List Of Doctors Who Prescribe Spironolactone

17 posts in this topic

I am compiling a list of doctors who prescribe spironolactone for acne. If you have received a spironolactone prescription, PLEASE share their name and the state/province they are located in.

The only reason I was able to get spironolactone prescribed is because I happened to know someone already on it and went to their doctor. We really need to get the information out there so it is not such a struggle.

If you don't want to publicly announce your doctor, PM me the doctor's name and location, and I will add them to this list without any link to you personally.

Also, many of the acne procedures are covered under many insurance plans.... all of my acne facials (cleansing, extractions, masks, chemical peels, and cyro) are covered - I just pay my small co pay

Thank GOD for her. she's been so liberal and open with my treatment. Went in prepared and asked for it. I am only on 50 mg and Yasmin together, but am ok with the low dose. Yasmin cleared me up about 90-95% before so hoping the two together will really do the trick.

12/30/2013- Started Spironolactone 50mg then up to 75mg with Yas
2/2015 stopped BCP due to Aphasia/Migraines
2/2015 Spiro upped  to 100mg no BCP
1/2016 Spiro upped  to 125mg no BCP

2/2016- starting Berberine 500mg 3x day

I came across this forum because I am looking for a derm in the Houston, Texas area who will prescribe. I went on accutane and it helped temporarily but my very clearly hormonal acne is now back in full force and the derm I had said he hadn't even heard of prescribing spiro for acne (he's pretty old school). I do happen to know that a friend was prescribed spiro at K Street Dermatology in Washington DC.
