Question Back to Spiro...

Hey. Just was thinking how frustrated I am by my acne. I am on Retin-A .1% and using a 2.5% BP with little success. I mean I still can't wear a short sleeved shirt- I have body acne especially on my arms! I am calling the Derm today to get her opinion on Spiro since my regular doctor thought it would be far better to ruin the entire physiology of my body by putting me on antibiotics (which didn't do anything, by the way) rather than try Spiro. He said the side effects were too extreme (facial hair, deepening of voice, etc). I know I have asked this before...but has anyone had any experience with this and/or side effects while on it?

Re: Back to Spiro...

I am on spiro for the second time in about 3 years and I have never had any side effects except clearer skin!
