Aldactone 

Indication

Aldactone (Spironolactone) belongs to the class of medications known as diuretics (water pills). It is used to treat edema (fluid retention) that occurs with Congestive Heart Failure, cirrhosis of the liver, and nephrotic syndrome. It is also used to treat high blood pressure and to diagnose and treat primary hyperaldosteronism (a condition where too much aldosterone is produced by the adrenal glands).

Aldactone (Spironolactone) can also be used to treat or prevent hypokalemia (too little potassium in the body) when other methods are not appropriate. Aldactone (Spironolactone) works by making the body lose excess water and salt but reduces the loss of potassium from the body.

Aldactone (Spironolactone) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Aldactone (Spironolactone) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Aldactone (Spironolactone) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Aldactone (Spironolactone) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Aldactone (Spironolactone), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Aldactone (Spironolactone) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Aldactone (Spironolactone) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Aldactone (Spironolactone) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Aldactone 

Dosage

The recommended dose of Aldactone (Spironolactone) for adults ranges from 25 mg to 400 mg daily depending on the condition being treated. It may be taken in single or divided doses. For children with edema (fluid retention) associated with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, or nephrotic syndrome, the daily dose is based on body weight and is given in single or divided doses. Since Aldactone (Spironolactone) increases urine output, it is better to take it early in the day (with breakfast if you are taking a once-daily dose, or with breakfast and lunch if you are taking divided doses). Aldactone (Spironolactone) may be taken with or without food. If stomach upset occurs, take the medication with food. Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor. It is important that Aldactone (Spironolactone) be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice. Store Aldactone (Spironolactone) at room temperature, protect it from heat and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
