Discussions that mention spironolactone

God no,

I missed gynecomastia in the side effects...that's why I won't consider spironolactone. I'm too vain abput my physique to toalerate any possibility of BT's (the bodybuilder term is too rude) at my age.
Thanks Lane, scratching verapamil.

Oh well, there's always nifedipine...:D:D:D. Anyone get DIZZY switching drugs over and over.
I just got done with a short trial (on my own) of hydralazine...popular 30 years ago. Main side effect is water retention and palpitations. Just what a salt-sensitive needs...threw the bottle back in the closet after gaining 4 pounds in 4 days! Bad BP numbers on top of it...and LUNG congestion!
