Tazorac Gel Strengths (.05 & .1)

Hello, I am on about week 6 of Tazorac .05 gel for moderate acne. I have very consistent acne. I am using this with 150 MG of Minocycline a day. I am seeing a differnce in my skin (for the better). There is less when I break out it seems , and its not as swollen. My question though is, should I be on the .1 strength gel? Everywhere I go I hear that the .1 is used for acne but it doesnt really say .05 is used for acne. Is this really a problem? I am completley lost right now. As for now I plan to keep using the strength I have, and if in a few months my skin hasnt cleared up a lot, I will be asking the derm again. Any responses would be great from people who have used tazorac or who are on it now. Thanks!

I was using my sister's .05 Tazorac for 2-3 weeks until I went to my physician and he prescribed me .1 when I asked.

It's too early to say anything about the differences, but I was noticing more minor breakouts then I had when I was on .05. Hopefully I'll clear up on it.

Sorry if this didn't help.
