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 handling 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 orally. The normal dosage is a pill a day, taken in the morning with food intake or taken two times a day with breakfast and lunch. This medicine does not cure, it only controls blood pressure levels, therefore, continue taking Aldactone even if you feel well. Do not stop taking Aldactone without your doctor`s advice.
Aldactone may also be used in combination with other products for treatment of precocious puberty or myasthenia gravis. Aldactone can also be used for treatment of female people with abnormal facial hair. Contact your physician about the possible risks of using this pill for your situation.
