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 (potassium saving diuretic) and Furosemide (circle diuretic) have diverse but complementary instruments and locales of activity. Subsequently, when given together they create added substance or synergistic diuretic. The Furosemide component represses the Na+/K+/2Cl- co-transporter within the climbing Circle of Henle and squares the reabsorption of sodium, potassium and chloride particles; in this manner expanding the amount of sodium and the volume of water excreted within the pee. This characteristically actuates potassium misfortune. The spironolactone component restrains the reabsorption of sodium in trade for potassium at the distal tubule by irritating the activity of aldosterone so that sodium excretion is enormously favored and the abundance misfortune of potassium, actuated by the Furosemide, is 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 harmfulness. Corticosteroids may cause hypokalemia in the event that they are utilized with Spironolactone. The blood weight bringing down and diuretic impacts of Furosemide may be diminished or canceled when utilized along 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 decrease 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 deliver rise to migraine and laziness and gastrointestinal trouble, counting spasm and the runs. Ataxia, mental perplexity, and skin rashes have been detailed as side impact. Gynaecomastia isn’t unprecedented and in uncommon cases breast extension may endure. Other endocrine disarranges counting hirsutism, extending of the voice, menstrual inconsistencies and weakness. Temporal increment in blood-urea-nitrogen concentrations may happen and mellow acidosis has been detailed. Spironolactone may cause hyponatremia and hyperkalemia. Intemperate diuresis may result in lack of hydration and decrease in blood volume with circulatory collapse with the plausibility of vascular thrombosis and embolism especially in elderly patients. Genuine consumption of potassium and magnesium may lead to cardiac arrhythmias.


Pregnancy & Lactation

Spironolactone and its metabolites may pass the placental barrier during pregnancy. When using spironolactone in pregnant women, the expected benefit must be evaluated against the potential risks to the mother and fetus. Furosemide may induce prenatal malformations, according to animal teratology studies. As a result, furosemide should only be used in women of childbearing age if proper contraception is employed or if the possible benefits outweigh the hazards to the fetus.

Lactation: Spironolactone metabolites have been found in breast milk. If the usage of Spironolactone is deemed necessary, an alternative infant feeding strategy should be implemented. Furosemide is excreted in breast milk, therefore if you need to take it, you should stop breastfeeding.
