Whoa! Just realized I"m 86 days in!! Guess this stuff is working. I almost don't need to topical anymore. I still like washing my face twice a day. I use clean and clear with 10% BP since that what my derm told me to use. I also bought a baby brush since people said that was good for exfoliating the skin. It could be a total sham but it was like 2.50 so... whatever. I did try it and it seemed to be ok. I just gotta make sure I clean it inbetween uses. Anyone else heard of the baby brush thing??

My hair is still just as oily...I did get dehydrated today though. I had to make a late-night run to the gas station for ice cold water!!

I feel like I have some spots where I pick at little white heads that don't need to be picked at and I make them worse. They scab and get crusty. I need to stop. Crap.

Face is looking good right now. A bit better than before. REally before my face wasn't BAD it just looked worse because of the azelex and stuff... if that makes sense.
To answer your question... no I've not changed my dose. I know when you do you can have an initial flair up but I haven't done that. I really think it was the topical combined with winter coming... too much dryness. I can see myself using it in the summer when it's humid. But for now I'm going to stay off the the azelex cream or use it much less. My face has been looking much better since. REally it wasn't that bad of a flair up for me... but the topical seemed to aggravate it and made it take longer to heal and made it look worse than it was (all the flaky dry skin eugh...) How are you doing now that you're on a higher dose?
Feebedel, I saw your pic before, ur skin was almost flawless, really good results. Sorry to hear that ur having flare up, I'm experiencing the same right now. It;s weird to me,'cuz I've been clear for a month ( no new pimples at all), but last weekend I got 2 cysts, as I upped my dose to 75mg. I don't know whats up either, tomorrow I'll have an appt with my derm. Have u ever experienced flare ups becoz of the change of your dosage and in the middle of the treatment ( i've been on Spiro for 3 months)???

I hope everyone who tries Spiro has luck with it. It worked for me... but not anymore. My acne has come back. And I"m really sad. My chin is an absolute wreck. I'm up to 200mg of Spiro but it doesnt seem to do much. Really bummed.
Are you using the brand name Aldactone? Or a generic? In rare cases a generic does not work as well for some people because the filler ingredients are different. I noticed this on birth control, I did better on the brand name Ortho Tri Cyclen than on the generic.

I'm on generic, but would that work and then suddenly stop working? Or just never really work well?
It just depends. Sometimes you can get a bad batch of a drug. I noticed this once when I was on Finacea. Although it was the brand-name was mixed right there at Walgreens, one of the tubes I got just didn't seem to do anything. When I got the refill, I could feel it working again as normal.
