I have been on spironolactone (100 mg) for three months now. While I have not noticed a drastic improvement in my skin, I have noticed a subtle improvement and have been told to be patient with the results. Recently I have thought about discontinuing Spironolactone treatment due to irregular bleeding. I cannot be on hormonal birth control (the pill, etc.) as I am sensitive to migraines, therefore I am unable to regulate my periods this way. The past two months I have had my period twice per month, each time with a period of about week. I feel like I am bleeding more often than not. Last month my doctor gave me a 10-day course of progesterone treatment to stop the irregular bleeding, however it only worked for a short period of time before the bleeding returned.
Should I stop the Spironolactone treatment? Should I lower the dosage? (My doctor does not think a lower dosage will help, but you never know.) Does anyone have any experience with this? Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks.
