    anyone get red bloodshot eyes from spironolactone?

    I just started spironolactone on Wednesday and I have been peeing like crazy which is what I expected. I take 100 mg twice a day. What I haven't expected was the leg cramps and red bloodshot eyes. I'm assuming that it is from getting dehydrated but not sure. It has only started since I started the spironolactone. I try to drink as much as possible but I'm already in the bathroom every 2 hours at least and going about 2-4 times at night right now. So anyone else have bloodshot eyes from it? Should I talk to my doctor about lowering the dosage? Any input would be great!

    I have been on the same dosage as you for about 4 months now. When I first started I was going to the bathroom a lot! It gets better though! The bloodshot eyes, I've never had. But I do know that a symptom of dehydration is the bloodshot eyes. Sorry. Hope you get well.

    I was on Spironolactone for about 10 months and I never got blood shot eyes. If I were you I would contact my doctor immediately and let them know.
