Aldactone is in a class of medications called potassium sparing diuretics (water pill). It reduces the amount of fluid in your body without causing the loss of potassium. Aldactone is usually 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 tablet a day, taken in the morning with a meal or taken 2 times a day with breakfast and lunch. This drug does not cure, it only controls blood pressure levels, consequently, continue taking Aldactone even if you feel better. Do not stop taking Aldactone without your physician`s advice.
Aldactone may also be used in combination with other medicines for treatment of precocious puberty or myasthenia gravis. Aldactone can also be used for treatment of female people with abnormal facial hair. Call to your doctor about the possible risks of using this product for your condition.
