Hydroquinone and the Regimen?

Hi Everyone

New to the scene here and delighted to find so many great tips on taking the best care of my skin here. I have been working really hard this year to reclaim my skin (sun damage and acne have had their way for too long!)

A product I have been encourgaed to use by my doc is Hydroquinone for my skin mottling. But I am not so clear as to WHEN I should apply Hydroquinone into the Regimen order? I am thinking before the BP - anyone out there have some insight?!

Hope all is swell and CLEAR!

From the FAQs:

Q: Can I use the Regimen with the prescriptions I am currently taking?

A: You will need to ask your doctor this question. Some doctors do prescribe benzoyl peroxide with other acne medications, but it is important that you not experiment on your own.

FAQ on Hydroquinone use and bp.

http://www.acne.org/faq.html#lighten

Do not use products with the active ingredient Hydroquinone. Hydroquinone topical should not be used with benzoyl peroxide, hydrogen peroxide, or other peroxide products. A temporary darkening of the skin may occur. For the full story on Hydroquinone read here (see FAQ for link). Please see the paragraph under "What other drugs will affect Hydroquinone topical?" for the full explanation.
