Tazorac question

Hey everyone, I recently went to a dermatologist for the first time. My normal doctor put me on minocycline for 7 months and it did nothing. I stopped using it and am now starting month 3 or so of doxycyline.

My dermatologist said i should start out gradually. Using tazorac every third night for two weeks, every other night for 2-3 weeks, and then every night. Tonight has been my 3rd application thus far.

Did your derms put you on a system like this starting out? Should I stick with this system or just start using it every night. I haven't noticed any irritation, just a few flakes, but moisturizer takes care of it for the most part.

I started with the cream and then will switch to the gel ( sample tubes atm). I also use cetaphil daily cleanser twice each day.

What did your derm tell you when you were first given a retinoid?

Edit: Also, should I be popping new pimples or let them sit?
