Spironolactone- 3 Month Update (90 Days In)

Hi guys! I just went to my 3 month Dermatologist appointment last week. This was my first time there since I got prescribed my medications. She ended up telling me we probably didn't need to reschedule and I am guessing that is because she really thinks I am on a good treatment plan. No, I still am not clear.

Spironolactone- 2 Months Update (60 Days In)

Spironolactone- 1 Month Update

I have been reading reviews that after 1-2 weeks, this pill made peoples acne magically go away. This hasn't been my case. I never had super severe acne this time around, but it was mild closer to moderate. It would not go away for weeks. This week, I have noticed a big difference, just from Monday to Friday. My acne on my cheeks, is almost all gone. The second and third week of the month my cheeks and chin were breaking out alot. The pimples are significantly smaller. It looks like they are alm
 

Spironolactone Journey 2017- First Post & Acne History

Hello, I am a 19 year old female. On July 21st 2017, I was put on Spiro, at 100 MG a day. I take Nuva Ring Birth Control with it.

It really destroyed my social life, self esteem, and put me into a deep depression
