VIDEO: How to use spironolactone safely for acne


 

AT THE AAD ANNUAL MEETING

SAN FRANCISCO – The room was packed for a talk about spironolactone and acne at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology.

Several dozen people were turned away at the door because there weren’t any seats left. Dermatologists have heard that the drug is a good option for adult women, but they’ve also heard about potential problems with spironolactone, and – as the turnout shows – they want to know the bottom line.

One of the speakers, Dr. Julie Harper of the University of Alabama in Birmingham, explained when and how to use spironolactone in an interview after the session.
