So I purchased Spironolactone this past week to treat my IH.
I am so excited and I cannot wait for it to arrive!
No I did not get mine through an endocrinologist. I cannot see a dermatologist without a referral and my general practitioner will not give me one. So i decided to take matters into my own hands and purchased the generic version from a pharmacy online.
I know some folks may be wary of getting medicine online but I purchases generic Vaniqa from online since the prescription Vaniqa became entirely too expensive for me.
So yes, I am giving it a shot again!
For the record, I do NOT recommend this method to get medication, but when you are desperate for treatment options you will do darn near anything.
I will do my very best to document pics, exactly when I remove my hair and how, as well as multiple check ups and doctor’s visits just to ensure my blood levels are fine.
Apparently some side effects to spironolactone are few, but high potassium and fertility issues are some of the major side effects.
I will also document other medications that I will be taking to be done with hirsutism for EVER!!! (God willing!)
Thanks for reading!
