Spironolactone Dehydration Causes and Reviews


When you're dehydrated, your body doesn't have enough fluid and electrolytes to work properly. An average person on an average day needs about 3 quarts of water. But if you're out in the hot sun or are exercising a lot, you need a lot more than that. You can also become dehydrated if you are vomiting, have diarrhea, or are sweating a lot. People who are elderly, very young, taking certain medications, or have a chronic illness have a greater risk.

Signs of Dehydration in adults include

  • Being thirsty
  • Urinating less often than usual
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Dry skin
  • Feeling tired
  • Dizziness and fainting

Signs of Dehydration in babies and young children include a dry mouth and tongue, crying without tears, no wet diapers for 3 hours or more, a high fever and being unusually sleepy or drowsy.

If you think you're dehydrated, drink small amounts of water over a period of time. Drinking too much all at once can overload your stomach and make you throw up. If you are exercising in the heat and losing a lot of minerals in sweat, sports drinks can be helpful. Avoid any drinks that have caffeine.

Spironolactone Dehydration 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.
