I have been taking spironolactone for nearly 6 months now, at first i didnt
think it was going to work as i was still experincing hard cysts on my
But then they started to go down, i never had really oily skin but since
coming off the pill i started to experience these hard lumps on my head that if
you squeezed NEVER popped but got BIGGER and hurt like hell.
But thats when i read about spiro cyclone my doctor wasnt keen on putting
me on it and said you may get hair loss and other side effects due to
decrease in pottasium levels.
Well all has been really good however, I have noticed my hair is thinning and
havent got as much hair around my hair line.
I have looked everywher online ot see if anyone else has experienced this
probelm but none has and if anything i have found alot of people recommend
it for HELPING HAIR LOSS.
But why is mine then falling out?? I hope someone can help me.
