Q & A
the Young TS
A reader asks...
One thing I'm curious
about. The aldactone. I've been at this process for so long and no one
has ever mentioned the benefits and I surely need relief from a hairy
body. Is there any way these pills can be gotten except by
prescription? Please advise.
I don't recommend taking anything
without prescription. As for Aldactone, I don't recommend it at all. I
took it for about six months and feel that it permanently dried out my
body. The effect was most noticeable in the skin, which began to look
"oldish". Spiroaldactone is a diuretic used for high blood
pressure. Potential body hair loss is a side effect, but the primary
effect is still working. I had minor relief from body hair (nothing
major) but the side effects were enough to make me stop taking it,
though I think the bad effects lingered.
