Were you looking for information about Spironolactone? Sprinolactone is a common misspelling of spironolactone.
Spironolactone (Aldactone®) is a medication that can be prescribed for the treatment of low potassium levels, high blood pressure, heart failure, water retention, and hyperaldosteronism. The diuretic, which works by blocking a certain hormone in the body, can help increase the amount of salt and water removed from the blood.
While most people tolerate spironolactone tablets well, potential side effects include nausea, headache, drowsiness, and impotence. If you develop any problems while taking this medication -- or if you experience anything that "just does not seem right," contact your healthcare provider right away.
(Click Spironolactone for more information on specific uses for this drug, suggestions on when and how to take it, and important precautions and warnings to be aware of before starting treatment. You can also click any of the links in the box to the right for specific information.)
