Can those of you who buy it, what is the cost? I'm considering trying this (because retin-a is too rought for me) ..and can't find a UK site.

Hi, Maya,
I pay $98.00 (U.S. money) for the Retin-A Micro Gel. I would imagine that those who have prescription plans pay a lot less. Hope this helps.

I have never purchased Retin-A micro, however, this online pharmacy offers two 25-gram tubes of Retin-A micro for $63.00:

Try buying it out of Asia. It's usually cheaper.

NJT - I don't understand how US prescription plans work - could you buy as many as you want for that price?

Maya,
To tell you the truth, I am not that sure myself . Each plan is so different, and my plan itself changes (i think our next change is occuring in december already). But, I don't think I can buy as many as i want. It is based on prescription, so my derm prescribed retin-a. I give that prescription to the pharmacist, and i get one tube. I think i am allowed about 4 refills by 10/04.

That's so different to the UK - anyone can get a prescription from their doc. If you are employed, it costs around $10 for each prescription (and sometimes on that 1 prescription, you can get 2 or 3 tubes!) and if you are low income or unemployed, all precriptions are free. It's part of our national health system - all tax payers contribute to it.

But.. we don't have retin-a micro in the Uk sad.gif

Maya, I wish we had that kind of plan here in the States. It's rough paying full price for every med, every doctor visit, every service that has to do with one's health care... sad.gif

retin-a is cheap - retin-a micro seems to be much more pricey.

Like Stefany said - you can get Stieva-a (which is generic retin-a micro) from www.1drugstore-online.com for $40/1 tube or $63/2 tubes, which is a pretty great deal.
