Customer Question
Everything I've read online...

Everything I've read online says for acne, you would take the dosage one time per day. My prescription is for 100mg twice daily. Will this affect anything splitting up the dosage? I've actually only been taking 100m once daily, because I was unsure about the higher dosage and a little nervous with the tumor ratings. Want to be sure I'm not taking too high of dosage. ;)

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

No, I just take it once per day and have been doing so for a little over a month now.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, nothing I can think of.

What's the medication you're referring to--doxyxycline?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No, Spironolactone.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 4 months ago

OK

The usual dosage is 100 mg once a day but up to 200 mg a day can be prescribed

But no harm with splitting up the dosage

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
