Duac is awesome, but how long til it stops working?

Started using Duac (topical clindamycin and BP) about 2 weeks ago and have seen MASSIVE improvement in my face. I look SO MUCH BETTER. But Duac is a topical antibiotic, and I'm bracing myself for the resistance that is sure to cause it to stop working. Anyone know how long Duac usually works before it quits? Any experience with that?

Timber -

Glad you are having initial success with Duac. I, too, was using it for quite some time last year and it worked great! I hardly ever had bad breakouts. And if I did get a few pimples, it would dry them up fast!

Unfortunately, I don't know if the Duac wore off, or the BCP I was on (OTC-Lo) got to be too much for my hormones, but my skin basically exploded in acne after about 6 months on Duac.

When I did use Duac, it was one of my favorite topicals. The only bad thing I noticed was that my pillowcases were somewhat discolored from the perhaps you should use light colored pillowcases.

I hope that it continues to work for you in the long run! Best of luck!
