My derm didn't prescribe me Duac.. should I stop using it?

My derm prescribed me Panoxyl Face wash, Tetralysal tablets and Differin. But as Differin is to be used at night, and the wash is for morning, I had nothing to put on inbetween so I went to my chemist and got Duac and have been using that. But since my dermatologist didn't tell me to use Duac, should I stop using it? or will it help?

Been using it for about a month now.

I have never used differin or duac because, but i think if u use both, it might by way to drying for your skin

i think you shud stick to what your derm prescribed originally

I remember when i was on tetracycline, i washed my face morning and night, and in the night i put on bp prescribed by my derm and in the morning moisturized and that had me clear for almost a year until my acne became resistant to tetracycline

Lol, I was put on tetracycline for about a year by my doctor. That just had no effect. Panoxyl and Differin were very drying on me for the first week/2 weeks. But I moisturised and all was well.
