Congestive Heart Failure Home > Aldactazide Drug Information

Aldactazide® (spironolactone-HCTZ) is a prescription medication approved for the following uses:
This product contains two diuretics -- spironolactone and hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) -- that work together by increasing the amount of salt and water removed from the blood. The medication comes in tablet form and is generally taken once or twice a day.
Prior to beginning treatment with Aldactazide, review the medication's safety information with your healthcare provider. Drug interactions are possible, so your healthcare provider needs a complete list of all other medicines you are taking. In addition, certain people may need to avoid Aldactazide altogether, including those who:
  • Are allergic to sulfonamides ("sulfa" drugs)
  • Have high potassium levels or severe kidney disease
  • Are not producing any urine.
