Aldactone – (Spironolactone) – Information, Dosage, Cost without insurance

December 22, 2020

Spironolactone rids the body of excess fluid by making the kidneys produce a larger amount of urine. This makes it a diuretic drug. Some diuretic drugs lower the body’s potassium levels, but spironolactone is potassium-sparing, meaning that it does not do this, and is sometimes to treat low potassium, although that is not its main function. It is primarily used in cases of congestive heart failure, in which the heart has too much fluid to pump, cirrhosis of the liver, in which fluid backs up because blood cannot circulate through the liver, and kidney disease. It is also given to patients whose adrenal glands make too much of the hormone aldosterone, because it works by blocking aldosterone. Like all diuretics, it is also prescribed to treat high blood pressure. The less fluid the heart has to pump, the less pressure it needs to push the blood through the vessels.
