Acne

Acne

Does anyone have a specific brand of Birth control they use for acne. I was prescribed reclipsen I believe 20-25mg. But it does not work. I believe I need something different or stronger. Can you let me know what brands used and dosage if possible?

I took Diane-35 for years which really helped with my cystic acne, however I would still break out about once or twice a month, just little pimples. Then I switched to Spironolactone and I have not broken out since. It's a miracle drug for hormonal acne. I am currently weaning myself off of it because I want to get pregnant. Started at 200mg and am currently down to 75mg, still with amazingly clear skin! Hairloss is my issue at the moment :( ugh!
