The dose of spironolactone your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you may be taking
- How you respond to the medication.
As with any medication, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
What If I Take an Overdose?
People who take too much spironolactone may have overdose symptoms that could include:
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
- Electrolyte imbalance.
If you happen to take too much, seek immediate medical attention.
How Should Spironolactone Be Stored?
Spironolactone should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be kept in an airtight container.
Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
