Overall, satisfied with my experience.I was prescribed to use this medication (clindagel)in the mornings and epiduo at night. A perfect combo for my cystic acne! Highly recommend anyone suffering with cystic acne to go ask their dermatologist about these topical medications:) Only bad part: My skin becomes very sensitive from the medication making it a little rosey if too much is applied.
