Started Sprio 4 days ago

Recommended Posts


I was on Accutane 4 times and have been in remission for some 5 years

except for the monthly breakouts. Accutance never helped me around

my cycle.

My G.P prescribed 25 mg of Spiro 2 x per day for one week then increasing

to 50 mgs 2 x per day next week. She also added Yazmine but I have to

wait until I cycle again to start that. I have never had to take birth control

because of health reasons after my last child I had a tubal done.

My question is: If I am experiencing the side effects, i.e going to the bathroom

dry lips, tired, does that mean I am already reaping some of the benefits?

Also, any ladies out there break out about day 14 of the cycle? Everything I read

says right before your period you will get hormonal acne, mine is always about

2 weeks before. I hope it's hormonal as I dont think Sprio helps other "generic"


PS Im getting married in 5 weeks, am I insane to start this now and risk a



Past RX: all regularly prescriped antiobiotics. numberous creams, lotions


Current: La Roach Posay gentel cleanser and sunscreen, I have stopped all
