In 2 days it will be 8 months on spiro. For anyone who is struggling after a few months of being on spiro, don't give up! It took me over 7 months! I might be talking too soon bc its only been 2 weeks of clear skin, but my skin hasn't been this clear in so long. My husband and I went to Atlantic City over the weekend to celebrate his birthday and it was the first time in soooo long that I went away without something growing on my face. It felt so great to be not freaking out over my skin. The big test will be in the next few days coming, I get my period in about a week. I always breakout badly right before my period and the worst time for me is right after my period, so we shall see. Even if I do breakout I feel like spiro is finally doing its work..If it does happen I will bump myself upto 150, but I am really hoping that's necessary.
Thank you so much Thovis for your very informative post, and for also sharing your story. It's so hard being "older" and dealing with this. I'm so happy to see you have a supportive family. I have no idea how I wld've gotten through this without my husband, he was always my rock and support. I think I might've finally found relief in spiro, I truly hope it sticks! Have you thought about going the hormonal direction? Its so frustrating trying to find the solution..
Well after my 7 month post I said hopefully the 8th month will be the magical month..I think it might be!
