3 Weeks



I have been on 50mg spiro for three weeks now. My face is so broken out. I thought I was getting less oily, but now I'm not so sure. My hair is less oily for sure, but my face, I can't really tell anymore. The breakouts I am having are huge, disgusting whiteheads. Really sucks. All over my face except my forehead. It has gotten a little better in the past few days, but I look like a mess. I am going to the doctor this week to see if I can increase my dosage to 100mg, since that seems to be what most people are on. I am definitely not giving up because i know it takes a while to see results, but I wonder if I would be better on a higher dosage. The breakouts I am getting aren't cystic at least, so that's one good thing. I would just like to see the best results in the quickest amount of time, though. 100mg seems like a normal dose. I'll see what my dr. says.

Forgot to add, my face has been quite itchy in the past 10 days or so. I do notice the breakouts tend to go away quicker than normal, but there are so many, it doesn't really matter. The itchiness is really annoying.

I didn't see any results with spiro until I hit the 100mg mark. My skin got better, but spiro alone was not enough to keep acne at bay for me. Highly suggest getting your dose increased. It did wonders for a girlfriend of mine. Good luck!
