This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

• essential hypertension (high blood pressure with an unknown cause)
• some oedematous disorders (swelling with fluid) including congestive cardiac failure
• diagnosis and treatment of primary aldosteronism (a hormone disorder causing fluid retention)
• as add-on therapy in malignant hypertension (a very serious form of high blood pressure)
• where there is a low amount of potassium (a mineral) in the blood caused by another diuretic (fluid-removing medicine)
• prevention of low amounts of potassium (a mineral) in the blood in patients taking digitalis (a type of heart drug)
ALDACTONE (spironolactone) acts by working against a hormone called aldosterone. Too much aldosterone causes increased amounts of sodium (a mineral) and water to be retained by the kidneys, while too much potassium is removed from the body. ALDACTONE works against the effects of aldosterone.

ALDACTONE acts by removing excess fluid and by lowering blood pressure. It may be given alone or with other diuretics (fluid-removing medicines). It improves the effectiveness of other medicines used to lower blood pressure.

• ALDACTONE improves the blood pressure lowering action of thiazide diuretics (a type of fluid-removing medicine) while at the same time reducing or preventing potassium loss due to these medicines.
• ALDACTONE may be used to establish the diagnosis of primary hyperaldosteronism.
• hirsutism (excess body hair in women).

ALDACTONE also has a moderate ability to act against male sex hormones (anti-androgenic effect). Because of this, ALDACTONE is effective in the treatment of female hirsutism (excess body hair). It reduces hair growth, thickness and hair colour. Increased urine flow is unlikely to be a problem when ALDACTONE is used to treat hirsutism. This is because aldosterone levels are not normally high in patients with hirsutism.

Your doctor, however, may prescribe ALDACTONE for another purpose.

Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why ALDACTONE has been prescribed for you.

There is no evidence that ALDACTONE is addictive
