    Question Spiro verses Flutamide for hormonal acne

    I am considering taking an anti-androgen medication to decrease my hormonal acne but do not understand the difference between Spiro and Flutamide. Does anyone know what they are all about? I am very concerned about side affects and want to know if anyone has personal experience.

    I don't really know much of anything about Flutamide, but I've been taking Spiro for about 5 months with no side effects. It cleared up my Acne very quickly too.

    Spiro definitely works for me, but the side effects are so severe (for me) that I cannot take very much. Ataxia/cardio problems - I have lower blood pressure than normal, I think this is why it affects me so much (100/60). Taking 12.5 mg every 2 days now.
