I also have been using it for about 3 weeks now. I was on .05, until yesterday, when i got my .1 prescription. i am breaking out like crazzzzzy!!! within the last week, ive had 9 new pimples :( they are clearing up now, but theyre not small, so i pray they wont scar me...im also on doxy. im supposed to use the duac in the morning, but i dont. just dont like that stuff. im gona use my leftover sample of .05 as an extra spot treater on old/healing pimples. i really want it to get rid of my scars. any luck for you on the clearing up of scars? hows it working for you?

Well, someone should give you a uplifiting testimonial for Tazorac. I started it 3 months ago and my face is perfectly clear...a little red, and kinda peely sometimes but it's clear! The first months suck though...believe me. Just keep at it, and it will work.

okay, I felt guilty about that half-assed response...everyone here who knows me know I can be pretty criptic and annoying...

Yea...I've used Taz before...I had moderate-severe acne for a couple of years, after my first bout of acne. Then I went on the Taz .01% and it took about a year, but it helped me tremendously not only with red marks, but also indented scarring. It took a while tho...it didn't obliterate things completely, but it did it's job...

thats awesome Dalsor! im really glad it worked for u.. but wat type of acne did u have? mild? moderate?

i think have moderate acne.. not severe at all.. so i hope it works for me

Well, I went on tazorac(Still on it) about 3 months ago after 3 trials of accutane(a lot I know). My acne was mild/moderate before I went on, and tazorac took it out. Just brace yourself the first few months and Taz should do it's stuff. Good luck!

hey ive been reading a lot of this forum, and some ppl hate tazorac... my i ask y? i think its working pretty well for me.

That's because not everyone is built the same. In dealing with acne for so many years, if I can tell you I've learned one important thing is that people (not everyone) who usually come to these types of websites are usually the most frustrated because something didn't work for them and they try to find other means of success. Think about all the other hundreds of thousands who are probably on the med as we speak and dont' come to this website. A lot of them have success. It's good to ask, but don't just base results on what people on the internet tell you before trying it.

I have been using tazorac 0.1% cream for about 3 months now and it has improved my face a lot. I am about 90% clear, although i only had mild to moderate acne to begin with! :razz:

well, I can't say it has fully worked for me. I havent used it for a long time..

TODAY it's been 4 complete weeks on tazorac, and yes, my face does look better than before i started. I have a lot of scars, and its really fading them which i think is awesome. The doctor said that i wont see any results for the first 4-6 weeks, but i have already noticed it has been working.. it hasnt healed me yet, but it is too soon for that.. ive read taht it takes about 8-12 weeks for tazorac to work, and that's when ill see the real results.. of course, if i see GREAT results on those weeks, im going to ask my derm if i can stick with it....

I'm going to be patient because that's wat it really takes. PATIENCE IS THE KEY. Im also going to STICK WITH IT. Put it on when im supposed to and follow the directions that my derm gave me.

im happy, because its only been 4 weeks, and i'm already noticing results.. small, but results nontheless.

I just started Tazorac myself. I was on Retin-A, and it wasn't helping with my red marks, so my Dermatologist is trying this out now.

If this doesn't work, we're going to try Accutane.

I just started Taz a couple day ago. So far I like it. One thing I thought was odd though was that I didn't get any starting dryness like my Derm said. So now I'm just using it all over my face.
