serve reaction while working with drug. Have to care an epic pen at all times

Comment from: Tom, 75 or over Female Published: December 13

after taking this medication for several months I became extremely ill, so dizzy and ill feeling that I could not stand or funtion. Hoarse. Doctors ran emergency tests on my pacemaker and heart but found no problems. Tried a medicine for iner ears problems but that was not working even after 2-5 day treatments. Finally stopped Inspra because it was the last medicine perscribed and within 36 hours I was fine and have remained fine ever since. Was on Inspra once before several years ago and had problems with hoarseness and sore breasts (I'm a man) and quit then for those reasons but was told the drug had been improved. I will never take it again.

Along with 3 other drugs my blood pressure doesn't spike now and stays in the 120/75 range (for the most part) since I started using this drug. However muscles ache and breasts are sore but much better than using sprinolactone so I guess I can't complain!

I have problem with over production of aldesterone in the adrenal gland, this caused extreme high blood pressure. Had other drugs first with lots of side affects. After starting INSPRA no side effects feeling better than ever and blood pressure to normal. This treatment will be for life.

This medication in a relatively strong dosage has been highly effective in reducing sodium levels and increasing potassium levels. There is a medical term for this but I forget it. My kidney doctor has used it successfully for many patients.

At times my breasts gets very sensitive and itchy, especialy the right breast. Nipple and breast enlarge slightly at times. Some med.refills have no side effect and others do.

Took Inspra for 1 month after my heart attack, no problems. My cardiologist said it was most effective for the first 30 days after a heart attack, but not a long term drug regimen

Comment from: Masternav, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: October 19

After many years unable to completely control either blood pressure or low potassium levels, my PCP testing my aldosterone/renin ration, which was through the roof. She referred me to a nephrologist, who pressribed this. Virtually a miracle drug. K levels almost immediately moved to the middle of the normal range, and BP responded accordingly.

Like another reviewer, I have elevated aldosterone levels that increased my BP. Been on the generic equivalent for several years now. This medication has worked well for me. 100mg/day.
