Spironolactone initial breakout?

Recommended Posts

I started taking 50 mg for my acne about a week and a half ago. I have mild acne but I haven’t been able to get rid of it with topicals so derm suggested spiro. I noticed I got a few zits before my period which was more than normal but nothing too bad. I notice now that I have a bunch of clogged pores all over my face except my nose (the tiny bumps that you can’t pop) I’ve always had a few but it’s worse than normal and I was wondering if this could be from the spironolactone because I thought it would just give me actual pimples if it were an initial breakout. Please let me know your experiences with spironolactone for your acne and if it worked for your non hormonal acne as well, thanks!
