Aldactone is a tablet that contains spironolactone. Spironolactone is primarily used as a diuretic, to reduce fluid retention in conditions such as congestive heart failure, hypertension (high blood pressure), liver cirrhosis and kidney disease. Aldactone also acts as an anti-androgen by binding to the androgen receptor and competing with dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the active metabolite of testosterone, which promotes male characteristics. This blocks the action of DHT.
Using an anti-androgen like spironolactone (usually in high doses of 200–400 mg per day) allows the amount of oestrogen administered for feminising hormone therapy to be reduced while optimising the hormone regime needed to stimulate breast development, feminisation of skin, and female fat distribution.
