Post spiro users

how hard was it to get a prescription from your derm? did you have to see a general practicioner as well? did he/she make you see an endocrinologist? do you have to have regular bloodwork done? also, i'm very interested in hearing from those of you in the US.. I really want to ask my derm for a prescription but i fear all the hoops i'm going to have to go through to get it...thanks

I was prescribed spiro by an endo...but I never asked my derm for it so I'm not sure whether he'd have given it to me. I did have one blood test done a couple of months after starting the spiro but the doc said it was up to me whether I had it and I haven't needed any since. I definitely think any spiro hassles are worth it though.
