I was told that aldactone is potassium spareing diuretec. Which is good. I normally take hydrochlorothiazide which is a glorified lasix i belive. I cut 6 to 7 lbs overnight. I dont eat the next day and chew on very very little amount of shaved ice if a must to make fight weight at 185. Is aldactone better and 3easier on the body. I was told it doesnt work over night it takes a week to get it off.
