medsmex website then? I havent been able to?

I know there a a couple of URL's that are very similar to the orginal Medsmex website though but are different pharmacies apparently and not so reputable.

Are you able to post the URL you used? I am not sure if thats allowed though?

Thanks

I think you might be right - looks like it's closed.

What about this:

WOW Kelin!

Thanks SO much for that link. I have searched the internet high and low now for weeks to try and source Renova with no joy at all.

I have used the link below and managed to place an order for several tubes of Renova. Hopefully its a legitimate site a never heard of it but for the price I thought its worth a shot.

I am so grateful to you, thanks again! Smile

Hi,

You might want to try Inhousepharmacy or AllDayChemist. Both are very reputable companies.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I am also looking to order Renova. Did you have a positive experience with the order you placed? I am mainly concerned about my credit card information being used improperly by overseas companies. Thanks

Don't use fastrx if you want Renova. I placed an order with them and they sent me A-Ret Gel, which is generic Retin A not Renova. I'm annoyed because I could have bought the A-Ret from alldaychemist for a much lower price.

I would not order from medmex anymore. They are no longer the same company and are supposedly ripping people off. Greg

Here is a google search of "Buy Renova Online No Prescription" there are sites that sell the generic as well as the brand name, some have you fill in a medical information form and their onsite doctor writes the rx.

I gave up on ordering Renova from a reputable site! I have placed an order with Alldaychemist for Retin a cream which I have been told works better than Renova. I will post after I start using it!

Can anyone help with where to buy Renova / Retin A in the UK. I see it in sites in other countries for reasonable prices but not here. If not is there another alternative that can be used that is the same as retin a or renova. I asked my dr for this on prescription but because i dont have acne (though i am having bouts of hormonal spots) she will not prescribe it for me

Really do want to start using this as ive read such wonderful reviews about it but just can not get it. I also can not afford one that is such high priced

many thanks

The All Day Chemist website says that you need a prescription to order from them. Did everyone here who ordered from them have a prescription for Retin A/Renova, or is it just something they say but don't really enforce? It seems like it kind of defeats the purpose if you do actually have to go to the extra effort to get a prescription, because if you do have one, you can just go to a local pharmacy and get the med.

I just ordered some Retin A a month ago from ADC along with some bp medicine. I didnt provide a prescription nor did i even give them my dr's name. They never asked for anything either. I live in the USA. Greg

Just skip that part. You DO NOT need a prescription or to even give a Dr.s name at AllDayChemist to order.

Leave that area of the form blank.

Here's the link to Medsmex.

I've been buying my Renova from them for 7 years.

This is not the same medmex that you and many of us ordered from in the past. I would not order from them again. These new people have been ripping people off. Pharmacyreviewer.com has put them on their blacklisted list.Greg

An update on Meds Mex. I received my order of generic Renova from them today! It's made by Galderma in France and has an expiration date of Feb 2012 so I'm very happy.

It was extremely slow, as I placed the order on October 28th, and had become concerned that I'd been ripped off. Med Mex had sent me a couple of emails saying that they had a lot of delays on October and November orders due to new US custom regulations which had held up their shipments in Mexico City. I'm inclined to believe them as my package has a postmark of November 11 on it.

So, if anyone else needs Renova I'd say it's safe to order from Meds Mex. They claim to have now solved their packaging issue with the customs guys so hopefully you won't have to wait so long.

Medsmex is in business, my last order with them was in October 25 2013 and i received my package already. The only bad thing is that the shipping is $19.95 but it is worth it because you do receive the package. Wink Great customer service.

I've never had a problem from http://www.inhousepharmacy.biz/but I've only bought Careprost and Lumigen (Latisse clones) from them. Free shipping on orders over $50 I think. In fact, on my last credit card statement I noticed two charges and panicked. Looked at a later date and saw they had reversed one charge to credit me back when they recognized their mistake.

I think it normally takes two weeks from India. All products have expiration dates at least six months or more in the future. I've ordered from them over the last two years with no problems and would definitely order something else again.

Have a look at their website. Lots of products at great prices.

I too have ordered from Medsmex with no problem this time and I agree the shipping is a little high with 19.95. It was medicinesmexico which is part of Medsmex. I waited and waited for them to get back in business, but before that I ordered from Pharmamundi.

Has anyone ordered Renova from medsmex since the last post in Nov. 2013? Were there any problems with your order?
I really need to order some Renova ASAP.
Any suggestions on where I can order it without a prescription and at a cheap price. I would like to get the generic ( Renactyl ).
