Brand vs generic: Spironolactone is the generic name of a water pill (diuretic) used in high blood pressure & heart failure. It is also used off-label as an anti-androgen. The only brand name in the States of which I am aware is Aldactone (spironolactone) but most insurances won't pay for the brand name of anything once it goes generic.
