Hi, I have recently started spiro (almost 2 wks into it, tapering up gradually, now at 37.5 mg/day), and it is shocking how much less oily my skin is already.  Fingers crossed that it will really work for me, but so far so good.  I am in my 40s and have dealt with acne my whole life.  Now my daughter is in her teens and after starting her period has the joy of oily skin and breakouts.  I would like her to avoid all the suffering I went through, including my bad experiences with BCPs, and I'm wondering at what age it would make sense for her to start spiro if it came to that.  All that I have read has been about adults on spiro.  It looks like teens usually get put on BCPs.  If anyone has experience with spiro for teens, please let me know.
