what's the longest anyone has ever been on this medication? how many of you have gained weight (other than breast areas)? compare this drug to Accutane - thoughts?
MOMOFDIXIE you can not compair this to accutane at all... it is in a whole class of itself but yes spironalactone i have seen people on it rugular for 20 years..when i was still working in pharmacy it can not only cause water retention in the breast but hands,feet,joint many places of the body but its real job is to get rid of the water there but others suffer the side effect..so if you are having this call your doctor..right away and see what he/she wants to do... JUST A WARNING NEVER TAKE ACCUTANE WITHOUT THE DOCTOR KNOWING THIS WAS ON THE MARKET FOR 10 YEARS BEFORE THEY FOUND OUT IT WORKED LIKE A ABORTION PILL THAT IS WHY WE NOW HAVE TO CALL IN THE RX TO THE COMPANY THAT MAKES IT AND GIVE THEM A NUMBER ON THIS SPECIAL FORM AND THEY SHIP IT TO US AND KNOW THE PATIENT THAT IS TAKING IT... ITS a great medication for the type of acne its used for but only for the 6 to 8 weeks and the tapes you have to watch etc never get these mixed up..give your doctor a call today please Chuck1957
