So far I've been on doxycycline for 2.5 months and epiduo for 1.5 months. My skin has improved from mild to moderate acne to quite fair acne. My chin has cleared considerably and doesn't break out much now, which was originally the main area I got breakouts. In regards to the rest of my face it has mostly cleared. However, I still do get a few breakouts smaller ones I might add, but not nearly as many as I did prior starting medication. I was just wanted to create this update for anyone else trying those products. They have worked so far for me, they just take a long time to kick in.

Awesome T2Pepper! Your regimen is sensible in my mind. I use a retinoid and an antibiotic too and the results have been quite dramatic. I use benzaclin also, that's where we differ. Benzaclin is a combination of 5% strength bp and 1% strength clindamycin. Rounding out my regimen with amoxicillin and cephalexin. Keep using those meds that work and you will continue to see improvement. Good luck!
