Improvements but side effects

Exning

398 views

i recently stopped taking the Yasmin. It had never made an effect on my skin and was causing too many issues. I stress too much about possible side effects and I never wanted to take it in the first place
I havent had any new spots in a week, and overall the past two werks ive actually been seeing a decrease in red inflamed pimples (still blackheads and zits under the surface that you cant really see) after increasing my dose to 100mg however Im now experiencing side effects that got so bad I went to the ER bc i felt terrible. Everything came back normal thankfully but i was left still confused. Well I had low phosphates from peeing it out bc of the spiro.
im getting:
1. Chest pains bad
2. Difficulty breathing
3. Anxiety/depression
4. Nausea/dizziness

the chest pains are what are most concerning. Should I stop the medicine? I dont know what to do. And i just got off birth control so who know how my skin will be in the next few weeks

Side effects like those are not the norm .  I think stopping BC could be contributing.  You could try cutting back on Spiro for a bit and see if it helps.  I am at 100mg for almost 5 months and my side effects are almost nil.  My acne on the other hand still sucks.

I cut it down to 50 and im starting to break out again. Idk if I should higher the dose or just stay on it. My depression and side effects have improved
