regular Retin A?
I know that it is a slow release formula, but is it just as effective as RA?
Is it better (as far as side effects) or basically the same thing?
Why would someone opt to use RAM over RA?

I only use .025% RA and RAM doesn't come in that low strength, but my mom uses the .1% RA and the RAM is available in that strength. I wonder if she should switch to RAM for any reasons.
thanks

I understand that it may be less irritating since it is time release, I have never used the micro as I have no problem with RA.

I see on Alldaychemist site Strength: 0.04% micro:

Generic Name: Tretinoin Gel Microsphere
US. Brand : Retin A Micro
Manufacturer: Sun Pharma
Strength: 0.04%

HTH Very Happy
