Is it fine to take spironolactone while planning to get pregnant or being pregnant?

No, it is not safe in pregnancy

No, this tablet is not safe in pregnancy. For acne treatment in pregnancy a combination of light - LED, clindatech, or erythromycin topically plus natural supplements is the safest. Don't forget to eat well, and use good skin care. See a dermatologist for advice. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
