In Topic: Spiro...my Last Hope

Today, 06:17 PM

Hi Shadylee, I was on spiro 50mgs for 6 months and was soooo clear for 3 months then started breaking out around my periods again so my derm bumped it up to 75mgs, well after 2 months I was getting those horrible cysts again so now im on 100mgs with Minocycline to try and calm down these break outs....im beyond frustrated at this point. I feel your pain on the break outs! when will this hell end !!!

I feel like crap! My derm bumped my Spiro from 50mg to 75mg and now I got another IB !!! My whole lower face has a lot of white heads that have turned into cysts! Its so painful. I went to my derm this morning to get all of them injected, I felt so embarrassed to walk around with my face so swollen and bloody! So now my dermatologist has prescribed me 100mgs, im scared to even take it!!!!!!!

Well it looks like after months of no acne worries Im gradually starting to break out around my menstral cycle again so my derm bumped up my Spiro from 50mg to 75mg so I'm really hoping I don't get another IB :( I'll be staring the 75mg tomorrow.

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!!
