One Month Update



I've been on 50mg of Spiro for a month. Today, I take my 100mg dose for the first time. I haven't experienced any side effects really. My body is getting used to taking more water in. I take my Spiro at 5:45 pm with dinner or crackers everyday and haven't had any stomach upset. The one time I took it with a smoothie only I was pretty dizzy. I definitely see a HUGE difference. The deep lesions I had on my face are filling in and lightening up. I only got one new pimple this week (I am supposed to get my period either tomorrow or Sunday). I have been going make up free to run errands and most importantly I started going to the beach again!! I haven't been in almost 2 years because I was horrified of being bare faced. Obviously wearing a hat and using plenty of sun screen :) My routine is basically the same:
AM- Birth control, cetaphil wash, cetaphil AM mousturizer with spf 30, aczone
Dinner- spiro
Before bed- cetaphil wash, cetaphil night cream, epiduo every other night

Here's a photo :) Instasize_0429101040.jpg

Only one month in and your skin looks so much more even! :) 

We have nearly the same regimen--I just bought the CeraVe PM moisturizer so I'm hoping that will kill some of my redness. I'm going to add in sunscreen once I know my face is okay with the moisturizer change. Look forward to seeing your progress!
