  1. Hi skiergirl! Although I'm not a doctor, I am a nursing student and can tell you that light headedness can be a side effect alone of taking spironolactone.

They all worked...but temporarily. I am in the middle of the second week of Acnepril, taking 4-6 capsules a day. I notice a huge difference in the texture of my skin, but I guess all the "toxins" in my body are coming out now through my skin because I am breaking out. The break outs however are very small and
