How effective are Spironolactone tablets from Japan for edema and hypertension (Aldactone, Spiractin, Verospiron)?
Spironolactone is a derivative of progesterone and a potent antimineralocorticoid. It works by inhibiting the action of aldosterone, a steroid hormone produced by adrenal gland and essential for sodium conservation in the body. By this, Spironolactone tablets increase urinary volume, remove swelling of the body by excreting excess water, and consequently lower the blood pressure.

Spironolactone tablets are effective for the treatment of hypertension, cardiac edema (congestive heart failure), renal edema, hepatic edema, idiopathic edema, edema and ascites associated with malignant tumors and malnutrition edema. Also, this medicine is used to diagnose primary aldosteronism and to improve its symptoms. Studies showed that spironolactone decreases the risk of death in patients with heart failure history for 30%, also decreasing the risk of hospitalization and improving overall symptoms (B. Pitt, F. Zannad et al. The effect of spironolactone on morbidity and mortality in patients with severe heart failure // The New England journal of medicine. 1999, 341(10): 709-17). Moreover, Spironolactone tablets may be used as a component of feminizing hormone therapy in transgender women upon the decision of doctor in charge.
