Are there any non prescription substitutes to Acanya gel?

I've been using acanya gel in the morning and tazorac cream in the evening. I was wondering if there is an alternative to the acanya gel once I've used it all up.

Acanya Gel is a combination of an antibiotic and benzoyl peroxide.  Although you cannot find a complete alternative over the counter, you have the option of trying 5% benzoyl peroxide creams.  There are many different brands available such as PanOxyl and Clearasil Ultra.
