I have just been prescribed 10mg Accutane for 3 months & Spironolactone (not sure how many mg's) as well and ongoing after I finish Accutane to control hirsutism/hormonal acne. Could anyone share their experiences on using both of these medications at the same time?

I am on my 6 month of Accutane and continue to break out. I have polycystic ovarian syndrome which is probably why I am so slow to respond to the Accutane.  My doc just added spironolactone 100 mg twice a day after my DHEA came back super high.  We'll see how it goes, it's only been 3 days.  The spiro makes me get super hot, super easy and sweat like Chris Farley...it's awesome. :(  The Accutane makes me crazy sensitive to heat also, so now it's a double whammy.
