Alright folks, I'm on Spiro and Doxy now to see if I can clear up this weird white head situation. I don't really get cysts a lot, but I have like normal hormonal mild acne. I just wish I wasn't on all this crap!
Don't give up. Hormonal issues are nasty buggers. Look into low progesterone / estrogen dominance if spiro just doesn't work for you.

Still nothing to update since my last posting. I've been on Spiro since August 2011 and it's still working well for me. I think my dose was too high and my periods are more regular now which is good. But yeah, I have mild to no acne. My skin is smooth and I just have have a little scaring but nothing bad. I hope it stays this way!
I hope this log helps people. So far I'm a success story, but its an ongoing journey.
Also, ask me anything.

I would like to ask you if your periods became regular?
My daughter is still spotting and having periods every two weeks. Hopefully this will work itself out cause I don't like the idea of adding birth control along with the spiro.
Thanks and congratulations!

My periods are not regular, but they never were before Spiro either. I did have the period every two weeks when my dose was higher, now it's more of a normal cycle, flow and duration.
Also, still clear. The end of this month marks 2 years! How time flies!

Three years on Spiro... Still works fairly well Still have flair ups, but no crazy cystic acne. I haven't posted in a year, but I'm looking to ween myself off the medication. I may start to reblog should I start doing this.

Thank you for sharing your journey. I am currently on day 50 of taking Spiro along with 120mg of doxy (I take 100mg Spiro), and I am so depressed. I seem to still have cysts all along my jawline and neck! I can't believe that it spread to my neck. Chin as well, with some flare-ups on my forehead and cheeks as well. It is so defeating, I am struggling trying to keep hope. Reading this helped--thank you. I hope that things are still going well for you!
