    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.

    Therapeutic actions:
    Aldactone is a potassium-sparing diuretic. It works by blocking the hormone aldosterone, causing the kidney to eliminate excess water, save potassium, and lower blood pressure.

    What is it used for?:
    - Treating swelling and fluid retention inpatients with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis, or kidney problems (nephrotic syndrome).
    - Treatment of high blood pressure.
    - To treat or prevent low blood potassium.
    - To treat excess secretion of the hormone aldosterone by the adrenal gland.

    Contraindications and cautions:
    - allergy to any ingredient in Aldactone;
    - difficulty of urination, severe kidney problems, or high blood potassium levels;
    - taking a potassium supplement, another potassium-sparing diuretic (eg, amiloride, triamterene), or another aldosterone-blocker (eg, eplerenone);
    - pregnancy;
    - breast-feeding;

    Side effects:
    Possible side effects of ALDACTONE include:
    - cramping or diarrhea;
    - nausea or vomiting;
    - headache;
    - leg cramps;

    Interactions:
    - other medicines used to treat high blood pressure, including ACE inhibitors;
    - diuretics, which are fluid removing medicines also known as water tablets;
    - digoxin, a medicine used to treat heart conditions;
    - potassium supplements or potassium-containing salt substitutes;
    - cholestyramine, a medicine used to lower cholesterol levels in the blood;
    - ammonium chloride, which is contained in some cough and cold medicines;
    - aspirin;
