  1. Hello everyone. i got on Spiro in late April and was given 100 mg and now I take 150mg. The first two months were hard because of the outbreaks but come June my face was not bumpy. i still get the occasional bump/pimple but (only like one every so often) and it goes away right away. I no longer get pimples, bumps and red spots above my lip, chin and cheeks. I still use the Benzaclin in the am (for bumps, if I have them) and Tazarac at night. Don't forget your SPF during the day. Keep
  2. It's been a while since I posted but I have been on Spiro for 3 months and my face is no longer a problem. I can walk outside with no makeup and not feel embarrassed. It helps that it's the summer time and so I am able to tan and so the tan helps too but my spots are slowly going away and I have no bumps. It's awesome. Spiro works! The first month is probably the hard, 2nd month is better with small suprises and then you will feel very clear by the 3rd month. I'm so glad I stuck it out.
  3. Changing doctors really helped me. I was on the same treatment with my last doctor for almost 2 years and it just was working for me anymore so I decided to see a female derm and she helped me. I had a bad initial breakout but it's going on 3 weeks, (going on 10 weeks) and I've seen great results. I did get some small pimples when it was period time and my doc told me I can go up to 200mg of Spiro the week before or I can take 150 mg a day instead of my 100 mg. I remember a time when my uppe

  5. I have been on spiro 9 weeks tomorrow and I will tell you all "stay with it". I take my pill in the morning and I now have Benzaclin that I can put on my bumps in the am and Tazarac at night (which peels my skin). However, I haven't had a cyst/bump in a week and that was only 1 last week. My face looks soooo much better, it's amazing. I was able to not freak out on my birthday which was yesterday. I put my makeup, of course to cover the spots but otherwise I felt really good about it. I to
  6. Another update from me. It's been a week since I last posted. So I have only had one little bump/cyst since last week. My face has been acting really good. I even got a facial yesterday to get the surface dirt (whitehead and blackheads that have come from the medication) off my face and it looks much cleaner. I didn't want to get a facial for a long time because I had painful cysts that I didn't want any looking at let alone touching. Facials are helpful to me but I really wanted to get t
  7. Hello everyone! It's the day of my close friend's wedding and I have no bumps. The bumps I had have gone down. I feel like I have one coming in but I can tell it's not going to be one of those big ones. I still have my dark spots but luckily I can cover them up with makeup. I just hope my face keeps clearing up so that way i can work on the marks. I'm alittle self conscious of wearing my hair up today but I asked my roommate several times and she swears that with the makeup you can't te
  8. I just tried the website and it worked so that's great! THANKS ktgrl130!
  9. 100mg of spiro and it will be 7 weeks tomorrow and my face looks somewhat better. I was excited to only have 2 bumps and then today I got another 3 so total 5 all in the upper lip, under lip area! I also had two little pimples yesteday but they are gone now. Everything else looks ok except for that. I hate it! I just start using the Benzaclin in the am and will continue Tazarac at night so will see if this looks better by Sunday. I have a wedding that day and I want decent skin! My period or sp

  11. i was reading your logs and i'm very glad things are looking brighter. i know how you feel and i too am in a treatment and slowly waiting for things to get better and they are so that's a great feeling. hang in there and we will have great skin this summer!
  12. My period was normal the first month and now it's goofy but I'm going to wait another month and see. THANKS! So i currently have 2 bumps and very little comodones (about 3-4) that are not super noticeable on my cheeks. If I can get these 2 bumps down, I will feel better. I have a wedding on Sunday and it's outdoors and I really don't want to worry about BUMPS! However, I am seeing a difference in my skin but I'm scare of another outbreak. I was reading up on the Benzaclin and read it was
  13. Has anyone gotten double periods? I got my period twice in May. Then I stopped yesterday and then started up today but it may just be spotting. Has anyone experienced this?
  14. My dermi told me to take my dose in the morning so that it didn't affect me during the night. Every doc is diff and luckily it wasn't a big deal during the day. Try it out for a week and if it is bad, call her doc and she what he/she says.
  15. Hey ktgrl130! I went to see my dermi today. She told me to stay on the Spiro and that she believes the next time I see her (4 weeks from today), I will feel different. She almost guarantees me that it will be better and if it's not, she will take another route. She did, however, prescribe me another topical,Benzaclin which i'm suppose to store in the fridge and use in the am. She said that will dry out the bumps even more along with Tazarac at night. Tazarac is pretty good. It definitely p
