What is Dretine?

Dretine is a combination birth control pill. It contains only the progestogens usually found in contraceptive pills. As a combined pill, it contains a small amount of two female hormones: drospirenone and ethinylestradiol. The pill works to prevent pregnancy and regulate menstruation symptoms while reducing monthly bleeding. 

How does it work?

The pill works to ensure a sperm cell does not reach an egg by thickening the cervical mucus, thinning the lining of the womb and preventing the ovaries from releasing an egg each month. 

Is Dretine right for me?

The pill is a popular birth control prevention medication that is over 99% effective when taken correctly. If you wish to reduce the chance of pregnancy and relieves uncomfortable menstruation symptoms, ask your doctor about a contraceptive pill.

How does Dretine affect acne?

Dretine is a prescription medication used to treat acne. It belongs to a class of drugs called retinoids, which are derivatives of vitamin A. Dretine works by decreasing the production of oil in the skin and by helping to prevent the formation of new pimples.

What hormones are in Dretine?

Dretine contains the active ingredient tretinoin, which is a form of vitamin A. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for vision, reproduction, and cell growth. It can also be found in food, such as eggs, dairy products, and liver. When used topically, tretinoin works by decreasing the production of oil in the skin and by helping to prevent the formation of new pimples. It is not known exactly how tretinoin works to treat acne, but it is thought to work by affecting the growth of cells and by normalising the shedding of dead skin cells.

Is this medication suitable for me?

Please get in touch with a doctor if you are unsure what medication is suitable for you. You can also complete our online consultation form to check your eligibility for the product.

How is the medication delivered?

All orders placed before 14:00 from Monday to Friday will be dispatched that day. The orders are sent using 24 Hour Tracked delivery provided by Royal Mail. Items will usually arrive the very next day after the order has been placed. We also provide tracking for your orders to check the status and location of your parcel. All our medication is packaged in plain confidential padded white or brown envelopes. This ensures that your orders are discreet, and the content of the orders will be for your eyes only.

What is the difference between Dretine and Retin-A?

Dretine and Retin-A are both topical retinoids used to treat acne. They are similar in many ways, but there are some important differences. Dretine is available by prescription only, while Retin-A is available over the counter. Dretine is also available in a gel formulation, while Retin-A is only available in a cream formulation. Finally, Dretine is typically used once daily, while Retin-A is typically used 2-3 times per week.

Is Dretine the same as Yasmin?

No, Dretine is not the same as Yasmin. Dretine is a prescription medication used to treat acne, while Yasmin is a birth control pill. They are both effective for their respective purposes, but they are not interchangeable.

How do I order my medication?

Some products only require an online consultation which approximately takes 1 minute to complete, enabling you to then buy the product. Other products will also require a prescription; in this case, you will need to complete the online consultation, and then one of our partner pharmacy prescribers or doctors will review the online consultation questions and approve the order for delivery if you are eligible to purchase the item.

Can I cancel or return my order?

For non-medicinal products, you are eligible to return the product within 14 days of receipt in the same packaging you received. For medicinal products, you are eligible to cancel the order only until it has been dispatched. From that point forward, you are no longer eligible to return the order.

You have the right to cancel your order for medication up to the point when your medication is dispatched.
