Has anyone switched from a Retin-A regimen to tazorac immediately? I would like to know your experience. Any breakouts? I switched to taz last month from Retin-A (was on this for about 3 months) and my skin has broken out very badly. No cysts yet, but way too may whiteheads...with no signs of respite! I am going to give this 3-4 months..like I did for Retin-A.

Any help/advice is always appreciated. Oh yeah, I am also taking 100mg Mino twice a day. Stopped the Clindamycin long time ago as it did me no good whatsoever. Thanks y'all.

For me, I hated Tazorac. It made my skin SO oily and my skin was never 100% clear with it. I've read that the purging period is longer with Taz that other retiniods. I purged for about 3 months.. ugh. I can't compare it right now to Retin-A, but I am starting RetinAMicro soon. Just had a bad experience with Taz, not to alter what you think about it yourself. You might have great luck w/it.
