Can I use differin cream during the morning?

Alright so my dermatologist gave my clindamycin phosphate gel and differin for my acne. The thing is, clindamycin phospate gel makes my face very shiny and it's pretty embarrassing especially if i hang out with friends and with school comming up i don't really want to be that kid with greasy skin.

So long story short can i switch them around and use differin in the daytime and clindamycin phosphate gel at night? Differin has not caused any rashes or any severe peeling so would doing that be safe and/or still be effective?

You can use differin in the morning but be sure to wear sunscreen or stay out of the sun for prolonged periods of time. It usually causes sun sensitivity.

I'm going to move this to the retinoids subforum.
