I heard about this medication called Spironolactone that can apparently treat congestive heart failure. A good friend of mine is suffering from congestive heart failure and she switched bunch of medications and still hasn't found any medication that would help her with her condition.
Do you know anything about this medication called Spironolactone? I read about it on the internet while searching for the right medication for my friend. Did anyone have any close encounter with this medication, did anyone use it? I want to know, if anyone knows, how effective is this medication in treating congestive heart failure?
This is a very effective medicine indeed. It is not only used to treat heart failure, but it is also used for high blood pressure which helps to prevent strokes, heart attack, and kidney problems. It is also used to treat swelling caused by certain conditions (such as heart failure) by removing excess fluid and improving symptoms such as breathing problems.
This girl I know that went in the same high school as I did had this condition and I remember that she was using spironolactone for this. We were very close and if I remember well, this medicine was good for her.
This also treats low potassium level, Health n joy.
It is a very effective medicine when it comes to treating congestive heart failure. I have been using this medicine for one year now and it has greatly improved my life, so I would as well recommend it to your friend. However, even though I don't have any side effects, it doesn't mean that your friend isn't going to have some. Like every other medicine, this one has some mild side effect but there are some dangerous side effects as well but they are pretty much rare. She should be given insight in these anyway.
I appreciate your help, Health n joy and Stradivarius. I already talked to my friend about this matter and I told her what you guys already told me. Now she is curious to know about the side effects that you just mentioned, Stradivarius, she just wants to know what can she expect so that she might be ready for it.
So can anyone tell me more about these side effects or actually anything about this medication that would be important for my friend to know? She is now serious about trying to treat her condition with this medicine so any additional info will come in handy.
Spironolactone is an excellent medication for treating hormonal acne in females. I remember that because my sister was using it but in higher dosage it can have side effects as well. And until two months ago I was so sure that this medication is only for acne until I found the article that it is used to treat heart failures as well.
So, yes. It is very effective and doctors actually recommend it a lot.
Actually, I am sure that somewhere I found the information that this is one of the best medicines in treating congestive heart failure as well.
It is worth trying, right?
Good day there.
Yes, I have heard that this medicine can help you treat acne as well, but definitely when you have a congestive heart failure you should treat it with Spironolactone. I have also heard that this is one of the best medicines at the whole world.
And you know what else? It is good for treating other heart issues and even the kidney disease. Like one doctor told me before – it is very powerful medicine.
My mom is using this medicine and she never had any problems. Bee, about your question about the side - effects, you can have some such as dizziness or nausea at the beginning but that is all.
Hey. Treating patients with heart failure is always a very complicated affair and medications are necessary for a lot of patients.
Spironolactone is a potassium sparing diuretic that was approved many years ago. That is why I believe that it is totally safe and that is the most amazing medicine.
Now, it is possible that this medicine like any other has side – effects. Here are some: abdominal pain, stomach pain, bleeding gums, bloody urine, breast pain, chest pain, chills, colored stools, cloudy urine, confusion, constipation, diarrhea, dark urine as well.
Those all can be side – effects from this medicine.
