MANUFACTURED WITH THE SAME POLYMORPH AS SANOFI-AVENTIS

SPIRONOLACTONE (CAS 52-01-7) is a synthetic, steroidal antimineralocorticoid (aldosterone antagonist), as well as, to a lesser extent, an antiandrogen, progestin, and antigonadotropin. It belongs to a class of drugs known as potassium-sparing diuretics. Spironolactone is on the WHO “list of essential medicines.”

THERAPEUTIC INDICATION: DIURETIC

SPIRINOLACTONE is used primarily as a diuretic and antihypertensive in the treatment of heart failure and hypertension.

It is also frequently applied off-label for the purpose of reducing androgen levels and activity in the body, in the treatment of hyperandrogenism in women, as a component of hormone replacement therapy for transsexual women.

It can be also quite effective in severe acne conditions.
