does epiduo cause psycological changes such as anger and depression?
I also experience insomnia and depression. Both of which i didn't experience before using Epiduo. The redness was a problem i suffered with for the first 2 months but now it isn't as bad. I used be prescribed Duac and that still gave me insomnia but didn't feel as harsh on my skin. But when I was taking that hated it too so I don't know if I should stick with epiduo or not o_O I am also going to try the "regimen" from acne.org soon where you cleanse use the cream and then moisturise afterwards;
