No: As long as your electrolytes (especially potassium) is monitored, taking spironolactone is fine. It can lower blood pressure, improve abnormal thickening of the heart, decrease protein in the urine, and may decrease the risk of becoming diabetic. Do not take if pregnant, however, since it can lead to birth defects.
