Been dealing with hormonal acne since I hit adulthood. Started spiro 100mg/day on 12/19/17. Some dry mouth. Drier skin than normal, but not noticeable after moisturizing. Few days of mild breast tenderness that resolved. No dizziness, fatigue, hair loss.
I wanted to share this before/after for those struggling w hormonal acne. Spironolactone was a godsend for me. Did accutane twice and it didn’t work— tried every topical remedy you can think of.

When I first started writing this post at the beginning of the summer, I was in the throes of the initial breakout caused by starting topical retinoids.
