 2  Acne & Anti-Aging Reasons After going to see a dermatologist, i was taken off of Retin A (which at the time was doing just about nothing positive for my skin and had my face and eye area very irritated and dried out)and was prescribed to start using Epiduo instead. I sincerely hoped that this medication would be a better alternative. But, unfortunately, I had to end up getting off of it after a short period of using it. It did help with my acne. However, my skin just cannot handle having benzoyl peroxide being used on it daily for an extended period of time at all. My face and eye area started to become very dried out and so irritated, to the point, where I had to end up getting off of it. My dermatologist then prescribed for me to start using Differin (adapalene) Gel 0.3% instead. And, that is what I am currently using on my face at the present. The cons far outweigh the pros, when it comes to using this stuff. Which is why, I do not recommend it at all. F 45 days

EPIDUO  (ADAPALENE; BENZOYL PEROXIDE):  This medication is used on the skin to treat acne. This medication is a combination of adapalene (a retinoid) and benzoyl peroxide (an antibiotic and skin-peeling agent). This product may decrease the number and severity of acne pimples and promote quick healing of pimples that do appear. Adapalene works by affecting the growth of cells and decreasing swelling and inflammation. Benzoyl peroxide works by reducing the amount of acne-causing bacteria and by causing the skin to dry and peel off..   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
