I'm also taking Spiro - 100 mg right now. Have been for 2 and 1/2 weeks so it's too soon for me to tell anything, but I was wondering a bit about others experiences, also. I believe my problem is hormonal, so I bought a book about hormones. I will read through it and post some of the information I find. I'm 28 and have had acne on and off since puberty. I can't wait until the next "off" . ha ha ha! :) I don't think the bcp I am using is helping me, either, so I am going to call my doctor and try a different one for the next few months. I'm also thinking about getting my hormomes checked to see if there is an imbalance somewhere. The book mentions a few different hormone problems and how to treat them, so it would be good to know exactly how I should be trying to help myself. Well, off to do more research...
: Hi Jo,
: I read in a couple messages below you are currently taking spiro - I was wondering what your dosage is? I
: I've been on Spiro for over a month - I take 150mg a day - but I'm still noticing breakouts along my chin
: jawbone. The breakouts lessen during the 2nd week of the month. I'm probably clear for 3 days out of the month.
: Please let me know how you are doing on the Spiro???
