    Re: Spiro cured my acne

    Spiro cures acne/oily skin because of diuretic effects, it has nothing to do with antiandrogenic properties. Now before you say otherwise, I hope you have evidence to the contrary. Also, birth control pills contain a ton of progesterone which is of course a natural diuretic. But docs should not be playing around with artificial diuretics, it is very unhealthy, imo. Just go out and exercise and get fit.

    Look, I know it has antiandrgenic properties. Where am I arguing with that? But it is not that which reduces acne in people. Of course, this would be considered heresy but I DID ask you to provide with exemplary evidence to the contrary. Simply stating that it was fixed because of hormonal effects is just not good enough. I have seen far too many cases where personnel with perfectly normal hormones get magically cured by Spiro or others in a very short time period. Sorry.

    I am just trying to help people. Nothing to fight about.

    Arelias, You will begin to clear up in time. Drink lots of water too so you stay hydrated.

    Sorry, I just saw this. She hasn't cleared yet. It's been about 3-4 weeks on all three cause the Bactrim got added about June 6 or so. Trying to be patient but I am not good at that.

    Just Drink a lot of water(as one should while taking all three drugs of yours). Make sure the frequency between urination is 30-60minutes. And drink after each urination. Try it, it is noninvasive and effortless.

    Are you saying this will cure the acne even if not taking meds or just help the meds to work better? She has to drink a lot due to the insane thirst. I find the 1.5 L empty bottles everywhere.

    Well, in your daughter's case, this would make the drugs more effective and would cease any long term complications conditioned by the drugs.
