Hi Everyone!!!

So three months ago almost I came on to this website, 1 week on spiro, really struggling with severe cystic acne all over and severe nausea. I have great news!! My pimples/cysts are GONE!!! I still have hyperpigmentation but oh my heck. Its been almost a year since i haven't had painful cysts all over my face! I take 50MG at night time every day. I still have mild nausea but nothing too bad. Keep with it even if you're struggling, I didn't see much progress until the last 2 weeks.

Hi there! I’m so happy for you! Do you mind answering a couple questions? I just started Spironolactone a few days ago at 25mg and will increase to 50mg next week. I’m hoping to not have to go much higher than that to see results. So here are my questions:

1. How did you know that 50mg was right for you?
2. Do you use any other medications?

Thank you in advance! Congrats on your success!

I’ve just been prescribed spiro and I’m honestly so relieved. I have tried everything under the sun besides spiro and accutane so far for my adult hormonal acne and I feel like nothing works.

questions for you:
how old are you and what’s your acne situation?
also, have you noticed a change in your libido since starting the spiro? It’s a bit of a concern for me since I know in the past when I used to take birth control pills I lost my sex drive after being on it for so long... id rather have pimples and a sex drive than no pimples and no sex drive. Lol
