Diuretic Spironolactone Spiractin

Uses
Spiractin (Spironolactone) is a diuretic medicine. Its mechanism of action involves inhibiting excess salt and water absorption by the body and contributing to the removal of unnecessary fluids. Doctors use it to treat patients affected by high blood pressure, cirrhosis of the liver, malignant ascites, nephrotic syndrome, primary hypearldosteronism and fluid retention in patients with CHF (congestive heart failure).

Because this medicine is a potassium sparing diuretic, it may be used to treat patients for low potassium levels in the blood (hypokalaemia). When administered, it competitively binds to the aldosterone receptor and prevents aldosterone from acting on the kidneys. Resulting from this, more water and salt are released as urine, which helps to reverse the symptoms of oedema. Another indication for this drug is hirsutism in women (a condition which causes abnormal and unwanted hair growth).

Dosage and Administration
Spiractin (Spironolactone) is provided in tablet form and the medicine content of each one is 100mg. Careful consideration will be required when your doctor is deciding on the appropriate dosage, and factors to be considered include the condition in need of treatment and the patient's current and past health. In some cases, adults undergoing treatment for primary hyperaldosteronism have been instructed to take 100mg per day. Titration to the dosage may be ordered by the doctor depending on the clinical response. High blood pressure, hirsutism, congestive heart failure or any other condition being treated may require changes to the dosage regimen. Always follow the instructions given by the doctor.

Side effects
During the course of treatment with Spiractin (Spironolactone) tablets, patients may notice side effects, such as:

  • Nausea
  • Decreased sexual ability
  • Unwanted growth of hair
  • Tender or swollen breasts
  • Increased tiredness or drowsiness

Your doctor will need to be informed if you notice any side effects while taking this medicine. Patients must immediately go to the hospital or consult their doctor if they notice a loss of energy, less frequent urination, problems moving or any severe reactions that have not been referred to here.

Precautions
Patients must be checked for signs of hypomagnesaemia, hyperkalaemia, hyponatraemia or any other signs of electrolyte disturbances.

Taking this medicine could make it easier to become dehydrated, especially if you are undergoing physical activity or if the weather is hot.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Spiractin (Spironolactone) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
