    I have Roscea & this has helped extremely, I can actually touch my face. However I have no desire for sex, my clitoris actually feels bruised. I don't understand this. Please don't show this on the web. My Dr says this is normal, I want to go off of it cause of that but I don't want my face to look so horrible again. I don't know what else to do.

    I've been using Aldactone for several years for acne w/ great results. Surprised to see so many others have also been prescribed it. Use for acne is never listed as one of its uses in journals and no healthcare professional has heard of this use (except for the one who prescribed it.) Only bad side effect for me is the peeing. Can't take it before road trips and have to get up once during ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this med for almost a year. My acne has decreased dramatically although I get a couple of pimples at that time of the month. I can't think of any side effects I've experienced. I highly recommend it, but keep in mind all drugs work differently on everyone so listen to your body if you have any weird side effects

    For treatment of acne, I have been using a 100mg dose for 7 years. No problem side effects at all. Realize that while the drug does increase urination, you can't skimp on water intake as a way to avoid this! The oil production on my skin is dramatically decreased therefore I my breakouts (mild and cystic) have stopped. I am definitely keeping spiro as part of my anti-acne program.
