Like other medications, spironolactone can cause any number of undesirable side effects that should be reported to a doctor immediately. However, a 2002 study conducted by the University of Toronto on the use of spironolactone to treat acne indicated that of 91 women who were followed over the course of 8 years, none developed a serious health conditions due to spironolactone use. Fifty-nine percent of women reported side effects, mainly irregular menstrual periods and symptoms related to the drug’s diuretic properties. Researchers concluded that spironolactone appears to be a safe long-term treatment for adult acne in women.
For best results, you need to apply argan oil two times daily. Before application, washing the face with a mild soap is very much essential. Coming home from office and straight away applying it on the face that is full of dirt will reduce its effectiveness. So, after cleaning your face, put 2 drops of argan oil onto the palm of your hand. Now, with your hand, massage your face gently. Argan oil has high penetration power and so within no time it would get absorbed by the skin. Using argan oil in the morning and evening (twice daily) is recommended to repair the skin. Generally, a 3-week period of application is required to heal acne completely. However, in some cases one may have to use it for 2 months to cure the skin problem.
Anyway, he said that you have to wait 2 months before it starts to work. I think ive been on it for a month now. No real results, but I have been kinda messed when it comes to stress, excercise, diet, and hygiene lately cuz of exams. But its interesting how such a low dose (relatively) worked well for you. And the speed at which you saw results. Its wierd too cuz i havnet experienced any dry skin like you, and ive been on accutane before (was working great but had to discontinue due to changing countries and the new health care system not prescribing it :( ). So ya, i wonder how much play that L-cartinine stuff has in the mix.
