I went for my walk and felt really nauseous then vomited twice on my walk - the second time down to the bile.

I was prescribed this medication for my hormone related acne. I have struggled with it my whole life. It is a miracle drug so far and no side effects.

I was given a generic for aldactone 25 mg for acne. I'm almost 62. I found it most helpful. I've been on it for over 2 weeks. I have been crying about 25 times a day over just about anything. I'm emotional anyway, but this is way out of control. Any comments PLEASE. Thanks. It has also softened my facial and leg hair.

This is a fantastic drug. My dermatologist prescribed it to be for hormonal acne as I cannot take birth control (due to a blood clot) and my skin is amazing. I was on the fence about taking a generic form of accutane for my skin, but we tried 25 mg of aldactone twice a day and my skin is now completely clear and flawless! I have had no side effects from this medication and as far as I know it is ... Show Full Comment
