Twice Minocycline, Thrice Accutane and now Spiro

Recommended Posts


So it would appear that I have one of the worlds most stubborn cases of acne. I am a male and merely 18 years old and have already spent a cumulative time of 20 months on accutane (three courses, each at 60mg/day), years on minocycline, Retin-A gel and countless other products and am now faced with taking Spiro.

Contrary to popular belief when people here this, my acne is terrible. I've had maybe one or two cysts in my life. Albeit not severe, it is stubborn. I have been through lifestyle changes, multiple dermatologists, four family doctors.

My acne has returned once again, and this time I was recommended a small dose, 25mg, of spiroaldactone. I was wondering what males have experience with this drug and whether or not the majority of people experience initial breakouts on it? The first course of accutane i experienced no I.B., but the second and third I did.
