    Question Benzaclin or Duac?

    Ok, I take Benzaclin for my acne condition. It's working pretty good but it dries my skin like crazy. But then I was told about Duac, another medication with the benzol peroxide/clindamycin combo. My doc said Duac wouldn't dry my skin as much as the Benzaclin. Duac has the exact same amount of benzol peroxide/clindamycin as the Benzaclin. My question is, should I switch to the Duac or stick with the Benzaclin. I mean if Duac doesnt dry the skin as much why was I prescribed the Benzaclin instead? Anyone?

    DUAC and BENZACLIN are exactly the same. DUAC is just the newer product. Duac will try your skin like benzaclin, but I'm told that the dryness/redness go away once your skin becomes accustomed to it..

    I think the only difference between the two is the base(s) that the benzoyle peroxide is suspended in
