I only ever get acne when I am on birth control. When I go off of it my face completely clears up no bumps anywhere. But since I have an IUD I cannot seem to escape it now. Apparently, I am very sensitive to the progesterone. Ahywho, I started taking this med about a week and a half ago and it has been great for me. Ive noticed that my skin has become less oily. I still have some oiliness, but I feel that gradually it will start to become less of an issue for me and the makeup I wear.

I have had no real side effects except for slight head aches and having to urinate more than usual. Outside of that I have had no problem with the med. The only thing that really makes me a little weary is the build up of potassium in my system. It suggested that the doc check your potassium levels once a month. Has anyone heard of this before?

Time will tell if this med really works long term.
