checking back- 2 1/2 years on spiro, still fighting acne

Recommended Posts

Hi. I have been meaning to get back to the site to update. I started spiro in Sept. 07, have taken 100 mg/day since June 08. I also used ziana gel at night and topical bp when needed. I am still experiencing breakouts regularly- especially around my period. My derm just added oracea (40mg) to my routine. I have seen some improvements (it's been almost 1 month) but am still not clear. I don't really have any advice or questions, just wanted to share. It is so frustrating to be 35 & be embarrassed to go out due to zits. :(

I hear ya! I'm 32 and I'm dreading my kids' school Valentine parties today where I'll have to face all the porcelained-skinned moms with my own pizza face. Why oh why do we have to deal with this after the teen years?! Anyhow, I hope your new routine works!! :)
