Description

Spironolactone (marketed as Aldactone ®, Novo-Spiroton ®, Spiractin ®, Spirotone ®, or Berlactone ®) is a synthetic 17-lactone steroid which is a renal competitive aldosterone antagonist in a class of pharmaceuticals called potassium -sparing diuretics, used primarily to treat low-renin hypertension, hypokalemia, and Conn's syndrome. On its own, spironolactone is only a weak diuretic, but it can be combined with other diuretics. Due to its anti-androgen effect, it can also be used to treat hirsutism, and is a common component in hormone therapy for male-to-female transgendered people. Also used for treating hair loss and acne in women. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License.
