hi! i went to my derma last thursday and she prescribed me Minocycline for 1 week (oral, once a day).. aside from that she also gave me topical remedies:

1. soft cleanser

2. clyndamicin (on areas affected)

3. hydrocortisol (areas affected, 3 days only)

4. (am) erythromycin (after the 3rd day)

5. (pm) tretinoin (after 3rd day)

---> and today is my 4th day.. and its y first time to read about the regimen...

what do u suggest? i take the regimen with this?

or i stick with the regimen alone?

or i stick to this prescription without the regimen?

pls help me figure this out.. ur replies are much needed..

thank u!

Why don't you stick with what your derm prescribed for a few months to see if it works? If it does, great. If it doesn't, you can decide whether you'd like to stop and give The Regimen a go.

Moved to Topical Retinoids forum .... I recommend that you read the pinned posts at the top of the forum, especially if you are new to tretinoin.

I cant believe a dermo would prescribe so many topicals. I dont know how bad your acne is, but a regimen with that many topicals baffles me, no offense. It seems like they just want to try stuff to see how it works.

I hope the regimen works out for you, and best of luck.
