Long term use of Spironolactone?

I'm wondering if you guys are planning to stay on Spironolactone for many many years?

I've heard that the acnee, oil production etc come back as soon as you stop taking it so I guess we'll have to stay on this medication for the rest of our lives?

Don't you think it's scary? I mean...in 10-15 years from now, will we have kidney failure? Renal problems? ect?

Please, tell me what you think...

wow. I've only been on Spiro for a month. No results yet. I'll give it a few more months but if it doesn't help me than I'm just going to stop it.

Are you on Spiro? How long have you been on it? Has it worked for you and your acne and oily skin?

I don't have acnee, I have really oily skin and scalp. ( I mean really oily scalp )

I've been on Spiro for 3 weeks now ( 25 mg the first 2 weeks and 50 mg for the past 8 days...so far, no results...and I've been spotting all the time.) :rolleyes:

Cannot take birth control pills because of too many cancer risks ( familly history of breast cancer ) :rolleyes:
