About Aldactone 25mg Tablet 15's

Aldactone 25mg Tablet 15's belongs to a class of medicine called 'diuretics' (water pills), primarily used to remove excess water from the body and treat fluid overload (oedema). It also maintains the bloodstream's potassium level and prevents hypertension (high blood pressure due to oedema (fluid retention). Oedema or fluid overload is associated with pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lung) or heart failure (irregular heart pumping). Leg swelling is the main characteristic of oedema, accompanied by shortness of breath, chest pain (angina), abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia), and swelling in other hands or abdomen areas.

Aldactone 25mg Tablet 15's contains spironolactone, which is a short-acting diuretic prescribed for the treatment of resistant oedema (fluid overload) associated with pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs), heart failure, and hepatic cirrhosis (chronic liver damage). Aldactone 25mg Tablet 15's works by increasing the amount of urine that is passed out from the kidneys. It effectively reduces excess fluid levels in the body and treats oedema (swelling) associated with heart, liver, kidney, or lung disease. This reduces the heart's workload and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, it helps lower high blood pressure, reducing the chances of heart attack, stroke, or angina (chest pain) in the future.

Your doctor will advise you how often you take Aldactone 25mg Tablet 15's based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience low blood pressure (hypotension), dehydration, dizziness, electrolyte disturbances (potassium and sodium), increased creatinine level in the blood, headache, nausea, and breast enlargement in males. Most of these side effects of Aldactone 25mg Tablet 15's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Try not to stop taking Aldactone 25mg Tablet 15's of your own as doing so may raise your blood pressure, thereby increasing the risk of heart disease and stroke. Inform your doctor if you are suffering from any kidney, liver, or heart disease. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please tell your doctor so that the dosage of Aldactone 25mg Tablet 15's can be prescribed accordingly. Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to Aldactone 25mg Tablet 15's. Reducing the amount of table salt (sodium chloride) in your food often relieves the body's swelling.

Patients Concern

Disease/Condition Glossary

Oedema: Oedema, also known as fluid overload, occurs due to fluid build-up in spaces between the cells. Oedema can result from a variety of factors. Some oedema reasons are caused by your lifestyle, while an underlying medical problem causes others. Shortness of breath, chest pain (angina), abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia), and swelling in hands or abdominal areas are the symptoms of oedema.

Hypertension: The blood exerts increased pressure on the walls of blood vessels leading to hypertension. High blood pressure is expressed as systolic/diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure is the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats or pumps out blood. Diastolic pressure is the pressure in the arteries between the heartbeats. Blood pressure is measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) by a blood pressure monitor called a sphygmomanometer. Some of the symptoms are headache, dizziness, nosebleeds, altered vision, chest pain, weakness, and shortness of breath. However, most of the time, the signs and symptoms of hypertension are none.
