    Diane 35 and Aldactone/Spiro

    Another question about Diane 35.. ! Has anyone ever taken D 35 with Aldactone/ Spiro? I am currently taking 100 mg of Aldactone and have been told that it works better with a BC.
    Also, I have heard that Diane 35 is strong for people without severe acne -anyone else heard this?
    My acne is mostly around that time of the month, with one or two large inflamed cysts like pimples that last for almost two weeks.
    If you have used Diane 35 what was your acne like?
    Sorry for all of the questions. Thanks so much for answering!!

    My derm prescribed it for my mild to moderate acne.I don't think Diane-35 is too strong for the less severe cases.I've heard it is for mild to moderate hormonal acne.I hope this helps.

    I'm not on Diane 35 (I'm on Ortho-tricyclen), but I am taking 100mg of spiro. I know that one of the primary side effects of spiro is very irregular cycles, and the pill counteracts that. Diane 35 and ortho both have anti-androgenic properties, which complement what spironolactone is trying to achieve, and I'm sure it will only make your acne better. I read in a research study, though, that only 33% of patients on spironolactone completely clear, while the majority such dramatic improvement.
