How does Carospir (Spironolactone) for Oral Suspension work?
Carospir (Spironolactone) and its active metabolites are exact pharmacologic antagonists of aldosterone. It acts mainly through reasonable binding of receptors at the aldosterone-dependent sodium-potassium exchange site in the distal convoluted renal tubule. This medication causes bigger quantities of water and sodium to be excreted and potassium is retained. This acts both as an antihypertensive drug and as a diuretic by this mechanism. This may be given alone or with other diuretic agents that act more proximally in the renal tubule.
