Birth control and Spironolactane

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm new to this website and like most of you have tried MANY different meds, lotions, creams, etc. I was prescribed accutane, but decided to try spironolactone first. Does anyone know if you have to be on BC with this med, or what the difference is if you arn't? I've read a lot of peoples posts that they loved spironolactone, but are the results just as good without BC? Can't seem to find a answer.

Hi! I've been taking spiro without birth control for almost 5 months now! It's been amazing on my skin. Right now, I have no active pimples, compared to the 20+ at a time I had prior to taking spiro. Sure, I still have some clogged pores and red marks left from acne, but compared to how my skin was previously, this is perfection!! Give it a go!

Moved to the Hormonal Treatments board.

The Announcements And Feedback board is for discussing technical issues on the boards, not for acne- or treatment-related posts. ; )
