Epiduo for my Acne Problem?

I never used to have bad acne, until I used Proactive. Then I started using an all natural herbal product that my mother uses in her profession, but it's just not working for me either. I've considered trying Epiduo, is that the right thing to do?

Epiduo is an excellent prescription medication for Acne. However, it is prescription and should be used under a physician's supervision.

Epiduo is a good choice for mild to moderate acne. It combines a retinoid, adapalene ( Differin), with a 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide ( same active ingredient as found in Pro-Activ). While epiduo is an excellent medication, I would leave the final decision up to your physician.
