Spironolactone Bradycardia Causes and Reviews


An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of your heartbeat. It means that your heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. When the heart beats faster than normal, it is called tachycardia. When the heart beats too slowly, it is called Bradycardia. The most common type of arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation, which causes an irregular and fast heart beat.

Many factors can affect your heart's rhythm, such as having had a heart attack, smoking, congenital heart defects, and stress. Some substances or medicines may also cause arrhythmias.

Symptoms of arrhythmias include

  • Fast or slow heart beat
  • Skipping beats
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating

Your doctor can run tests to find out if you have an arrhythmia. Treatment to restore a normal heart rhythm may include medicines, an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) or pacemaker, or sometimes surgery.

Spironolactone Bradycardia Reviews

Tue, 09 Nov 2010

I am a female patient from NY, age 33. I am being treated for Hashimoto Thyroiditis with Synthroid and Cytomel. I was concerned that after 11 years since my diagnosis, my hair is still falling out at an alarming rate. My doctor noticed that my testosterone levels were a bit high and decided to treat me with Spironolactone (50 MG). I noticed no difference in the amount of hair loss but have been having constant, uncomfortable eye spasms and a breast tenderness as well as breast enlargement. This is just after a little over a month of treatment. I will stop taking Spironolactone as I do not see it as being beneficial to me.

I'm a 29 year old female and started taking spiro to get rid of my persistent adult acne. I took 100mg a day for about 2 weeks and it worked really quickly to clear my skin, I also went up an entire cup size which was a bonus and because it stopped any fluid retention I lost a bit of weight as well.
Unfortunately I had to stop taking it because of the side effects. The worst was a really low mood and anxiety, I would take it and half an hour later have to skull 2-3 litres of water, wee it all out and then couldn't sleep because my heart was racing to much and I felt really on edge. I also felt slightly nauseous all of the time (probably contributed to the weight loss) and found that it made me fart a lot.
I'm going to try it again though, this time on a lower dosage just a few times a week to see how that goes.

I was on Spironolactone (12.5 daily) . Hindsight, almost immediately I began suffering from ED. Mixed symptoms thought at the time from Diabetes T2 . Was also on Ace Inhibitors, Digoxin, Ibuprofenm Furosemide. After 18 months suddenly developed MAJOR heartburn and EXTREMELY sore nipples. When GP was told of new symptons, was immediately told to halt Spiron. I have been off of it for 4 months now, but STILL experience nipple pain. Can anyone tell me how to stop the pain ?? I was told that it would go away, but I am starting to wonder. I am a 58 yo WM, 5'7, 250# . My chest has increased 2 'cup' sizes at least. Would like to find out how to reverse these unwanted effects.
