I have been taking aldactone 50 mg a day for almost 3 months for acne. I have noticed some improvement, however, I thought I would have fewer breakouts. I have noticed that I've almost gained 10 pounds without changing anything in my daily diet and exercise routine? Will the extra pounds be lost once my body adjusts or will I continue to gain more weight the longer I take the drug? I want clear skin, but not at the cost of a nice figure I've worked hard on!
I wish my Dr told me that weight gain was a side effect. Gained about 10 pounds in about 3-4 months. I have been off the medication for 3 months now. Good news is you stop gaining any more weight, Bad news is despite working out religiously and eating nothing but broccoli and chicken haven't lost a single pound. This weight is stubborn, and it's all in the wrong places, I have a gut(never had one) it does not budge despite 100's of crunches every day, my thighs are heavier so clothes don't fit. Believe me nothing about this weight gain feels comfortable. I feel bloated and growing hopeless with every passing day, I haven't had bread or processed carbs in months but nothing changes. I feel like giving up but I know it will come off one day !!
