Just Started Spiro-Looking For Advice

11 March 2014 - 02:16 PM

Hello, long time browser first time posting!


So I guess I'll go into a short bio- I've suffered with acne since I was about 11 years old. I used to have horrible cysts, would cancel plans, the worst self esteem--it was bad. I went on Accutane in 2012 and it did wonders for my skin. After 6 months of treatment my derm took me off of it because I was clear. My acne then crept up later in the year and I was put back on Accutane and again it worked its magic. However, my acne has just recently crept back with a vegence.


Thankfully I haven't been getting those nasty cysts anymore however I still get clogged pores, whiteheads and blackheads. My derm told me it was hormonal acne and put me on Sprio (100mg) and low dose Retin A (0.025) I'm also on Sprintec BCP. 


I just started 5 days ago, I havent had any new bumps form (knock on wood!) but I just want to know when you all started seeing results. And if you did have an initial breakout, was it similar to your own normal breakouts or worse?


Would really like some advice! Acne sufferers, unite! =)
