Retin A to Tazorac .1% cream

Hi Everyone! I have been on retinoids for 7.5 months and am mostly clear except for some mild acne spots. For teh past 4 months I have been using RAM .04%, which has worked pretty well. My derm offered to let me try Tazorac .1% cream as I am not completely satisfied with my progress. What I'm wondering is whether I will get an initial break out as I did first started retinoids? Anyone switched ?

Hmmm...imo Retin A micro is the best topical retinoid out there. They kept trying to get me to use Taz, but I wasn't impressed. I doubt if you would have an IB if you switched. If I were u, I would just increase the strength of RAM.

Thanks for responding! I haven't tried the tazorac yet but my derm seemed to think it was the best. I like retin a well enough but I'm still have some small bumps. I'm a little nervous about trying it as the tazorac has mineral oil in it.
