I am on spironolactone 25mg/day. I take new blood tests in two days. If my blood potassium is normal I can proceed to a higher dose of spironolactone. I have noticed some oil reduction. I also use amoxicillin, cephalexin, tretinoin and benzaclin. When I run out of benzaclin I use OTC 5% benzoyl peroxide mixed with topical clindamycin which mimics ziana.
My goal is to stop taking so much antibiotics and use the hormonal treatment route like spironolactone provides. I also want to get back on an estrogen birth control pill. I still want antibiotics but just not so much. I take a really high dose of amoxicillin/cephalexin. My skin is 90% clear 90% of the time. Still I want more. Total clarity. I also want accutane but my derm doesn't think I need it.
I am also trying to exercise regularly and keep my pillow cases constantly clean. My face looks good now with a few scars. I call them battle scars from a hellish disease. Because that is what acne is, horrible.
