Can A Teenager Take Spironolactone?

Recommended Posts

I have pretty mild acne and have exhausted all other methods short of accutane and spironolactone. I'm 18. My face is consistently broken out and I want to know if I can take spironolactone until I may grow out of acne?? I really don't want to go to a doctor about it because I don't want to take antibiotics (unless I for sure get spironolactone) so I'd prefer to get the answer from here and not waste a doc visit.Can an 18 year old take it?? Or is it meant for someone older???

Thanks :)

im 17 and have been on it for a little over 2 months now!

I started at 100mg and now i'm taking 150mg! So far it is going really well!

But the key to this drug is patience! It will definitely be about 3 months till you see good results..perhaps take an antibiotic until the spiro really kicks in?

Let me know what you decide!
