    Is anyone on all three at the same time? Is it safe to be? My new derm has me on doxy and spiro and says no to differin but it has helped me in the past. I have a perscription for differin from my old derm still so I has just going to get it if you guys thought it would be safe.

    i have no experience with differin or doxy, but i was using tazorac when i was prescribed spiro. my doctor told me it was ok to continue using the tazorac as long as i needed it, but i stopped right away because the spiro decreased the oil production in my skin so much that i was afraid my skin would become too dry.

    I'v only used Doxycycline and that did wonders for my acne on my face and body.
    It helped clear the acne.
    Differin is a cream or gel for the face.
    So thats no big deal.
    Its probably good for getting rid of redmarks when the acne goes down.
    I used 100 MG Doxy per capsule.
    Spiro is more hormonal.
    Alot of women take both Spiro and Doxy.
    Doxycycline controls the oil your body is producing.
    Alot of times you body produces to much oil and this is what causes the breakout.
    I would take the Spiro in the mourning and take the Doxy before you go to sleep.
