Discussions that mention spironolactone

Hello, :)

I am on 25mg Spironolactone & 25mg Hctz. I get up to use the bathroom as early as fifteen minutes after settling in bed. It's infuriating, but what are the alternatives? I average about eight trips to the bathroom each night. I don't think I am fully awake during these nocturnal trips. I remain in a zombie-like state. These bathroom trips, combined with my insomnia from the medications, prevent me from getting a good nights' sleep. I have yet to find a solution to this problem. Whether or not one consumes any liquids prior to going to bed seems to make no difference whatsoever. Taking both medications in the morning does not seem to lessen the need for frequent urination throughout the day and night, either.
