hi there.ive recently been put on duac aswell,only in the morning time.if your doctor has prescribed you to only apply at night,then do that.i dont know about an ib,at first my skin saw great improvement,then last week i got a really really bad breakout,maybe this was the ib,only it was 6weeks in :think: .i havent noticed it doing much,except actually breaking my skin out in places where there was previously nothing,not major spots though.anyways,good luck :)
