Aldactone is in a class of drugs called potassium sparing diuretics (water pill). It reduces the amount of fluid in your body without causing the loss of potassium. Aldactone is used for treatment of edema (swelling) and hypertension (high blood pressure). Aldactone is also used to treat potassium deficiency and hyperaldosteronism (a hormonal disorder).
Aldactone comes as a pill to take by mouth. The normal dosage is a pill a day, taken in the morning with a meal or taken 2 times a day with breakfast and lunch. This product doesn`t treat, it only controls blood pressure levels, therefore, continue taking Aldactone even if you feel well. Don't stop taking Aldactone without your doctor`s approval.
Aldactone may also be used in combination with other medicines for treatment of precocious puberty or myasthenia gravis. Aldactone can also be used for curing of female people with abnormal facial hair. Visit your doctor about the possible risks of using this drug for your situation.
