    Exclamation What Is Up With Differin???

    I don't understand this topical. When is it going to work? Is it going to work? It has been a month and almost two weeks and I am still getting breakouts. Is it still just pushing all the bad stuff out or what? Has anyone out there had any success on it????????????????

    I was on it a long while ago. It didn't work. I recently went to another dermatologist and she prescribed it for me and told me to try it even though I said it didn't work before. It's actually making my face MORE oily during the day. Clindamycin did the same thing.

    i agree with you all 100%, Differin worked for my cousins, and that isw why they recommened it to me , but truly it cleared about 5% in 2 weeks, then i started to break out again and it seemed like it was no help. But i am sure there is a cure for all acne, so i am not giving up yet and neither should you =].

    Hey babygirl,

    I remember that me and you are basically on the same regimen..doxy and differin. Well, so far neither is working that great. I've been usually differin almost 11 weeks now and I'm still breaking out. I thought I was starting to clear but I woke up this morning to see these little bumps on the right side of my face...I'm sooo upset. Anyway, I called my derm this morning and made and appt. for next week...hopefully he will put me on accutane...i am sooo down right now...

    i've been on retin-a, doxy, and orthotricyclen for a little less than a year, and my face is almost 100% clear. i barely ever get zits. I didn't see results with the meds though until about 3-4 months. Stick with it and don't give up!! gl

    tscorpio, I am really upset too because I woke up this morning and I have two pimples on my right cheek and I never get pimples on my cheeks, just little ones on my forehead and whiteheads around my chin w/ the occasional cyst. I don't think the Differin is helping either. It actually feels like it is making it worse. I think I am going to call my derm. too. I want to go on accutane. I think it will be the cure I am looking for.
