Normal Side Effects from Retin-A? Will It Get Better? Should I Stop? (photo)

Ive been using Retin-A for a month, bout every 2-3 days, and it has made my skin very dry, flaky, shiny...overall it has made it worse. Enlarged pores, redness, increased lines. I know its supposed to make skin worse before it gets better, is this normal or should i stop for a while? I may have started with too much, It looks very smooth, like its irritated, it has caused fine lines in Nasolabia, forehead, any expression. I am very upset, if anyone can help, i am very worried Thank You
