Reading your other posts Susannah, I get the impression you may not have gotten the Spiro from a doctor. I understand that you are not in a position to transition. If your taking Spiro without a transition plan and no medical doctor is supervising your use of these medications, you are doing harm to your body and I would suggest stop and do not proceed experimenting with transitional medications.
Actually, my doctor prescribed spironolactone for blood pressure medication. I do have hypertension and have taken BP medicine for a long time. Because of recent medicine recalls, she suggested spironolactone which I agreed. Unfortunately, I had bad side effects. Obviously, spironolactone as an AA was not the intended purpose though.
