Aldactone is a potassium-sparing diuretic that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt and keeps your potassium levels from getting too low.
Aldactone is used to diagnose or treat a condition in which you have too much aldosterone in your body. Aldosterone is a hormone produced by your adrenal glands to help regulate the salt and water balance in your body. Aldactone also treats fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, or a kidney disorder called nephrotic syndrome. Aldactone is also used to treat or prevent hypokalemia (low potassium levels in the blood).
Do not use Aldactone if you have kidney disease, urination problems, or high levels of potassium in your blood. Do not use potassium supplements or other diuretics while you are taking Aldactone.
Before using this medication, tell your doctor if you have liver disease, or if you use a steroid or another diuretic.?Avoid drinking alcohol, which can increase some of the side effects of Aldactone. Avoid a diet high in salt. Too much salt will cause your body to retain water and can make this medication less effective. Do not use salt substitutes or low-sodium milk products that contain potassium. These products could cause your potassium levels to get too high while you are taking Aldactone.
Avoid becoming overheated or dehydrated during exercise and in hot weather. Follow your doctor's instructions about the type and amount of liquids you should drink. In some cases, drinking too much liquid can be as unsafe as not drinking enough. If you are being treated for high blood pressure, keep using this medication even if you feel fine. High blood pressure often has no symptoms.
Do not use Aldactone if you have: kidney disease or are unable to urinate; high potassium levels (hyperkalemia); or?if you are taking potassium supplements or other potassium-sparing diuretics such as Aldactazide, amiloride, or triamterene.
Before using Aldactone, tell your doctor if you have: heart disease; liver disease. If you have any of these conditions, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take Aldactone.
Side effects of Aldactone include headache, diarrhea, cramps, drowsiness, rash, nausea, vomiting, impotence, irregular menstrual periods, and irregular hair growth. Fluid and electrolytes imbalance (for example, low sodium, low magnesium, and high potassium) may occur, so patients should be monitored carefully. Enlargement of the breasts (gynecomastia) may also occur and is related to dose and duration of therapy. It usually reverses upon discontinuation of spironolactone.
|The drug is both a decongestant and a bronchodilator. A decongestant thins the blood to reduce?blood pressure?while a bronchodilator widens the vessels that carry oxygen, so the volume of oxygen in the blood increases.
In?some European and Latin American countries, clenbuterol is approved as an?asthma?drug for humans too. But, in the United States, it is a banned substance for this purpose.
In the U.S. in the past, clenbuterol?has been used?in animal rearing as well as by vets. In 1991, the U.S. Food Safety and Inspection Service found it had been fed to livestock, so the animals gained more muscle and less fat. But, again, in many countries, clenbuterol is illegal for animal use.
The drug is now controversial because of its use in bodybuilding and weight-loss programs||Levothyroxine?is used to treat an underactive?thyroid?(hypothyroidism). It replaces or provides more thyroid?hormone, which is normally produced by the thyroid gland.?Low thyroid?hormone levels can occur naturally or when the thyroid gland is injured by?radiation/medications?or removed by surgery. Having enough thyroid hormone is important for maintaining normal mental and?physical activity. In children, having enough thyroid hormone is important for normal mental and physical development. This medication?is also used to treat other types of?thyroid disorders?(such as?thyroid cancer).This medication should not be used to treat?infertility?unless it is caused by?low thyroid?hormone levels.|

What is Lasix 40 mg used for?
Lasix 40 mg is used to treat fluid retention (edema) in people with a kidney disorder, such as congestive heart failure, liver disease, or nephrotic syndrome. Lasix 40 mg allows the salt to pass into your urine. In most sports, diuretics are used to lose a small amount of weight at an injury. If you compete in weight classes and you need to lose weight in an hour, Lasix will cheat for you. It cleans the water in your body and you are lighter. If you have a match the next day, you?re probably heavier again, so it?s a big advantage. Diuretic use in bodybuilding is another reason entirely. Ultimately, the goal is to show as many muscles as possible and to show too many definitions and lines within that muscle. Unfortunately, even at dangerously low body fat percentages that bodybuilders compete, most of this definition can still be hidden under subcutaneous water layers. Using diuretics, water can be poured and the maximum potential of a physique can be maintained. In most cases, the levels of water held by an athlete made the difference between doing very well and doing too badly. And the differences between the bias of a contest in the water house and the evening show sometimes made a difference between several settlements. That?s why diuretics have become an integral part of bodybuilding in the past 20 years.
