Would you consider getting on spiro while you're on accutane? My plan is to stay on belara during my course and hope it will keep the acne from returning after the course. Maybe it would work for you too?

Have you ever tried using nothing on your face? Most cleansers and moisturizers have comedogenic ingredients in them even if they say they don't. Cetaphil would make me super cloggy and bumpy like you're describing.

Good luck with your new regimen! I'd try cutting dairy out of your diet too, if you haven't already

Just curious, have you ever considered the fact that your acne isn't acne at all, but is something else like an infection, irritation, or rosacea?


In Topic: Has Anyone Experienced Noticeable Hair Loss On Spironolactone?

Hi everyone,

 

I know this thread is very old, but I am experiencing a similar problem.

I have been on Spiro 50mg for 7 months, my acne completely cleared but my hair has been thinning for about 4 months.

I have just read that hair loss is a side effect of Spiro, which confused me as I too thought it was prescribed FOR hair loss.

 

I was wondering, for all of you who have experienced this, has your hair grown back?? Is it temporary, or perminent??

 

I would so appriciate it if you could take the time just to quickly tell me what your experience has been! I'm very distressed sad.png

Sorry you're experiencing hair loss. I know how upsetting it can be :(

When I stopped spiro it took about 6 months for the hair loss to slow down, and then it slowly started to grow back. If you have any more questions just let me know!
