The Regimen And Retin-A And Duac?

3 posts in this topic

I've just ordered the Clenser and Moisturizer to do the Regimen because I currently have BenzaClin (aka Duac) . It contains 1% clindamycin phosphate and 5% benzoyl peroxide. I was prescribed this for my day treatment and Retin-A for nights. I was thinking should I use both of these as prescribed as my treatment options for the Regimen? Perhaps use only the BenzaClin as it is closer to the Regimen's recommended treatment (though stronger) or invest in the Regimen's treatment of 2.5% BP?

Has anyone had experience doing with regimen with either or both of these products?

The Regimen only uses 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, so if you are using Retin-A or Duac or any other prescription you aren't going to be on The Regimen. I just wanted to clear that up because the "what to expect" we talk about with The Regimen only applies to people who are following it strictly, using only the products that Dan recommends. Please follow your doctor's instructions for using your prescriptions.

Here is Dan's answer when people ask about using prescriptions with The Regimen. http://www.acne.org/faq.html#prescriptions

Hope that helps!
