What is Aldactoneis?

Aldactoneis a water pill (potassium-sparing diuretic) that regulates the body’s potassium level by preventing it from absorbing too much salt. In doing so, Aldactone prevents the body’s potassium levels from getting too low.

Additionally, Aldactone is used to diagnose or treat the condition of too much aldosterone in the body. Aldosterone is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands to help regulate the salt and water balance in the body.

Finally, Aldactone also treats fluid retention (edema) in people who suffer from congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, or a kidney disorder called nephrotic syndrome.

Important Information

Below are a number of key points you should consider before taking Aldactone. As with all prescription drugs, consult a medical professional prior to starting to take Aldactone.

Do not use Aldactone if you suffer from kidney disease, urination problems, or have high levels of potassium in your blood.

If you are taking Aldactone, do not use potassium supplements or other diuretics.

Be sure to tell your doctor if you use a steroid or another diuretic before using this medication.

Avoid drinking alcohol, which can increase some of the side effects of Aldactone.

Too much salt will cause your body to retain water and can make this medication less effective so avoid foods high in sodium.

Do not use salt substitutes or low-sodium milk products that contain potassium. These products could cause your potassium levels to get too high while you are taking Aldactone.

Avoid becoming overheated or dehydrated during exercise and in hot weather. Follow your doctor's instructions about the type and amount of liquids you should drink.

If you are being treated for high blood pressure, keep using this medication even if you feel fine.

What should I know before taking Aldactone?

Below are guidelines you should follow when taking Aldactone:

Take Aldactone exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take the medication in larger amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your doctor.

You should take each dose with a full glass of water.

In order to verify that the Aldactone is not causing harmful bodily effects, you should have your blood tested regularly by your doctor.

Inform your doctor before any medical test that you are taking Aldactone. This drug can cause unusual results with certain tests.

It may be required for you to stop taking Aldactone prior to surgery. Tell your surgeon before any procedure that you are on the medication.

Store this medication at room temperature away from heat, light, and moisture.

Avoid drinking alcohol, which can increase some of the side effects of Aldactone.

Avoid a diet high in salt. Too much salt will cause your body to retain water and can make this medication less effective.


The active ingredient in Aldactone tablets is spironolactone.

How it Works

Aldactone acts by working against a hormone called aldosterone. Too much aldosterone causes increased amounts of sodium and water to be retained by the kidneys, while too much potassium is removed from the body. Aldactone works against the effects of aldosterone.

Possible side effects of Aldactone (Spironolactone)

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Stop using this medication and call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:

  • muscle pain or weakness;
  • slow, fast, or uneven heartbeat;

  • dizziness, headache;
  • gas, stomach pain; or
  • skin rash.
