Torsemide also often forces potassium out of the body, so when someone's potassium is low or if they don't hold normal levels of it, the Spironolactone might be prescribed instead, since it tends to help the body hold on to potassium. And no, unless your doctor has specifically instructed you to do so, you shouldn't take both at the same time, because that could create the risk of severe dehydration and kidney damage. Side effects to these medications may include nausea, dizziness, headache and increased urinat...
