I started Differin (.3% gel) maybe a month and a half ago. I got my initial breakout instantly and boy was it bad. I was in tears for two weeks and was exceptionally close to giving up. My face hurt, both from burning, dryness, and the acne itself. I think my years of Epiduo made it work even faster for me. I stuck with it though, and now my marks and acne have improved tenfold and is so clearly improving every day. I would say persevere because what else do you have? Even if you're so certain it's not doing anything for you, stick to it to prove to your derm you need something more. I'm not clear, but I'm back to a state where with a very small amount of makeup, I can make it look like I'm clear, and I can once again feel comfortable wearing my hair out of my face.
