Thyroid medication and acne

Recommended Posts

Hello i am wondering if anyone has gotten acne since starting thyroid medications?? I started armour thyroid 30mg august 6th and brokeout a week later then it went away (also on minocycline at the time) then i got pregnant at end of august and the acne continued to get worse... then when i was 12 weeks pregnant they increased my dosage to 45mg and the acne got put of control and terrible cystic nodules and oily... then the acne got a little better when lowering my dosage again but still very much there... anyone have luck when switching meds or anything?? I have hasimotos but i dont want to deal with the acne! Id rather go off meds after the baby... i also want to try spiro since my skin is so oily abd an hoping that will counteract the thyroid med acne?

I have had the same issue. Synthroid and Naturethoid caused my acne. I did not make the connection at first, because I was going through a lot of changes. I am curious if it's the dosage or the type of medication.
