on spiro...debating whether to get off to take nsai's..

I have been on Spiro since this past March. While I still have acne, I do think if I get off of it, it will be much worse. I am on 100 mg. I first had joint inflammation in my feet a month and a half or so ago. Taking a doctor's advice, I got off the Spiro for a week and took double the OTC rec'd amount of Aleve. The inflammation in my joints went down, but my skin freaked out worse than ever.

Then my the joints got really inflamed again two weeks ago after too many hours/days of standing up at work. I live in the city and need to walk everywhere, and now it is painful to walk at all...and I had a steroid shot, but that didn't help much. My podiatrist said I had an arthritic condition in my feet (I'm 23) So I'm thinking I'm going to need to get off the Spiro again, and take Aleve? I can't handle my skin getting as bad as it did that time.

Anyone else deal with joint inflammation/arthritis and on Spiro? How have you dealt with it?

Thanks so much in advance...
