thinking about quitting spiro

Recommended Posts

Hi, guys. I posted about my spiro use a few years ago when I started (I have been on spiro for about 3 years). I have taken 100mg/day for about 2 years, I also use ziana gel (pm), bp gel (am). AND I am now taking 40mg/day of Oracea.

That said, I am still breaking out on a regular basis (all types of breakouts, face/neck/chest). Pretty frustrating. I have decided that I have not seen enough success on the prescription meds, and that maybe I will try again with lifestyle changes & some specialized OTC skincare products (still researching on that).

Anyone quit spiro & have advice? Should I wean down gradually? Should I start vitamins/new cleansers before I quit the spiro?

I have see my derm on a regular basis, but he's pretty blase about it- just a status quo kind of guy, and I am feeling pretty put out with the "take this, come back in 3 months" dance.
