What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

How to Use Tazarotene
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using tazarotene and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Tazarotene is for use on the skin only. Wash and dry your hands before applying the medication. Apply Tazarotene to the skin as directed by your doctor, usually once daily at bedtime. Wash your hands after applying, unless you are treating your hands for psoriasis. If Tazarotene accidentally gets on areas you do not need to treat, wash it off to help prevent skin irritation. Do not apply Tazarotene to skin that is cut, scraped, sunburned, or affected by certain other skin conditions (eczema, seborrheic dermatitis). Avoid getting Tazarotene in your eyes, mouth, or on your eyelids or lips. If this happens, rinse right away with plenty of cool water. If you are using a product that is for treating psoriasis, apply a thin film to cover only the psoriatic plaques. If a bath or shower is taken before application, make sure skin is dry before applying. If a moisturizer is used, apply it at least an hour before applying Tazarotene. If you are using a product that is for treating acne, wash and dry the affected area(s). After skin is dry, apply a thin film to acne. If you are using the lotion to treat acne on the face, dot onto the chin, cheeks, nose, and forehead, then gently rub over the entire face. Use enough to cover all of the affected area(s). If you are also using other acne medication (such as benzoyl peroxide) on your skin, apply one product in the morning and one product in the evening to separate the application times. If a moisturizer is used, make sure to allow skin to dry before applying either the moisturizer or tazarotene. If you are using the foam, shake the can before each use. The foam is flammable. Avoid smoking or going near an open flame while applying the medication. Do not cover, bandage, or wrap the affected area(s). Do not apply Tazarotene to normal, healthy skin.
