wow kirks im so sorry to hear your still struggling with cystic break outs!! I truly hope things start looking up for you soon! I know for me it was a battle the whole first 6 months. As of today I have zero acne so there is still hope with the Spiro! I posted 2 or 3 pics of how Spiro has worked on my skin, I don't think I could live without it now but for those 6 months they were hell, l would of never thought I would be at this point when I look back and see how painful and horrible my acne and cysts were. Don't lose hope kirks!!

Ive been wearing Dermablends Smooth Indulgence Foundation for years, for me it gives great coverage and doesn't break me out, its too bad they discontinued it :(  Now im thinking of trying Estee Lauders Double Wear but after reading reviews on it I am now worried I will break out too!!!!!

Yes some dermatologists  are very stubborn about prescribing meds. I had a derm who wouldn't give me anything but topicals so I had to change doctors. I have a good dermatologist now but unfortunately I might have to change since our insurance is going to make us pay $80 co pay  and we are only paying $40 now. Im afraid the next derm wont even give me Spiro and ill be back to square one again.

Spiro did the same to me. I had the worst break out of my life the first 5 months on it but my doctor told me to hang in there till the 6th month and Im sooooo glad I did, I almost gave up too. Its very hard to stay strong when your having break out after break out but all I can tell you is to hang in there, a lot of us went thru the same thing your going thru now. We are all here for each other and you are not alone. Don't hesitate to message me if you ever need someone to talk to :)
