Aldactone (Generic) contains spironolactone as an active ingredient. It is a potassium-sparing diuretic, a medication intended for controlling aldosterone levels in the body. Aldosterone hormone regulates the water/salt balance.
Besides treating excess aldosterone levels, the indications to use include hypokalemia ((low potassium in the blood) and edema (fluid retention) in patients with kidney disorder/liver cirrhosis/ congestive heart failure. Aldactone prevents absorption of excess salt by the body, thus maintaining optimal potassium levels.
Generic Aldactone comes in the form of tabs for oral administration.
Generic Aldactone is also available in the market as Spironolactone, Spiro, Aldace, Acelat, Abbolactone.
