I mean I just got a refill about two weeks ago... we'll see. Maybe it'll help but I doubt it.

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.

I can't take anything with estrogen, apparently, since I have auras, I'm like 19 times more likely to have a stroke. BUT my face is really doing well. I actually dropped to 100 mg of spiro and 100mg of doxy and things are going well!

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. 

Good luck :)

Yah! So glad you kicked acne but!
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!
