General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Spironolactone & daily UTI
My dermatologist prescribed 100 mg Spiro daily about 3 weeks ago for adult acne... yes, 54 years old and still get regular breakouts :-(

Right away I started experiencing UTIs almost daily. So now taking 100 mg Macrobid (already had some as I'm prone to UTIs anyway) daily to counteract and at least be comfortable.
Will contact the Dr. on Monday and see if she has any other options.
