I've been taking this for the treatment of my acne. It got rid of almost all of it. I'm very pleased with it. The only side effect that I had was that I went up 2 bra cup sizes.

Prescribed for hirsutism due to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). After I stopped taking it, hirsutism got worse, foot and leg pain and swelling developed, acne developed. However, after stopped taking it, had weight gain and adrenal levels lower - shouldn't it have been the opposite?

I am writing this for my girlfriend of 10 years who started taking this drug about 3 weeks ago. Over the last four days her behavior has become nothing short of psychotic. She has attacked me physically, she is convinced I am having multiple affairs and she cries hysterically. And she completely denies that this drug has anything to do with her behavior change. What the heck should I do?

When I first started taking this med. it was awful. It must have been the drug company but it smelled and tasted like skunk. I recently switched to a different store and it now smells/tastes like breath mints. I take it for hirsutism, and it started working soon after. However I have now been on this constantly for six months and I still have to shave almost daily.
