I've been on Spironolactone for almost a month now and I swear my skin in oilier than ever and I'm getting more cysts all over - face, back, neck, arms, chest - everywhere!

The derm told me it would take a while to work, but how long? And why does it take so long to start working?

Is it common to see hormonal acne get worse before it gets better with Spiro?

Help please. I'm feeling really down.

My OB/GYN just prescribed Orthotricyline BC to take along with the Spiro. I won't start them until Sunday, but I do hope the combination works. I'm getting desperate.

I've read about the rat tumors too, but I'm so desperate, I don't even care.

I took Ortho Tricyclene and it didn't do anything....take Yasmin BC I think it has that spiro already in it.......cleared my hormonal cysts up in 2 weeks! I have NEVER gotten another cyst or pimple again.
