Should i STILL be breaking out 8 weeks into Retin A?

Ive been using Retin-A .1% gel for 8 weeks now and have seen a little progress. My scars have lightened and my skin is smoother, however i still have the same AMOUNT of spots I did in the first month... if not more. My face is no longer purging but im not seeing significant improvement yet. This is very discouraging and im probably going to try TAZORAC .1% cream on one side of my face to see if it works... has anyone else made the switch from Retin-a to Tazorac?

I am still using retin-a. I found it took about 3 months for my skin to settle down, and I was prescribed the weakest one (0.01%). I was glad I stuck with it because the texture of my skin has improved so much. In fact, several of my friends have started using it after seeing the results of my skin.
