Abstract

According to this study:

 

* Spironolactone, an effective and inexpensive treatment for hormonally mediated acne, is safe for healthy women to use without being monitored for hyperkalemia.

 

* Of 1,802 serum potassium measurements that were obtained, only 13 (0.72%) indicated hyperkalemia-and all 13 cases were mild.
