In addition, using medications for off-label purposes is strongly discouraged, as well.

I hope you're aware that it's PERFECTLY LEGAL for a physician to prescribe drugs off-label for any purpose he sees fit. There's absolutely no question about that.

It's not uncommon for doctors to prescribe spironolactone off-label to women for acne, especially if it's persistent and cystic. I was prescribed spiro by my derm without even mentioning it. I haven't taken it yet though, waiting to see how my skin does in the next couple months with bp as my hormones may still be leveling out from birth control.
