More information

  • Usage

    Spironolactone is an oral medication that is marketed under the brand names like Aldactone and Spiractin. Part of a class of medications known as potassium-sparing medications, spironolactone is an antagonist of aldosterone and causes the excretion of sodium and water and the retention of potassium. Through this mechanism, spironolactone is both a diuretic and a medication with antihypertensive effects on both the systolic and diastolic blood pressures. Spironolactone also has antiandrogenic effects and can block androgen hormones such as testosterone.

  • Spironolactone For Acne?

    Because spironolactone seems to have some effect on hormones, it is thought that spironolactone might be helpful in the management of specific conditions related to abnormal hormone levels. In particular, some reports are that spironolactone may be useful in treating some cases of acne as well as unwanted hair growth. At present, the use of spironolactone for managing these conditions would be considered off-label and based on the judgement of a medical provider as the FDA has not approved spironolactone for acne.
