Indications for Generic Aldactone

Aldactone or spironolactone is a potassium-sparing diuretic or a water pill which works by preventing your body from absorbing excessive amounts of salt, maintaining your potassium levels and keeping them at a good level.

Aldactone is generally prescribed for the diagnosis or the treatment of a condition which is characterized by having an excessive amount of aldosterone in the body. Aldosterone is a hormone which is produced by the adrenal glands that help in regulating the balance of salt and water in the body.

Aldactone can also help in treating fluid retention or edema in patients who have congestive heart failure, liver cirrhosis and nephrotic syndrome, a liver disorder. Aldactone can also be used for the treatment and prevention of hypokalemia.

Aldactone can also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Important Information about Generic Aldactone

You should not take Aldactone if you have an allergy to spironolactone. Also tell your doctor if you are taking other drugs as there are some which could interact with Aldactone such as lithium, digoxin, steroids, ACE inhibitors and NSAIDs.

You should not use if you have certain medical problems such as kidney disease, having high levels of potassium in the blood and urination problems. Inform your doctor if you have any other medical conditions that you are being treated for. If you have any, your dose may need to be adjusted.

While taking Aldactone, never use potassium supplements and other diuretics, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Also do not use salt substitutes as well as low-sodium milk products which contain potassium.

If you are using Aldactone for the treatment of high blood pressure, continue using it even when you are already feeling fine. This is because high blood pressure usually do not have symptoms.
