First derm appointment... Some questions on what I was perscribed.

Recommended Posts

I was perscribed Solodyn to be taken once a day as well as duac to be used twice a day.

1) First of all, what is the real point of taking an antibiotic like solodyn if Im going to end up getting off of it eventually? Are there any permanent effects from taking it? Whats hte point of putting myself on a pill and have all the acne come back the same as before?

2) While the instructions on the Duac say to take it once a day but the doctor told me twice. Shouldnt i be taking something like taz in addition to the duac? Is it bad to take the duac twice a day and will that affect the antibiotic resistance from the product?

I just feel like what i was given is just a temporary solution and that I should be put on something more long term like taz or retin- a in addition to the duac.

What do you guys think?
