Bumping spiro dosage suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I've been on 50 mg of spiro and the generic of Yaz (Zarah) for two and a half weeks. Thus far, my initial breakout, which started about four or five days in, has been confined to my chin but it is really something awful. Cysts, clusters of red, inflamed acne, clogged pores, whiteheads that don't ever fully form— and new zits pop up all the time. Over night, during work, it's just unpredictable and wrecking all sorts of havoc on my life. My boyfriend got back from a business trip on Sunday, and I've refused to see him. Needless to say, he's not pleased, and neither am I because I can't seem to force myself to just ignore it and go about my life.

Anyway, I wondered if it might help to increase the spiro dosage to 100 mg. For reference, I'm a healthy 23 year old, but I'm small. Five feet, about 95 pounds. Any suggestions would be lovely, and greatly appreciated =)
