Cetaphil with Clindamycin

Has anyone else tried cetaphil cleanser with 1% clindamycin in it? I'm surprised it isn't more popular. I got a prescription for it years ago and it's the ONLY thing that has worked for me. Accutane cleared my skin up 100% but it didn't even last for a year.

Does anyone else have any experience with this prescription?

Re: Cetaphil with Clindamycin

I've never even heard of that. I use regular cetaphil cleanser, but perscription cetaphil sounds even better. Do you know if you can use it along with retin-a?

Re: Cetaphil with Clindamycin

I would imagine you could. I used to use mine with Differin gel and isn't that just like Retin A?

I got my prescription for Cetaphil with clindamycin from a dermatologist about 6 years ago and then I stopped using it after my skin cleared up. During a really stressful summer my skin broke out horribly again so I just went to my family doctor and said that I wanted him to prescribe it to me so just ask your doctor. It makes your skin really soft!

Re: Cetaphil with Clindamycin

you said that the accutane cleared you right up but didn't even last a year? What type of acne did you have? was it severe, cuz i am on accutane right now, and sure am hoping that it lasts for a lot longer than a year
