Hey guys so I was really busy this week and didn't have time to post an update so Im combining week 3 and start of week 4.
I ended week 3 on Friday and bumped up to 100mg/day.
Over the last week Ive noticed a massive difference in the oil, as I mentioned previously. I can definitely attribute it to the medication. I only had 2 cystic pimpled on my right cheek and one of them was a blackhead I tried to remove myself so it was my fault. Other than that, which are both slowly decreasing in size, my breakouts have been minimal. I do notice the small bumps on my forehead and cheeks a lot more now that there aren't big bumps to distract me. My forehead became bumpy the week I aaas starting Spiro and it has cleared a bit but Im not sure why there are loads of small bumps. My cheeks are bumpy as well I think they are blackheads but I'm not sure.
Every time I've increased the dose I notices myself extra tired for a day or two. I had to take a few naps yday in between studying for exams. Other than that I don't really notice any side effects.
I had read somewhere that if you get "flu like" symptoms you should contact your doctor. Has anyone ever experienced this? The week I started, after 2-3 days i noticed I was a little congested and feverish. it went away so I didn't think much of it but when I bumped up to 75mg for week 3 the same thing happened and has now cleared again. Im waiting to see my GP to mention it and also see if he can arrange a blood test to monitor my potassium.
Until next week!
