spironolactone and 4 more...
Now it is official. I had my annual woman's exam this morning and my blood pressure was normal so I got birth control pills. I read somewhere in a dermatological journal online that spironolactone combined with an estrogen birth control pill clears acne for 88% of women. I took my first birth control pill of the month at 9:44AM! If you have followed my bl...

I am trying so hard to be good. I am taking only the prescribed doses of all medications. That means three lousy amoxicillin pills per day. Thats down from 15 by the way. omg omg!! I have like a total of 5 zits right now! I am freaking out because I am no longer accustomed to breakouts. I have been pretty much clear for 3 years and then boom. My antibioti...

spironolactone, amoxicillin and 3 more...
I got blood drawn yesterday. The phlebotomist was nearly incompetent. She jabbed with the butterfly needle right into my flesh and starts moving it around. Excruciating! She also suggested that I may be running low on blood. Ridiculous. I offered her my other arm and she still couldn't find a vein. Finally she poked around and pierced one and took my bloo...

Posted by leanna123, 24 February 2014 · 100 views

I have been on spironolactone for three days. lol Prolly too early to look for results considering it takes six months to work for most people. Now my regimen is as follows:
 
1. Tretinoin plus topical clindamycin once per day
2. benzaclin twice a day
3. Amoxicillin or cephalexin 3000 mg per day
4. 25mg of spironolactone at bedtime
 
Before my...


New Regimen/high Hopes

Posted by leanna123, 20 February 2014 · 51 views

I finally got my blood lab work for spironolactone done. They stuck me with a huge needle and drained out two vials of rich and robust red blood. OUCH! The tests were done at the lab and then I and my dermatologist were able to access the results via my health records in my online account for my health insurance. She started me off at 25mg of spironolacto...

Idk What To Think...

I went one day taking my amoxil as prescribed and I got three pimples. When I o.d. on amoxil I have clear skin. My derm told me she wont increase my dose. I know she is trying to protect my health overall, but I have zero side effects when I take thousands of mg of amoxil daily and zero pimples. I don't know what to do. My pharmacy is starting to turn aga...

Antibiotics!

Posted by leanna123, 10 October 2013 · 66 views

I decided, momentarily, to take a mere 1,500mg of amoxicillin daily as prescribed. Huge mistake! I broke out all over. It was traumatic. Thank god I had an extra refill of cephalexin. I took almost a whole 90 pills of amoxicillin in the past 7 days but I am finally all clear again. I contacted my dermatologist and asked her if she would increase my dose s...
