Aldactone (Spironolactone) by RPG is a popular diuretic among athletes and among bodybuilders who participate in competitions. In general, it is one of the most well tolerated diuretics on the market, although it is not the strongest, but still its potency is enough to give good results. Athletes who need a boost to fit into a certain weight class will take Aldactone, as it can noticeably reduce their total body weight in a short period of time.

Effectiveness of Aldactone
The action of Aldactone is largely to increase the excretion of water and sodium. By protecting the body from the simultaneous excretion of potassium, it is a diuretic that is much better tolerated than others. When large amounts of potassium are excreted from the body, this can lead to an electrolyte imbalance and often to severe muscle cramps. Muscle cramps can be very severe and occur in different parts of the body at the same time, causing the person to experience excruciating pain. However, this will not happen when taking Aldactone as the potassium will not be excreted from the body.
The action of Aldactone is very useful for therapeutic purposes, as a frequent cause of high blood pressure is water retention, which is determined by the presence of oedema. The elimination of excess water is often a treatment for such conditions.
For sports purposes, the action of Aldactone will be useful for the same reason: to eliminate fluid. However, in this case, the emphasis is often not on eliminating excess fluid, but on reducing levels below normal in a short period of time. If a person’s weight will not fit into a certain weight class, the rapid elimination of excess fluid may accelerate this process.
Recommendations for using the drug
The standard dosage of Aldactone will be between 50 and 100 mg per day. The total dosage will be broken down into several small doses throughout the day, but so as not to exceed the 50-100 mg mark.
For performance purposes, doses of Aldactone will never exceed 100 mg per day and for many people 50 mg per day will be sufficient. Usually a double dose of 25-50mg per day is sufficient. If you have never taken a diuretic before, you will need to take a total dose once a day to assess your response to the drug. Although it is a short-term medication, for many people this dose of Aldactone will be more than enough. If your physical performance has not improved after taking this drug, it is likely that there is a little more fat in the body than you think.
Potential side effects
Anyone taking Aldactone should avoid taking drugs containing potassium or following a diet rich in potassium. High potassium levels when taking this diuretic, known as potassium sparing, can lead to hyperkalaemia, which in turn can cause cardiac complications. The following ailments also occur:
- Gynecomastia (rare)
- Loss of muscular coordination
