A potassium-sparing diuretic, whose action is caused by antagonism with aldosterone (MCN hormone of the adrenal cortex), which facilitates the inverse absorption of Na + in the renal tubules and the excretion of K +. Spironolactone (active ingredient of Aldactone) is a competitive antagonist of aldosterone in its effect on distal nephron sections (competes for binding sites on cytoplasmic protein receptors, reduces synthesis of permeases in the aldosterone-dependent region of collecting ducts and distal tubules), increases the excretion of Na +, Cl- and water and Reduces the excretion of K + and urea, reduces the titratable acidity of urine. Strengthening diuresis causes a hypotensive effect, which is unstable. The diuretic effect is manifested on the 2nd-5th day of treatment.
