25F, Spiro: My Last Resort!

27 posts in this topic

Hey there! Just read your posts. I've been on sprino for 2 months at 100mg. My Derm had me on 50mg the first month which did nothing. From what I've read on sprionolactone , 50mg isn't a high enough dose to see results for acne. You need atleast 100mg.

I still have clogged pores too. In fact, my Derm said at the end of month 3, she might increase me to 150mg. I have slightly elevated testosterone which I why I might need more.

On a side note..... I used the kat von d foundation too. And I noticed it was causing a ton of clogged pores! I think it's too thick for people prone to acne. But that stuff covers amazing I will say.

Also, you should check out the user "Green Gables" post/topic about spironolactone and how to take it, what to expect, etc,... It's very informative.

I also started reading the book "Its your hormones". Great book that also discusses sprionolactone use.
