It's interesting that your derm says you'll still be growing out of it; I'm kind of giving up that I ever will. Neither of my parents had acne, hell actually nobody in my entire family has it as far as I know.
The only thing that has really worked 100% for me was doxycycline but it's only a temporary solution, although I have read about people on here who have been on it for years. But it's not common for doctors to allow that.

Morning and night:
One tablet of Centrum orange flavored chewable when I wake up and one more tablet before going to sleep.
Original Proactive 3 step program twice a day.
Clearasil adult treatment cream for spot treatment. (Work wonderful!)
Drink about three liter of water a day.

Yeah, I went back to using Erythromycin Gel which my Derm prescribed for me and it worked off and on. My Derm said its not good to use antibiotics for a long period of time cause it will mess your organs up and just like anything, after a long time, they will mostly stop working. Woke up today with a nice big ole under the skin painful ass pimple and those damn things hurt and stay forever.
oh thats sucks!! did you stay with topicals though?? its weird, cause ive heard some people stay on antibiotics for years...

I feel like I'd be a fraud for telling you what to do, because I still have acne! Everyone is different to. Some things work for some, and others not. Water is definitely a help. The more water the better. Your liver takes care of hormonal fluctations and the cleaner your system is the better. Water helps every organ, the skin inclusive. Make sure you drink water.. that's my tip.
