is it any good?

I used it for about three months, but had to go off it because the refill cost too much (I have no insurance). I started Tazorac the same time as doxycycline and I wasn't sure which was most to credit for clearing up my acne, but after I went off the taz I noticed small but noticable increase in surface zits (the doxy controlled my cysts), particularly on my back, so it seems it was doing a decent job while I was on it. Like all retinoids it can dry you out, so my doc recommended easing into it, applying only every other day at first and sometimes skipping a day when you start to peel really bad. Eventually you'll get used to it and can work up to every night.

Give it a shot, and good luck. Let us know if it works.
