Information about Spironolactone:

Spironolactone is an aldosterone antagonist and is also considered a diuretic. It prevents Aldosterone from binding to receptor sites and inhibits certain electrolyte exchanges. Then it excretes water and sodium from the body while retaining potassium. What sets it apart from similar products such as Lasix.

Potassium-sparing diuretics are mild and have weak diuretic effects. However, athletes should be careful not to take potassium while taking these products, as this will increase serum potassium levels. Which would be dangerous.

Since it is an anti-androgen, Spironolactone is especially popular with female athletes due to its ability to minimize the virilizing effects of anabolic steroids. Women usually take 50 mg per day and can take up to 2 weeks.

As a mild diuretic, with a fairly long half-life, bodybuilders use Spironolactone a week before their competition to dry out and excrete water. A dose of 25 mg twice a day is recommended.
