In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

Yesterday, 09:46 AM

Ok 6 months into Spiro and as of today my skin is clear :) I did get one cyst right under my lip that hurt like hell but its now gone and I don't have one single pimple! I asked my gyno to change my birth control to Ortho Tri-Cyclen and she did so I took my first pill today. I really hope the new birth control and the continued Spiro will keep me clear from here on out. I have a dermatologist appointment on Tuesday and I think he's going to up my Spiro, if he does I will ask for 75 mg and wait on going up to 100 mg. I'm really happy with my progress.

Hi beautiful Maria :) I just wanted to check in and see how you are doing. I'm about to up my dose to 100mg next week when I finally see my dermatologist after 6 months. I'm so worried about another IB I cant take anymore. The 50mg of Spiro seems to be working but not as good as I thought it should be by now. I'm still getting a cyst here and there. I've also been cutting out foods that I thought I could finally eat again like chocolate grrrr. Well, I hope the 100mg will work better for you, keep me posted on your progress :)

Hi Spiro ladies :) I've been reading everyone's journey to give me a push to keep going with the Spiro! I'm still not clear at almost 6 months!!! As I type this I have a nasty cyst right under my lip and it hurts like hell !! I have a derm appointment next Tuesday and I'm sure he will up my dosage but I cant stand the thought of going thru anymore initial break out :(  I'm mad and frustrated at the moment but we all must keep the faith that Spiro will work. Good to see I'm not alone and we all can lean on each other to cope with all this.

Well going into my 6th month of spiro I thought for sure I would be clear and for the most part I am but still getting a painful cyst right around my menstrual cycle. I decided to change my birth control from Lutera to Ortho Tricyclen and when I see my dermatologist I will ask to bump me up to 75 or 100 of Spiro. So as of today I feel just ok about my skin.

Keep up the bad attitude towards people with acne or being fat or anything thing else you might want to make fun of and you will always have that karma on you!!!!!!! Negative thoughts and actions will ALWAYS give you just that in life negative thoughts and actions upon you.
