Aldactone (Spironolactone)

1 post in this topic

Hello everyone, I am new here. I have struggled with acne since I was 12 and now i am in my 20's. I tried everything to the point where I went on 2 courses of Accutane to get rid of it and it came back 6 months later both times. so now im on spironolactone because my derm believes my acne is hormonal because of the location. well, I have been taking it for 4 and a half months now on 100mg 1x day (50 mg 1x day the first 3 months) with no success at all except a little less oily (but still oily). I don't get it why does nothing work. I keep reading reviews that after 4 months they saw improvemnts but my skin is worse than ever. should I just stop taking it? Please can you guys tell me your experience with spiro! im trying to stay optimistic but its getting hard! Maybe its because I do have a thyroid problem (Hashimotos thyroiditis) and that's why nothing is working for my acne; idk.
