hmmm, after doing some reading on here about Spironolactone I think I'll want to start with that instead

a lot of the reviews say it worked when accutane didn't, and it seems less severe

wonder what my derm will say...

There are a lot of reviews sayin that accutane didin't work ?not even temporaly?that's new...

Well accutane is a last resort , plus ur acne is mild , so I would go for Spironolactone

thanks for responding, i didn't mean the reviews said that accutane didn't work, just that it wasn't a permanent solution for them like it was for other patients and spironolactone is working for them now. i do think i'll start with the spironolactone before resorting to accutane. i would only try accutane if there was a bigger chance my acne would be gone for good. good luck with everything

Day 1 of having this acne.org account has been okay for my acne

I haven't had a picking session, though i did scratch off a whitehead and I haven't been great about keeping my hands off my face

Buttt I have had about half the water I need for the day already, and I made a healthy quinoa lunch with cucumbers and tomatoes

being bad and drinking coffee atm

made an appt to see a derm on the 22nd

thinking of giving a strict paleo diet a chance before adding any prescription acne treatments to my regimen

updates later, xx

spiro is a great option for acne that is hormone related, albeit can take a fair while to work (12 months+)

see what your derm says, you can do spiro after accutane also (as i may end up doing in a few months)

good luck with your choices!

went to see my doctor today for a spiro consult

she prescribed me a small dosage, i haven't picked it up from the pharm yet so idk how many mg exactly

she took some blood tests to make sure my blood pressure doesn't drop too low

i fainted at the check out desk while making my next appointment and i still feel a little queezy/dizzy

i'm nervous to start taking spiro, my acne problems are mainly scar related at this point

i dont want to make it worse
