Worked for me
Jan 19, 2006
Hi All!

I visit these boards frequently just to read others opinions on medications & prescrips-some very helpful info! I thought I'd share what has worked for me.

I'm 25 years old-mild acne with an occasional cyst. About 6months ago my face started to break out terribly. I'd have 3-4 pimples at a time which were huge & the cystic pimples that wouldn't go away. I went to the derm about 3 months into this & he prescribed benzacyclin for day, differin for night & an antibiotic. I went 3 months on combo & it made my face worse. I'd tried Duac about 2yrs ago & it worked great for my skin, so on my follow up I asked to be switched from the benz to duac-now only 1month later & my skin is clear. (I still get the occasional pimple, but i don't mind!) I should also include that I stopped taking the antibiotic b/c I wasn't comfortable taking one everyday.

Anyways, Differin & Duac is a combo that works very well for me. Hope somebody finds this info useful!
