Tried Retin-A Micro and it didnt work...

I tried Retin-A Micro a couple years ago with some success but it never completely got rid of my acne and it made my face extremely dry. Would a different retinoid like Differein have different effects than Retin-A? Im not really sure how different the drugs are. Is it worth it to try Differin for a while, or perhaps another cream? I have currently been on a topical antibiotic along with doxycyline and while I havent had any large pimples, my face is still very much broken out.

differin is a "weaker" retinoid (it's adapalene), but it wont dry you out like retin-a did. i've used them both. you could try it.

Anyone? I hear Tazorac is a more effective form of Retin-A. Is this true? Im considering giving it a try.

tazorac is a completely different retinoid. it's tazoratene (i probably spelled it wrong.) it's stronger and tends to be VERY harsh on yoru skin. i've used it before.
