Aldactazide is a combination of spironolactone (a potassium-sparing diuretic) and hydrochlorothiazide (a thiazide diuretic). This is a tan colored tablet available in 25mg/25mg and 50mg/50mg. It can be purchased under the brand name Aldactazide or generically (at a lower cost) as spironolactone and hydrochlorothiazide.
This medication is prescribed to those who have fluid retention, otherwise known as edema, or those with hypertension (high blood pressure). Edema is seen in people with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver and nephrotic (kidney disorder).
Aldactazide works by preventing the body from absorbing too much salt (too much salt will cause fluid retention) which is done by the thiazide diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide). The potassium-sparing diuretic (spironolactone) the does the same but also keeps your potassium levels from getting too low. Low potassium levels are linked to high blood pressure.
