Sounds like you have a good dermatologist, you should speak to them.  Tazorac can help with pores, its like retin-a.  There are lots of good moisturizers on the market, stick with an oil free noncomedogenic one if you are acne prone.  Tazorac once a day should be enough, and benzaclin once a day.  Go back and see or call your doctor to clarify your program.
