Absolutely!: If you are taking a Potassium-sparing diuretic (Aldactone (spironolactone) is in this category) for hypertension or as a prescribed part of a treatment regimen, then by all means. The water weight that you may be experiencing during your menses will be handled by the kidney naturally. I know that you would only take this because it was prescribed. I have some patients that get rid of water weight with diuretic
