The supplements are not regulated and you would not know what is in the preparation being sold. Many such preparations have injurious chemicals. I would recommend against taking an unregulated supplement. Talk to the doctor who prescribed spironolactone as s/he has more experience with the side effects of this drug. Wish you good health!

Supplements are frequently unhelpful and a waste of money. lack of libido if a problem should be treated by a sex therapist
