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 :)

I have a derm appointment in October and he already told me he wants me to go to 100 mgs but if I'm clear on the 50 mgs why bother going up? Not sure what to do

Spiro didn't start working for me till the 6th month and before that was just awful !!!! Hang in there!!! I had break out after break out and almost stopped the Spiro but my dermatologist insisted I keep taking it and said I will be happy I didn't quit after the 6th month mark ! Guess what? He was right!!! I'm as clear as I have ever been in years!!!
