    Hi! Welcome to the board! ;-) I haven't tried any of those things your derm prescribed, sorry. But I wish you lots of luck and I hope they work great for you. ;-)

    Re: Hello I'm New Here. I Just Wanted To Know How Many Of You Have Tried Benzaclin??

    I am on banzaclin, and Retin-A generic. I am on day 4 or 5 I think. I can see it clearing stuff up, but my face feels like it is burning off. Even with moisturizers it is very dry. My lips are always chapped. I know she told me that if it is too bothersome skip a day or not am and pm. But I am giving it a go for at leats a month. She said the redness and burning would subside after a couple weeks after my face gets used to the RX. well good luck to you. All I know is I have had acne for about 15 years. I am going to be 30 next week and I am sooo sick of this. I have stuff under my skin that never comes out and has been there for years. It is so deep you just can't pop it out. plus the red breakouts and the black heads. Plus I also have cystic acne before my menstraul cycle. So I am hit in all areas ......Let me know how it works for you.. My next post is, anyone know how to stop the buring???? help! ~Nat

    Thanks To All Of You For Answering. I Really Hope This Works For Me. I've Been On This For 6 Weeks Now I So Far So Good. I Have Fewer Pimples And They Dont Last Too Long To Heal. Like I Woke Up On Friday With Many Little Ones On My Forehead And Then When I Woke Up On Saturday They Were Not Red Anymore So I Guess The Stuff Is Working. Hopefully. I Also Know I Have To Be Patient. Nothing Works Overnight. Thanks Again

    That's a co-pay? Our insurance didn't cover it but I bought it anyway and found Cosco to be the cheapest place to get it. I think I paid around $60 total for it. My son loves benzaclin and it always clears him right up.

    I paid $125 for the Duac !!!! My insurance doesn't cover any acne medicines.
    It does last for quite a while though. I just grin and bear it.

    benzaclin costs $50 for me. it sucks, but it works very well. just keep using it. you can feel it dry up your face about 1 minute after you apply. i love the feeling of a dry face, that way i know its getting better. i also use minocyclin and retin-a micro. has been going well for me.

    Benzaclin works pretty well for me. Sometimes a little too drying, but a decent product. My insurance covers all but $30, which is definately worth it. A very, very expensive prescription.
