Saw Palmetto????

Hi everyone, has anyone (male or female) tried saw palmetto tablets for androgen-driven acne? I have read mixed reviews about it and am keen to hear about any personal experiences anyone has had...

It is similar to spiro, but wayyy less powerful. It will not work for acne. Sorry, but it's the truth.

I was wondering about this too. I've read mixed reviews on it. Some people who have PCOS say it works well for them, others say no - if I decide to give it a try I'll let you know what results I get :)

I've only been on it for 2 weeks. But I have acne that comes mid-cycle. Having a hard time finding people who are the same. Haven't seen any results yet, I don't think.

kristine99...i know you said its only been two weeks but did you see any reduction in sebum and oil production with the saw palmetto? I was on it last year and didnt really stick it out long enough.
