Tretinoin is usually taken twice daily, preferably at the same time each day.
It is important to take Tretinoin exactly as directed by your doctor.
Tretinoin should be taken with food as this helps to increase the absorption of the medication.
Swallow the capsules whole with a glass of water. Do not open, crush or chew the capsules.
If you forget a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is nearer to the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Do not take two doses at the same time.
If you have missed more than two doses, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
Do not repeat dose if vomiting occurs after dose has been administered, wait until the next scheduled dose. Contact the pharmacist or doctor if you repeatedly miss doses due to vomiting, even with the administration of anti-vomiting medicine.
