Retin-A .0025+Doxycycline

Hi everyone, this is my first post, so bare with. Just a little background info: I've been taking 100MG of Doxy twice a day for the past four months. It helped at the beginning, and I don't even know if it's working anymore. My acne isn't that bad, I just get a lot on my neck and some cysts on my cheek and jaw area. I eat healthy and try to sat away from sugars also. I went to my dermatologist last weekend and she prescribed me Retin-A and told me to apply it every third night to begin with. So I've only applied it two nights and my skin (face and neck) is way worse than before. I don't know if this is the initial breakout phase because after doing some research, the initial breakout phase begins around week two or three. If anyone is on or has been on Retin-A, how long did the breakout phase last? I was hoping that I wouldn't have an initial breakout phase because I'm on Doxy, but obviously that's not the case. I've tried everything, and I'm getting desperate. Thank you!
