23 / F / Waiting To Start Accutane Next Week / First Post

15 May 2013 - 01:03 PM

sooo I went to the dermatologist today with low hopes for my acne situation

I have been afraid of Accutane since researching this site but it was the first thing she recommended

She eased all my fears and we talked about the potential side effects

She told me she's seen amazing results from patients she's treated with it

and Idk, the possibility to an end of acne makes me feel like a new person

I can't really believe its a possibility I can picture for myself

I go back next Wednesday for a pregnancy test and I guess (idk) if that's when I'll start the treatment

Having To Quit Spiro Because Of Low Blood Pressure :(

30 September 2012 - 07:30 PM

You guys, I'm at an all time low on my acne-fighting journey.
I had to quit taking spironolactone last week due to terrible dizzy spells and numbness. I went to the doc and my blood pressure had dropped considerably. I am really sad because spiro was working for me, my skin will never be great because its so fucked with scars but at least I wasn't getting new acne. Fast forward to tonight and my skin is horrid. I have two new blood scars. One is right between my eyebrows! And the other is my biggest blood scar yet on my right cheek.  Even my boyfriend pointed out how bad my skin has gotten since I stopped taking Spiro and I can feel people looking at my acne when we talk. I just had a picking session and I'm typing this with a bloody tissue to my face. I want to give up. If I can't take Spiro what else is there? How do I keep my blood pressure up? My skin is so ugly :( I am crying right now.

How Did You Get Your Doctor To Prescribe You Spriro?

I made an appointment with my doctor to ask for Spironolactone, What information should I have in case she asks? It is my gyno who I will be seeing, I only want Spiro for acne, Is it hard to get it prescribed?

How do I get my doctor to prescribe me Spriro?
