Don't Have An Antibiotic Yet, Should I Start Differin?

Ok, so my new birth control has caused these awful breakouts (red papules all over chin cheeks and forehead) but I'm on the third month and waiting it out. I have a dermatologist appointment in a little over 2 weeks, but the nurse gave me some samples of differin and duac to use while I wait (as they had been prescribed to me in my highschool years). Should I use these samples, or wait until my derm appt to get some oral antibiotics to use along with them? Is it ok to start taking oral antibiotics 3 weeks in?
