Just wanted to drop by and share my experience with spiro. I’m 34 female who has been struggling with hormonal acne on my jawline(big cysts) on and off for years. I was nervous and skeptical about going on spiro for years despite being told my multiple dermatologists that’s what I needed to be on. I was scared of having an initial breakout and the hormonal changes it would bring.

I had read many negative experiences on this site as well that made me delay going on it until 7 months ago when I felt like I had tried everything else except accurate. I spent thousands of dollars seeing a naturopath, multiple diet changes, supplements, antibiotics, millions of topicals. 

So in May I finally went on it, started with 25 mg a day and worked up to 100 mg a day. I never had an initial breakout, but it definitely took two full months before I noticed any improvement. I’m not sure if I had started with 100 mg if I would have noticed an improvement sooner. Finally in July of this year I was only left with hyperpigmentation and now my skin is 98% clear except for 2-3 pimples when I get my period. 

If you’re like me and have tried everything else, maybe just give it a go! I regret not trying it sooner!!CEF7E3F1-7FAC-40E3-9E0D-C7CECA1ADD7A.thumb.jpeg.5d4f38527e78e37fbabf71c49e7ed6e5.jpeg3B07BD06-00CF-4CE0-84C0-07D621412CE5.thumb.jpeg.e83e3a9d633dd7f5c962e6d5f2025b05.jpeg69C30959-8B9D-4EE5-825B-705DF4460358.thumb.jpeg.5b5ecca657257db2ef9a294a51b072a1.jpeg51A7FBA8-49EC-4F57-9870-965EBF27947A.thumb.jpeg.f783eea26aae51536201792da1763fd1.jpeg

Wow, your skin looks amazing! :smileys_n_people_11:

Is spironalactone as harsh as (ro)accutane/isotretinoin and does it make break-outs stay away?
