Anyhow, 3 months later I don't really see any improvement. My derm said that the congestion would probably take 4-6 months to improve, but I'm still also dealing with daily breakouts, and things just seem to take forever to heal. I guess the only place I've seen improvement is on my forehead and upper hairline, which is almost 100% clear.
I guess I'm kind of discouraged. Does anyone have any positive stories with Spiro that will boost my spirits? I guess I feel like 3 months in I should see SOME kind of improvement, and I don't feel like I am. I'm bummed. I had really high hopes for Spiro.

I have gone through and read old posts that have this same sort of theme. It seems like Spiro is unpredictable - it works quickly for some, takes a long time for others, and doesn't work at all for a few unlucky ones.
I currently have worse acne now than I did when I started back in February (not March, as my prev. post says) and although I pretend it doesn't bother me, inside I am extremely upset and self conscious. I'm 27, btw. Been struggling with acne since I was 13.
I will return to this site in July or August and post an update. Hopefully my experience will help someone else!

I don't get notified of your response to my post unless you QUOTE my post.
Please only quote a small portion of the post so it doesn't clutter up the thread.
HOW I STAY 100% CLEAR:
Spironolactone (anti-androgen drug)
Betaine HCL with each meal
Avoiding silicones and occlusives in skin/hair products

It's been a long time but I would like to update this.
I have been on Spiro for over a year now. My skin is MUCH better. It's not perfect - I still have some congestion on my cheeks, particularly on my left cheek (on which I tend to sleep at night), but I rarely get large pimples anymore, usually only around my time of the month and when I do it's usually only just 1. My forehead and hairline are 100% clear, which is wonderful. My chin still has blackheads, but the small under the skin bumps I had before spiro are at a minimum.
I am very pleased with Spiro!
I am using Osmosis products in conjunction with Spiro, as suggested by my esthetician. I use Clarify in the morning and at night, mixed with 2 drops of grapefruit seed extract, and in the morning I also use Quench as a moisturizer. I really like the Osmosis line, my skin is much healthier looking and has a nice glow.
