When to give up?

How long should anyone stick with a remedy before giving up? I started using Neutrogena complete acne therapy system 2 weeks ago and things have gotten worse. I'm almost ready to move on but I'm not sure if I should keep going with it hoping it will finally work.

A month at the least. I would say 1-3 months.

At least try it for 6 weeks to see if it starts to get better. Your skin will get worse before it gets better. There is underlying acne that forms beneath the skin and you are probably purging so it should get better.
