Absolutely fantastic news! Maybe in eve more time you will have better results. I have heard of things just getting better and better up to 9 months or even a year.

ok..update...very late..but I thOught I would rather say when I have something good to report.

Good news..finished my 6 months on spiro, better news..I HAVE NO ACTIVE ACNE AND HAVENT HAD IT FOR ABOUT THREE WEEKS OR SO!!

I dont know if this is success but I think it could get better.I have not had a pimple in very long, like a proper zit but I have small bumps here and there after I play with makeup!

ok..one question, will I completely clear and have good normal skin?I hope these lil things go away too!like when I feel my cheek, its a lil bumpy, I would like it smoother.


Anyway thats my two cents.

also my periods havent stopped in so long.I have them so often now..light but laways there almost!wil lthis sort out itself with time??I cant take BCP'S!




I have been clear for awhile and my feeling is that my skin look better when I use topical treatments as well. I use a face wash with salycilic acid or glycolic acid once a day or so and topical prescription Retin-A and Aczone every night. These products paired with Spiro has been like a dream team for my skin.
