Yaz possibly causing cystic acne or is it spiro 50mg?

Recommended Posts

I just started Spiro 50mg on Weds. of last week and everything was fine. I started Yaz on Friday and bammm I have a face full of cysts (which I havet gotten since before going on accutane) Is it normal for the Yaz to do this? I went on it before a couple years ago and I remember I broke out in cyts from it but only gave it 2 months and I couldn't handle it anymore Should I wait 3 months even though I never get cysts?? Is it just an initial breakout?? HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was on desogen for 2 years but had to switch because it was making me depressed.

Hi Latoo,

You are probably experiencing an initial breakout from the spironolactone. It sucks, I had the same issue when i started spiro. I've been on yaz for a year, and i don't recall it giving me any acne, tho i don't really see much difference being on it. I've been on spiro for 3 months now, and i'm still having breakouts from it. For some people it worrks pretty quick, others have to wait 5-8 months before they see the full effect from it.
