Ask Dermatologist: If you're under the care of a dermatologist (which you should be since you're asking about prescription medications), then see what s/he says about this. If you are having side effects with one of the products it might be reasonable to try alternating meds, but it could equally cause a duplication of unwanted side effects, like excessive irritation or dryness. Follow your dermatologist's advice!

Not sure: The both of them are a vitamin a acid derivative, but have the different brand name. Talk to dermatologist, which is right for you.
