Want To Come Off Dianette After 11 Years

Recommended Posts


Please can someone help me?

I'm 28, live in England and have had acne extremely well controlled for 11 years with Dianette (also known as Diane 35). Before this I tried topical and oral antibiotics with no luck. I'm finally taking the risks of Dianette seriously and want to come off it. But i'm scared of having the acne come back. I've tried to come off before but my skin got worse so I went back on Dianette again. I haven't talked to my GP for a decade - i've just had repeat prescriptions and that GP has gone now so I doubt anyone else will prescribe it to me now.

I'm willing to see a private Dermatologist although that's obviously not my preferred option as it is so expensive. I don't want to try Accutane as I value other aspects of my health too highly to take the risk. I've read on here about Spiro and think that in combination with an oral contraceptive, this could really work for me. What do you think?

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance x
