Retin- a/ Tazorac question

quick history before i get to my question

about a month and a half ago, my pediatrician prescribed, benzaclin,retin A 0.05 and tetracycline to me, however about a month into the retin a (0.05) i told him it wasnt working, he switched me to .1

anyways today at the Dermatologists he told me to only use once a day durac in the morning/noon and tazorac at night. Along with 2 a day pills of tetracycline.

My question is, are those 6 weeks i spent on retin a worthless now that i'm switching or now that im using tazorac i should see results much quicker than the "true" beginer user who hasnt had 6 weeks on other retionoids. I'm not expecting to see any miracles but since im approaching week 7 of retinoids in general, should the tazorac kick in pretty quick? another 7 weeks of nothing seems like an eternity.

I'm curious about this question too as I've been on RAM for 7 months but am not completely satisfied and am thinking of switching to Taz...I don't want another IB! Anyone know the answer?

i think since retin a and taz are like "cousins" the taz should start where the retin left off. ill tell u how my next two weeks go
