Do retinoids work well on their own/clear acne for good?

Recommended Posts

It seems to me that at best retinoids will only be a temporary cure for acne, and that Accutane is really the thing that ends it permanently. I've been on retin-A, Taz, and currently on differin. Tazorac is the best for me and I think I should just go back if I want to be on retinoids. But, I am on minocycline and sick of it. It's been two years on mino, and I just wonder if I should have gone accutane 2 or 3 years ago and bypassed all this work on my skin.

Also, if I restarted tazorac now (which i had great success with), and weened my way off minocycline, is there a chance that tazorac could keep my skin just as clear?
