First Day On Doxy

Posted by Baybreeze, 19 September 2013 · 90 views

Hey guys!
So I've been on spironolactone for about a month and a half now and just started doxycycline today. I have been experiencing a pretty bad initial breakout from the spironolactone so I'm hoping the doxycycline helps calm it down a little bit.
 
If anybody has taken either of these let me know how it's worked!




I have been on both! Spironolactone is my saving grace.I was on doxy, clindamycin lotion, and tretinoin gel for a long time. The doxy was rough on my tummy and I noticed no help from it so I quit using it after 5 months or so....I used the the tretinoin gel for a bit, which helped but not to the extent I wanted. Got a Rx for spironolactone in addition to the tret gel, and I've been 90-95% clear ever since! Luckily, I didn't have any initial breakout from the spironolactone, maybe because I had already used the tretinoin for so long? Who knows. GOOD LUCK!

Ugh your lucky! When my derm first put me on spiro she also prescribed me trentinoin, which I think was too harsh for my skin. I had a lot of under the skin bumps which made them come out but to where it was painful. The doxy is a lot on my stomach but I'm hoping it will help. Since I've started spiro It has made my face breakout like crazy :(
