Can You Get an Aldactone Prescription Online?

Do you have high blood pressure? You may have heard about (or previously been prescribed) Aldactone, and now you’re wondering if you can get an Aldactone prescription online.

The answer is yes, if Aldactone will help manage your high blood pressure then a doctor can write you a prescription online. Click here to talk to a doctor now.

Since Aldactone isn’t right for everybody, let’s talk more about what it is, how it works, the risks and benefits, and other considerations and precautions of Aldactone. Then, we’ll go into detail about how getting an Aldactone prescription online works.

What is Aldactone?

Aldactone is one brand name for spironolactone, a diuretic (water pill). It’s used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure, and low potassium levels.

How does Aldactone work?

Aldactone prevents your body from absorbing too much salt while also making sure your potassium levels don’t drop too low. Getting rid of extra salt in the body helps lower blood pressure.

Aldactone dosage and treatment

The typical starting dosage of Aldactone is 50 to 100 mg taken once per day, usually in the morning. However, dosages may range from 25 to 400 mg per day, so always follow your doctor’s dosing instructions to ensure that you are taking the correct dose for your health condition.

Benefits of Aldactone

Since Aldactone reduces high blood pressure, it reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney damage. Aldactone also helps treat heart failure and low potassium levels.

Side Effects of Aldactone

As with any medication, Aldactone is generally considered safe, but it does carry the risk of side effects. Side effects that you could potentially have include:

  • Cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Lightheadedness
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Rash
  • Leg cramps
  • Impotence (sexual dysfunction)
  • Drowsiness
  • Irregular hair growth
  • Irregular menstrual periods
  • Little or no urination
  • Enlargement of male breasts
  • Kidney problems
  • Liver problems
  • Low white blood cells
  • Low platelets
  • Low potassium
  • Stomach bleeding

  • Electrolyte imbalance
  • Tumors

Considerations and Precautions of Aldactone

While Aldactone is generally considered safe, it isn’t appropriate for everybody. Always tell your doctor about every medication you take and your complete medical history to help prevent serious complications.

Aldactone Interactions

Aldactone may cause serious interactions with some medications. Be sure to tell your doctor about every medication you take, including vitamins, supplements, and over the counter medications. Especially mention if you take any of the following:

  • Lithium
  • Eplerenone
  • Digoxin
  • Cholestyramine
  • Trimethoprim
  • Indomethacin (Indocin)
  • Potassium supplements
  • Heart medication
  • Other blood pressure medications
  • Medicine to prevent blood clots
  • NSAIDs like ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), naproxen (Aleve), or aspirin

Other Aldactone Considerations

Aldactone can cause complications with certain medical conditions. Make sure you share your entire medical history with your doctor. Be especially sure to mention any of the following:

  • Kidney problems
  • Heart disease
  • Liver problems
  • Decreased adrenal gland function (Addison’s disease)
  • Untreated mineral imbalance like high potassium or low sodium
  • Unable to urinate

Aldactone and Pregnancy or Breastfeeding

Diuretics like Aldactone may cause problems during pregnancy. Talk to your doctor before taking Aldactone if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant. Contact your doctor right away if you become pregnant while taking Aldactone.

Aldactone may pass into breast milk. Talk to your doctor before taking Aldactone if you are breastfeeding.

Can You Buy Aldactone Online?

While it is possible to buy Aldactone online, you must be careful about how you do it. Federal law requires everybody to speak with a doctor before getting prescription medication. So if you find sites offering to ship medications from other countries, remember those websites (and, therefore, you) are skirting the law.

Fortunately, there is a legal, safe, and reputable way to buy Aldactone online. With online doctors such as PlushCare, you can have a phone or video appointment with a licensed doctor. If they believe that you would benefit from Aldactone, they can electronically send a prescription to a pharmacy near you.

How does it work? Get started by clicking here or calling (888) 906-7313 any time of day or night to schedule an appointment.

At your scheduled appointment time, you will let your doctor know about your current medications and complete medical history. This helps us prevent potentially serious medication complications. Then you’ll discuss your symptoms and why you think Aldactone is right for you. If the doctor agrees that Aldactone (or another medication) can help, they will send an electronic prescription to the pharmacy of your choice, where you can pick it up as soon as it’s ready.

It really is that easy to get an Aldactone prescription online. Get started now by clicking here or calling (888) 906-7313 to make an appointment. You no longer have to go into your doctor’s office just to get prescription medications!
