How Much Water Should You Drink When Taking Spironolactone

    You can’t drink herbal teas that are diuretics. I made the mistake of drinking Chamomile while taking spironolactone and got very sick. I had been drinking Chamomile tea for years and didn’t realize it was a diuretic.

    In fact, there’s no comprehensive guide for this drug, and there should be, since it’s prescribed for lowering blood pressure, which is why it was prescribed to me.

    I actually want to get off of it. I lost weight while taking it and I didn’t need to. It’s got a strict diet due to the potassium sparing factor so, if your usual diet is the Mediterranean diet, you won’t be able to eat so many
    healthy foods anymore. Low Potassium foods are not as healthy, imo. Having to give up Salmon, avocados, tomatoes, nuts, bananas, oranges, etc, makes for a dull diet.

    Also, I found sugar any sugar, is a problem with this drug…even a couple of cookies can sometimes cause GI problems. Salt is too.

    I guess you could say, I’m not a fan of this drug.
