Hello all!

Sorry I only post and visit this site, when I'm desperate...but I live a busy life! I really appreciate the advice and wisdom I've gotten from this site over the last few years, so thank you!!

Anyway, here's my dilemma. A dermatologist prescribed epiduo about 6 months ago and then I found out that my insurance won't cover a dermatologist for acne if you're over the age of 26 (so unfair!!!), but I kept using the epiduo. I did have very good success with no breakouts except for the monthly ones for the last 3 months. Now the effect is starting to wear off and I'm starting to break out again. My question is, should I increase the epiduo to 2x a day or should I probably start using something else?

I think I'm going to try the 2x a day and see what happens, but I wanted to get some advice first.

Thanks in advance,
Jennifer

I would slowly move to 2 x a day like use it twice one day then once again and so on.
