If I already have a prescribed Benzoyl Peroxide thing that is 5% should I stop using it and use Dan Regime? Will it be better or worse?

The 5% BP will work - it will just dry out the skin faster and will potentially irritate.

You should get a cleanser and moisturiser as well to help.

If your.. 'thing' is a Benzoyl Peroxide gel then that is the treatment in Dan's regimen, he just recommends 2.5% as it seems enough to get the job done.

I used a 5% to begin with and have had good results, just start with a small amount.

There have been studies conducted that show 2.5% BP is just as effective as 5% or 10%, but that the 2.5% causes less irritation. This irritation could cause extreme redness and your skin becoming overly dry, etc. It's up to you though. I think people on here who have had the most success with Dan's regimen have stuck with the 2.5% and nothing stronger.
