What are the repercussions of the overdosing on Aldactone?
Taking one extra 100 mg aldactone tablet is not a problem
Thanks for writing in to us.
I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.
1. Spironolactone is a water pill that regulates the amount of water and avoids salt absorption and prevents potassium levels from getting low.
2. The dose of spironolactone is 25 to 200 mg per day in single or two doses.
3. If you have taken 2 tablets of Aldactone 100 mg then total dose is 200 mg. Taking one extra tablet will not cause any serious problem to your health and you are safe.
Therefore there is no need to go to hospital immediately. Please take your recommended dose from tomorrow.
Hope your query is answered.
Please do write back if you have any doubts.
