ace inhepature ## Do you mean the drug Aldactone? Aldactone is a potassium-sparing diuretic used to treat congestive heart failure or high blood pressure. It may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor. ## What Lisa posted is correct, it contains the active ingredient Spironolactone. This is the only diuretic that works safely for me, I have a bottle in the cupboard, because it is my rescue medication, in case I experience fluid retention, again. It can cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, frequent urination, hypotension, and dehydration. Has this been prescribed for you?

Retaining fluid

My Dr prescribed Demedex 20mg once a day and aldactone 50mg 2times a day seems like a lot of diuretic too take I have a lot of fluid for some reason last time I took torsimide/demedex my sodium level was very low and I was hospitalized I worry about that is there any natural way to try and lose the fluid I don’t like taking meds to begin with ## Do you know why you are experiencing such fluid retention? Do you have high blood pressure, or a cardiac condition? That's really not an outrageous amount to take. It is also far more risky to allow fluid retention to remain uncontrolled, since that could result in congestive heart failure, which has the potential to be fatal. Do you eat a lot of salty, or fatty foods? Both could contribute to fluid retention. Are you on any other medi...

can one take aldactone 25 in place of daytor 20 both are diuretics ## What is the substitute drug for spasmonil ## Dytor contains Torsemide and Aldactone contains Spironolactone and it is not actually a straight diuretic and doesn't work the same way. Learn more Dytor details here. Learn more Aldactone details here. So, you really shouldn't make a switch, unless your doctor has told you to do so. Guddu, I am not sure what else is available there, but it contains the active ingredient Dicycloverine, so you'd most likely be looking for something else that contains it. Learn more Spasmonil details here. Are there any other questions or comments?
