Spironolactone Dosage

1 post in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hello all,


I am currently in my fourth week of taking spironolactone 50 mg once a day.  I don't have severe acne.  Just mild breakouts that are extremely annoying, so I was prescribed this medicine.  However, I'm not seeing any improvement yet.  My skin is just the same as it was when I started.  I figured I'd be seeing some difference in my skin after four weeks.  I'm considering asking my derm if I can bump up to 100 mg a day.  Will this help?  And also, will I get another initial breakout after upping my dosage?


Thanks for any help or advice.
