Wanting to on my own change my dosage of spiro, need advice

I am on 100 mg a day of Spironolactone and I want to go down to 50mg a day. Can I do this without seeing my derm? Like rather than take one 50mg pill twice a day can I just take one a day? Or is this kind of medication more effective if taken twice a day?

Self-medicating by messing with the dosage of any medication, whether you want to take less or more, is a bad idea. Talk to your doctor about it before making any changes.
