I'm on a similar regimen. I'm on Evoclin (topical antibiotic), Tazorac, and Minocycline. I've been on it for 2 months and it has been AMAZING! My skin looks great. I really saw great improvement after the first month. Good luck.

hey...like your name "music" cool.gif

I took both doxy (100mg twice a day) and duac with minimal results. Iwas also taking Retin-A Micro at the time. I will say that they kept my acne under control, but they did not stop it. I asked my derm how much longer I would have to be on doxy (I had already been on it for almost 5 months) and he said for years to come. I couldn't believe it....that's when I decided to go ahead with Accutane. And that's where I am today...

I was on a similar regimen once, duac and differin once a day. The duac kills active acne pretty quick. The differin on the other hand takes a while to kick in and prevent acne formation. You could find yourself pretty irritated the first month of use though.

I think Duac is similar to what i am using. My mate sed it takes about a month to notice significant changes so stick with it. And my doctor put me on 50mg of doxycycline...seems a bit low, but ill see how it goes,been on doxy for 2 weeks and the gel stuff for 1 week,,,not really a significant improvement so far but im goin to giv it a shot my log is called 'Jaime's Log' in the personal regimens section if u want to track my progress...
