My dermatologist prescribed 100mg once daily for acne. I've only been taking this for a week or so, so I've not noticed any improvement yet. The reason I came to this site was to check side effects--It seems to be affecting my period in that I am still having mild spotting 1 week after my period usually stops.

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.
