feeling sad about my acne today
i would feel so pretty if i had clear skin
even when i have no pimples my scars are bad
its a hopeless case
i know its vain but i do wish i could have nice skin and look beautiful
acne has been a part of my life for so long that i don't even consider that a possibility anymore

In Topic: Having To Quit Spiro Because Of Low Blood Pressure :(

I can't find any testimones or reviews on Flutamide for acne really, the liver side effects seem more intense than low blood pressure from spirolactone : (
i guess i will start with some natural anti-androgens

Flutamide: Rx anti-androgen that doesn't lower blood pressure
Natural anti-androgens: Saw palmetto, stinging nettle, pygeum, pumpkin seed oil
Natural progesterone cream (NOT premarin or synthetic progesterone): Helps regulate DHT and other androgens


Thank you thank you thank you
Flutamide is making me hopeful again
you should get paid for your contributions to this site

I'm so sorry you're having such a rough time! Try to stay positive... everything will be okay; there are lots of other options you can try! (:


thank you :)

In Topic: How Did You Get Your Doctor To Prescribe You Spriro?

Wow, that sounds like a great dermatologist to me! I wish more would stray away from the antibiotics and topicals route.  I remember reading a post of yours where you mentioned you planned on taking Spiro until menopause, why is that? Has your blood pressure been affected at all? Should i expect to see any results on 25 mg? Your skin looks beautiful, by the way.
