Furosemide + Spironolactone



The combination of frusemide and spironolactone is suggested in-

  • Essential hypertension is a condition in which the blood pressure is
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a type of congestive heart failure
  • Cirrhosis of the liver with fluid buildup in the abdominal cavity (ascites)
  • Excess fluid retention causes swelling (edema)
  • Hyperaldosteronism
  • Secondary hyperaldosteronism is related with resistant edema.



Spironolactone (a potassium-sparing diuretic) and Furosemide (a loop diuretic) work in separate ways but compliment each other. As a result, when taken together, they generate a diuretic that is additive or synergistic. The Furosemide component inhibits the Na+/K+/2Cl- co-transporter in the ascending Loop of Henle, blocking sodium, potassium, and chloride ion reabsorption and thereby increasing sodium and water excretion in the urine. Potassium depletion is a common side effect of this. By antagonizing the action of aldosterone, the spironolactone component reduces sodium reabsorption in exchange for potassium at the distal tubule, allowing sodium excretion to be substantially favored and excess potassium loss caused by Furosemide to be reduced.


Dosage & Administration

Furosemide 20 and spironolactone 50 mg: 1 to 4 tablets daily (20 to 80 mg of Furosemide and 50 to 200 mg of spironolactone) according to the patient’s response.

Furosemide 40 and spironolactone 50 mg: For previously stabilized patients requiring a higher dosage of spironolactone and Furosemide, This tablet can be used at a dose of one to two tablets daily (Furosemide 40 to 80 mg and spironolactone 50 to 100 mg).

Use in children: Spironolactone and Furosemide is not suitable for use in children. Spironolactone and Furosemide may both be excreted more slowly in the elderly.



When taken in conjunction with Expert inhibitors or potassium salts there’s an expanded risk of hyperkalemia. Spironolactone increments the levels of cardiac glycosides such as digoxin within the blood and this may result in digitalis poisonous quality. Corticosteroids may cause hypokalemia on the off chance that they are utilized with Spironolactone. The blood weight bringing down and diuretic impacts of Furosemide may be decreased or annulled when utilized in conjunction with indomethacin and conceivably other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Furosemide may increment the ototoxicity of aminoglycoside anti-microbials. Concurrent organization of sucralfate and Furosemide may diminish the natriuretic and anti-hypertensive impact of Furosemide.



Anuria, acute renal insufficiency, quickly deteriorating or severe impairment of renal function (creatinine clearance 30 ml/min), hyperkalaemia, Addison’s disease, and hypersensitivity to Spironolactone, Furosemide, or sulphonamides are all contraindications.


Side Effects

Spironolactone may grant rise to cerebral pain and laziness and gastrointestinal trouble, counting spasm and loose bowels. Ataxia, mental perplexity, and skin rashes have been detailed as side impact. Gynaecomastia isn’t unprecedented and in uncommon cases breast broadening may continue. Other endocrine clutters counting hirsutism, developing of the voice, menstrual inconsistencies and weakness. Temporal increment in blood-urea-nitrogen concentrations may happen and gentle acidosis has been detailed. Spironolactone may cause hyponatremia and hyperkalemia. Intemperate diuresis may result in drying out and lessening in blood volume with circulatory collapse with the plausibility of vascular thrombosis and embolism especially in elderly patients. Genuine exhaustion of potassium and magnesium may lead to cardiac arrhythmias.


Pregnancy & Lactation

Pregnancy: Spironolactone and its metabolites may cross the placental obstruction. The utilize of spironolactone in pregnant ladies requires that the expected advantage be weighed against the conceivable risks to the mother and hatchling. Creature teratology ponders demonstrate that Furosemide may cause fetal variations from the norm. Subsequently, Furosemide ought to as it were be utilized in ladies in child bearing age when suitable prophylactic measures are taken or on the off chance that the potential benefits legitimize the potential dangers to the embryo.

Lactation: Metabolites of Spironolactone have been recognized in breast drain. In the event that utilize of Spironolactone is considered basic, an elective strategy of newborn child bolstering ought to be organizations. Furosemide is excreted in breast drain and breast-feeding ought to be suspended in case treatment is fundamental.
