I've been using this medicine for a weeks off and on. I'm an African American female with light tomed skin and this medicine gave me this dark black film across my face. If I stop using it it will go away. To me it's useless.

Too strong for me. If you follow the usage instructions and your skin is tingling and a little itchy that's okay, but if it is burning, red, peeling and tight like a bad sunburn discontinue use. If you do experience burning, soak a wash cloth in 1 part cold milk and 1 part cold water and use as a compress and only wash with warm water and a mild cleanser, nothing else until you're back to normal. It's probably going to take a whole week to undue the damage caused by just two nights of application.

Had very mild but persistent acne. Used Tazorac for 13 weeks, resulting in severe, cystic acne. Never had cystic acne before, maybe just a coincidence. This was 3 years ago and I still have to be on an antibiotic to keep skin clear. Wished I'd never heard of Tazorac.

I was prescribed this medication, but my doctor first gave me 4 of the tiny sample tubes to try with the strict instructions that each of the teensy sample tubes should be made to last at least a week. Meaning that it should be applied very sparingly. A regular sized tube lasted me almost 6 months. Maybe some doctors aren't instructing their patients on proper dosage. They wouldn't hand you a bottle of pills with only the instructions 'take some of these', so why they wouldn't take the time to instruct their patients on proper usage is beyond me. That said, I have had absolutely amazing results from this medication. No issues with dryness, and I am able to use a tanning bed with no issues (I do limit facial exposure tho). Before using this medication I'd tried everything I could get OTC because my acne was so painful. I couldn't be happier with my results.

After cancer treatment chemo destropyed my skin's equilibrium. My oil glands were enlarged and I was breaking out like a teenager even though I was in my 30's. I was given this drug, and although it takes at least a month to start working (and my skin looked worse at first) it really does work and I am quite pleased with the results.

I have been using Tazorac for 8 months for purely cosmetic reasons, I have been reading the reviews to see if anyone has the same side effects I do. I finally found one, which is chapped lips and of course I do not apply it there, The other side effect is soreness INSIDE my mouth below the lower lip,with a small groove in the skin. This produet works so beautifully I will not stop using. I know, pathetic,but I would like to know if anyone has had soreness inside the mouth.
