Spiro users... Long Term Use@@@
 
For all the people out there taking spiro, how long do you plan being on it. I have been on it over a year and I absolutely love it but was wondering how long I can stay on it. Please give me feedback on how long you have been on it and what your doc says about long term use. It worries me that it could damage my body but I love the results. Thanks

I've been on it for about three months and love the results, too. I'm taking 50mg / day. I don't know how long I'm supposed to be on it. I guess until my doctor says so. I'm not aware of any negative long-term side-effects for women, but I imagine that one must always be careful.

I have been on it 11 months and also love the results. In fact now, I only have 100 mg once a week or something and its fine.

I have been on it for 3 weeks. I am using it for oil reduction. How long til I see full results and the oil slows down?? I am taking 50 mg a day.

Also, what, if anything, should you avoid while taking it???

Tks,

Are you all ladies and are you also on birth control pills? Any side effects? I read a post somewhere where someone broke out on spiro and that scared me. Still contemplating this for my 16 yo dd. We have a GP appointment early in Feb.
