In the past couple of weeks my skin has cleared up dramatically! No more awful jawline spots & no more acne coming up on top of existing acne which I had such a hard time dealing with before! I am still breaking out to a certain extent but it is more like 1 - 3 isolated spots a week I am on 50 mg of Spiro & am seeing my derm on Tuesday so I am going to ask to be upped to 75 mg & see if that blasts away the isolated spots I am getting!
I don't have any other SE's that other ppl have reported - no thirst, weight loss, less hair etc. My breasts got very big in the first month but seem to have settled back to their usual size.
It was interesting - I had an appointment for my annual medical with my nurse practitioner. She balked at the idea of me taking Spiro. She said it would make me grow hair in places I didn't want to grow hair. I mentioned something to her about Potassium & she said as it was potassium sparing I didn't have to worry about my K intake! I told her I had done a lot of research into Spiro & I didn't believe either of these to be the case. She immediately backed down & didn't question my decision any further but it kind of showed me how little she knew about this drug.
So all in all I am pretty amazed by how quickly it has taken effect - I was expecting months!
My confidence has improved & I don't think it is a coincidence that my sales at work have improved after months of very little when my acne was at its worst!
Anyway I will keep posting - there is still a lot of room for improvement as my scarring is pretty bad so need to see if there is anything I can do to help that!
