So its day 5 of spiro. So far nothing has really changed. I have started on 25 mg. My derm wants me to start slow so that my body can adjust to the pills. His directions were to take 25 mg for the first 10 days, then alternate 25 mg on even days and 50 mg on odd days for the next 10 days, then 50 mgs per day for the next 10 days. Hopefully going this slow will decrease chances of having an initial breakout. I should add I'm also using topical erythromycin and topical sulfacetamide solution (both are topical antibiotics). As far as side effects go, I have really noticed many. I have maybe been slightly more tired and a little more hungry. This could just be my body adjusting. I also pee more often but thats a given since spiro is a diuretic. Ill update again soon.
Here is what my face currently looks like:
