Spironolactone Chest Pain 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.

Sat, 16 Jan 2010
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.

My hair has stopped falling out! the hair i have is so much thicker and healthier... i dont wear a hat anymore and i got a knot in my hair for the first time yesterday.. sounds strange, but i was over the moon about it :) being able to grow my hair again has made me so happy I have had to take regular blood test to keep an eye on my levels. So far so good :)
