Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Spironolactone is a competitive aldosterone receptor antagonist. Used as potassium sparing diuretic.

Spironolactone reduces aldosterone-induced potassium/magnesium loss and myocardial fibrosis. It reduces hypertension, improves the endothelial function and reduces the overall morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic heart failure. Spironolactone improves nitric oxide bioactivity and vascular endothelial vasodilator dysfunction.

Packaging

1, 5 g in glass bottle

Preparation Note

Spironolactone yields clear, faint yellow solution in chloroform at 50 mg/ml.

Application

Spironolactone was added to rat diet to study the effect of long-term spironolactone use on renal function.
