I was on spironolactone and birth control for a while, and my skin was so clear! With my monthly facials, I would get maybe one or two pimples the week before my period and that’s it. I thought I had beaten acne and it felt great!
Then I started feeling a little weird. I’d get heart palpitations, felt dehydrated all the time despite drinking tons of water, get super dizzy when standing up, always felt tight in my legs and just generally weak. One day, I just got sick of feeling this way and started looking into the medications I was taking.
