Mild, Persistent Acne Please Help

Recommended Posts

Hello I have had acne for about 12 years. I would characterize my acne as mild-to-moderate (depending on the day), persistent acne. I am currently 23 years old and I am considering going on Accutane. I have tried all sorts of acne medication from benzoyl peroxide to retin-a micro. I have tried all the oral antibiotics as well. Recently, I have put more effort in getting rid of my acne and have started to take the regimens more seriously. I got put on Ziana (.025 Tretinoin, clindamycin) and after 6 months I did not see much results so I switched to Retin-A Micro .04. I have been on it for 7 months and although it has improved my acne, I still break out frequently albeit smaller pimples and still get some deep ones every 1-2 weeks or so. I am now considering either taking Accutane or Tazorac because I am convinced that a higher dosage of Retin-A will not be too effective. Does anyone have any thoughts on what I should do?
