Basic Information On Differin Cream
Differin Cream, used for topical application helps prevent acne by getting into the deep pores of the skin and clearing existing acne as well as preventing new acne from developing. It does so by normalizing the skin pores and reducing the generation of cells that obstruct the pores. Overall, oil production is reduced thereby reducing the chance of development of acne. The Differin Drug also helps reduce black heads.
Precautions/Side Effects For Differin Cream
Differin Cream contains Adapalene. Possible side effects of Differin Cream include mild irritation, redness, drying or peeling of skin. These are generally exhibited in the first few weeks of application and go away after that. However, if these symptoms are more severe or do not reduce over time, it is strongly advised to seek medical help about possible reduction or discontinuation of the use of the cream. The brand or generic Differin should not be used with other products containing sulphur, resorcinol or salicylic acid as these can enhance the side effects.
Initial spurt in acne might also be seen upon application. However, medication should not be discontinued as this is an indication that the drug is in fact working. After application, exposure to sun light or sun lamps should be avoided. Exposure to extreme weather is also not recommended after application of Adapalene. If one must step out in the sun, use of a good sunscreen lotion is a must. There are no definitive studies on the effects of brand or generic Differin Cream on fetuses and hence pregnant women should only use the cream if the benefits outweigh the risks.
Differin Cream Dosage
Differin Cream should be applied on the affected areas twice a day. Recommended times are just after a shower and again at bed time. A thin layer of cream covering the entire affected area should be applied. It should be applied continuously for a month to notice the benefits of the cream. A slight warmth or tingling sensation upon application might be experienced. The Differin Cream is available as a 0.1% formulation in a tube and is mild on the skin. Waxing as a form of epilation should not be performed during the period of use of the Differin Cream.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
