Spironolactone and WORSE PMS?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I started taking spironolactone for hormonal acne (25 mg, 2x a day) about 3 weeks ago. I read about a lot of women experiencing lighter periods on this drug (which I thought would be an extra benefit though my periods are normal). The first period I had on this drug I had the WORSE PMS mood issues of my entire life. I cried for an entire day and wanted to lock myself in my room. 1 minute I was happy, the next I was freaking out over something stupid. When my period ended, so did the moodiness/PMS. 

Anyone else have this? It's not bad enough to stop the drug... I was just curious.
