Transgendered Care: I wish i knew where you were and what doses you are on. Your treatment is very different than what I am used to in the United States. Aldactone is being used as a testosterone blocker. It is not very powerful, but drugs like it are always part of the regimen when one is transitioning gender. ...Read more

Experienced hairloss/thinning & cystic acne. Taking ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) & spironolactone 25mg. Acne under control not thinning. Can i switch vitex for ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?

Experienced hairloss/thinning & cystic acne. Taking ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) & spironolactone 25mg. Acne under control not thinning. Can i switch vitex for ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?

NO: Ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is a birth control pill which helps acne. Vitex is of no value ; is sold with false claims to take advantage of people: it will do nothing for acne ; it will not prevent pregnancy. The usual dose of spironolactone for acne is 50- 100 mg, sometimes 200mg. You will see improvement after 3 menst periods. Hair loss might improve with larger dose of spironolactone. See a dermatologist for help w. ...Read more

9 weeks postpartum, started ortho tricyclen + aldactone (spironolactone) (acne). Stopped both bc of vertigo/extreme dizziness. Hormone related? When will it stabilize?
