What is spironolactone? what are the side affects to this medican?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

See below: Spironolactone is a pottassium sparing diuretic. A diuretic is a medication which enhances fluid and salt excretion from the kidney. Spironolactone is a weak diuretic and is used because it does not require pottassium supplementation unlike other diueretics. It is also used to treat high blood pressure and heart problems.
