Questions about spironolactone.

My 26 yr old daughter has been taking Spirolactone 100mgs for acne for almost two years and it has been a miracle for her skin. She had tried everything with no results,so this has been great. She glows now. My question for you is..is this safe long term like and how long should she wait after getting off before becoming pregnant? Thanks for your answer.

These are all good questions and you are a very nice mom for caring so much about your daughter, but she really needs to ask her doctor these questions herself!  Have her make an appointment and and a list to take in with her. Then she’ll feel confident she won’t forget them.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
