INTRODUCTION

Tretiva 20 Capsule belongs to a group of medicines known as retinoids that are used to treat severe acne, which occur as pimples, in adults and adolescents from 12 years of age only after puberty. This medicine is for patients whose acne has not responded to other treatments.

Tretiva 20 Capsule should be used in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. It should be taken with food, preferably at the same day, each day to avoid a missed dose. It may take several weeks for your symptoms to improve but keep using it regularly to get the most benefit. If you notice no improvement after a few weeks, see your doctor again. Using more medicine or applying it more often than prescribed will not make it work any faster and may increase side effects.

They are not usually serious and often disappear after getting used to the cream but if they bother you or do not go away, tell your doctor. You may need to apply smaller amounts or use it less often. Serious side effects are rare.

HOW TRETIVA CAPSULE WORKS

Tretiva 20 Capsule is a derivative of vitamin A. It acts on glands (sebaceous) to reduce the production of a natural substance (sebum) that causes acne.
