Anyone in Montreal on spiro? I am currently seeing a derm who won't give me spiro, despite a lot of evidence indicating that I have hormonal acne. I have NO clue how to procure spiro since I don't have a GP.
I tried making an appointment with an endocrinologist, but you need a referral.
Anyone seeing a derm who gave them spiro? I am so desperate, I don't know what to do
You could drive across the border, see a dermatologist in the U.S., and get a prescription. Dermatologists here will let you just pay out of pocket if you are uninsured here. You don't need a referral because we don't yet have some sort of law forcing you to go through the system. You'd just have to pay about $140 for the visit, then about $15 for the prescription.
Then there are Canadian pharmacies that will fill your U.S. prescription every month.
My dermatologist requires I see her once a year to get my spironolactone renewed. One trip down south a year would be a small price to pay for clear skin.
