lise on Jul, 14, 2012:
I am a 32 y.o. female and had been on Aldactone for 3 wks for acne. After 3 wks I noticed a great improvement in my acne, but I had a blinding migraine. I have not had a blinding migraine in 1.5 yrs (after I went off of natural progesterone for long periods, which did absolutely nothing for my periods)
I noticed a difference in my menses while on this med. My period was shorter!! However, now that the med is fully 'on-board' I have headaches every day and of course the awful blinding migraine. I will be going off this med unfortunately. I am incredibly bummed.
