blood test/sonagram before Spiro

So Spironolactone is for treating only horomonal acne caused by an excess of aldosterone in the blood stream right?

I'm just wondering if it's not overprescribed?

I had to go for a sonogram and blood test with my GYN BEFORE my dermatologist would put me on it. She wanted a confirmed diagnosis of PCOS (which was confirmed) or a blood test showing that my aldosterone/androgen levels were too high (they were).

I'm just wondering how many of you went through this before you were put on it. I think that maybe the people that aren't seeing results (after a sufficient period) probably don't have acne caused by high aldosterone levels.

** I didn't mean to put this in the logs forum, if someone could move it to the discussion forum for horomonal/BC, I'd apprecaite it**
