Spironolactone - Dosage and How to Use

How should Spironolactone be used?

  • ​Do not stop taking your medication without checking with your healthcare professional.
  • You should take this medication with or after food.
  • If you are taking one dose a day, take it in the morning. If you are taking the medicine two times a day, take the second dose before 6pm so that you do not need to wake up often at night to urinate.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

​If you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, take only the usual dose. Do not double your dose or use extra medication to make up for the missed dose.
