    good bye to spiro as it caused my cortisol levels to be off the charts, maybe I can help anyone considering this drug (or any other) get your blood work done!!! please have your cortisol checked!

    well it may or not be related to taking spiro...spiro has helped many women with androgenic alopecia, just not me...my dhea levels are very low & cortisol high & I'm having further testing done. I was on spiro 150mg for six months and my shedding never stopped.

    But this is just my experience every woman is different. I'd say give it a try but do have your bloodwork done periodically.
