(I have tried everything under the sun, including Accutane several times, and nothing compares to Spiro). However, recently my kidney function came back low. My doctor told me to stop taking Spiro for a month, get more blood work done, and then we would take treatment from there. It's been three weeks and my acne is back with a vengeance! If I can't get back on Spiro, any suggestions for successful treatment of hormonal acne? Please help!
I took doxycycline for nearly 7 years and it worked very well for me. Whatever the reason, my derm put me on minocycline after and that worked even better. I started developing hyper pigmentation after so many years so she took me off it and put me back on doxy, which is no longer as effective as I once experienced. I am not on sprio but I haven't seen promising results after 6 months of use and I'm shedding my hair like crazy. Antibiotics have always worked for me in the past so that may be an avenue to explore.
