Discussions that mention clindamycin

Acne board


Hi jennypoo,

I understand your frustration. I used Differin for about 3 months and did not see anything wonderful. I was using it at night and Clindamycin topical in the morning. It was not strong enough for my cystic acne.

When I went back for my 3 month check, my derm changed the plan to an oral antibiotic ( which I was supposed to be taking before, but I was a bad girl and didn't take it), Tazorac cream at night, and Duac in the morning. It has worked wonders and worked very quickly.

I'm sure you will be going for a follow up. They say Differin works in 12 weeks so you're half way there. Maybe give it some more time, if not, there's tons of stuff out there. The trouble is finding what works for you. Good luck! :)
