I take 100mg once a day and haven't noticed any side effects. I started it this fall at 25mg and bumped it up 25mg every two weeks because I got a rash with it when I tried it several years ago. This time i haven't gotten any side effects and have been taking the full 100mg for several months now.
Just for reference, my blood pressure/pulse run low and I drink lots of water- typically at least 3 quarts a day.
Definitely talk to your doctor!

To those of you who take or have taken spironolactone, how much do you take, and do you have any side effects? I'm taking 100mg a day. Recently, I've felt very dehydrated, fatigued and have been getting itchy and red skin rashes. I didn't have any problems for a year with it, but I'm wondering if this dose is too much as I'm losing weight or that maybe I'm getting side effects as the med is building up over time. Was just curious if anyone experienced anything similar.
