My dermatologist has reached the last options of medicines he wants me to try before he begins to discuss Accutane with me. I am currently on Spironolactone & Minocycline, both of which i take 100 mg daily, alongside with Acanya in the morning and Acezone at night. I was orginally only on Minocycline and Acezone and it was incredible that within my first 2 weeks of taking the medicine my skin cleared up beautifully for the most part, but as i approached the third week with the medicine I began to break out again horribly (I was really confused by this). I noticed my skin was clearing up incredibly well right up until I was approaching my period. Therefore my doctor prescribed me spiro since my acne most probably is hormonal. Being able to see that I had clear skin for 2 weeks was such a tease and has made me even more miserable then I was before since the acne returned. Anyways I have been on mino for a month now, and spiro for about 2.5 weeks, and the topicals I have been using for a month now. I have heard several times from many people that spiro does take a while to begin working but how has the experience been for spiro users in their early stages? Anyone else who tried mino go thru something similar to my beginning experience? I would love to hear other peoples experiences with these medications.
