Discussions that mention spironolactone

High & Low Blood Pressure board

My daughter has primary hyperaldostronism. It is a genetic condition that causes her to have severe hypertention. She actually takes three medications to control her BP now but was on five before her left adrenal was removed to control it. She takes Spironolactone, Norvasc, and Mini Press now but did take Minoxidil and Atenolol too before the adrenal was removed. She will have the right adrenal removed this month and will no longer need any of the BP meds, thank god. She has never had any problems from any of those meds except for some hair gowth in weird places and dizziness. She became accustomed to the dizziness and she no longer suffers any noticible effects from it. Complicated ain't she :D . Heather W
