Aldactone 100 mg 30 Tabs, Spironolactone
THIS IS THE BRAND MEDICATION
What is spironolactone? Spironolactone is a potassium-sparing diuretic (water pill) that prevents your body from absorbing
too much salt and keeps your potassium levels from getting too low. Spironolactone is used to diagnose or treat a condition in which you have too much aldosterone in your body.
Aldosterone is a hormone produced by your adrenal glands to help regulate the salt and water balance in your body. Spironolactone also treats fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure,
cirrhosis of the liver, or a kidney disorder called nephrotic syndrome. This medication is also used to treat or prevent hypokalemia (low potassium levels in the blood). Spironolactone may also be used for purposes other than those listed
in this medication guide.
