Duac is a combo of antibiotic (clindamycin 1%) and benzoyl peroxide (5%). That concentration of BP is only available from a doctor, and the antibiotic helps with inflammation.

Proactive has 2.5% benzoyl peroxide.

The Duac will likely be more effective... and it's redundant to use both products together.

If you want to add an over the counter product to your regimen, you're probably better off with an AHA or BHA exfoliant instead of the proactive.
