Questions about Initial Breakouts on Prescriptions

Recommended Posts

I had my first dermatologist appointment on February 9th, and I was told that my skin has been making the transition from teenage acne to adult acne for the past year. My acne went from annoying to constant and scarring.

My derm prescribed 100mg of spironolactone once daily, 125mg oral clindamycin twice daily, and Epiduo once daily. I've read people's experiences with initial breakouts on each one of the medications individually, but never when all three were combined.

I started seeing results after two weeks, but my skin has gotten much worse in the past 5 days!

Am I experiencing an initial breakout? Should I expect it to get worse, and if so, how long will it last?
