Home Page Potential Lawsuit Spironolactone
Used for congestive heart failure that was supposed to save lives, Spironolactone also caused dozens of deaths from a side effect when doctors began prescribing it more widely.
A major study five years ago found that adding spironolactone to the standard treatments cut the death rate by 30 percent in people with serious heart failure. However, when prescription rates for spironolactone increased fivefold, and hospitalizations and deaths from high potassium tripled.
Physicians need to be careful who they prescribe the drug to, and need to carefully monitor for potassium buildup.
