I began taking Spironolactone approx two weeks ago, 50mg per day in the AM. Accompanied by 100mg Doxyclycline per day and a medicated nightly topical.
Symptoms: Initial breakout, frequent urination, cloudiness
Experience: Upon starting this medication, I began to breakout almost immediately. Of course, I am taking Doxy and using Epiduo at night. I started Spiro with cystic acne on right side of chin and jawline closest to mouth. No acne on right cheek, entire left side of face, forehead, neck, chest or back. I'd say I had moderate adult acne. Since starting medications, face has broken out severly on right side cheek, inflammed pustules mostly. Cysts on right chin and jawline are dimishing though. I have one inflammed pustule on the right cheek (rare) and no acne formed on my forehead, neck, chest or back. The acne I'm experiencing is painful, surfaces quickly leaving red spots behind. Going back to the dermatologist to assess this breakout - which is quite considerable and definately the worst I've ever experienced.
