Precautions

Warnings
Spironolactone has been shown to be tumorogenic in chronic toxicity studies in rats. The drug should only be used for conditions included under indications and usage. Unnecessary use of the drug should be avoided. Monitor for evidence of fluid or electrolyte imbalance (eg, alkalosis, hyperkalemia, hypomagnesemia, hyponatremia). Monitoring serum and urine electrolytes are especially important when the patient is vomiting excessively or receiving parenteral fluids. Obtain ECG if hyperkalemia is suspected.

Monitor
Periodically measure serum electrolytes to detect possible electrolyte imbalance, particularly in the elderly and in patients with renal or hepatic impairment. It is critical to monitor serum potassium in patients with severe heart failure; monitor potassium and creatine 1 week after starting therapy, monthly for the first 3 months, then quarterly for a year, and then every 6 months.
