My doc prescribed 100mg but I am only taking 50mg. I may up it though to help with the oil.

Why did you bump it down to 50mg? Was the 100 not working for you anymore? I would continue at the dose that was working for you.

I'm on 50 mg daily and even skip a day sometimes and I am clear besides the occasional small pimple.

for all the responded.. did you guys have cystic acne? i am worried that the spiro will stop working after being on it for over a year. i stopped birth control 3 months ago so i don't know if my body is still adjusting. anyway, i loved the results with spiro and would hate for it to stop working. i will go back to 100 mg a day and see what happens. thanks for your responses.

No, i have mild acne. I don't think the spiro will stop working.

You shouldn't sop the bc pilll while on Spiro. Also, it sounds like it is the combination of bc and spiro that does the trick.

Been on Spiro for about 11 months. Started for the first 5 months on 100-150mg per day. Then after month 6, I only take 100mg once a week and its fine.
