It is a white to off-white powder, a potassium-sparing diuretic that competitively inhibits mineralocorticoid receptors in the distal convoluted tubule to promote sodium and water excretion and potassium retention.
Doctors would prescribe it to treat several conditions including heart failure, deem, hyperaldosteronism, adrenal hyperplasia, hypertension, and nephrotic syndrome.
Its off-label uses include hirsutism(extra facial hair), female pattern hair loss, and adult acne vulgaris.
Reportedly it is also frequently used in medical gender transition.

What Is Spironolactone Used For?
It is mainly used for:
1. New York Heart Association Class III-IV heart failure;
2. Edema in cirrhotic adults not responsive to fluid and sodium restrictions;
3. Primary hyperaldosteronism short-term preoperatively
4. Primary hyperaldosteronism long-term in patients with aldosterone-producing adrenal adenomas that are not candidates for surgery or patients with bilateral micro/macronodular adrenal hyperplasia
5. Add-on therapy in hypertension, and nephrotic syndrome when treatment of the disease, as well as fluid and sodium restriction with other diuretics, is inadequate.
6. Hirsutism, female pattern hair loss, and adult acne vulgaris.
Spironolactone is also frequently used for its antiandrogenic effects in transgender female patients due to its low cost and reducing male-pattern hair growth.
Spironolactone vs Eflornithine
As we all know, both spironolactone and eflornithine hydrochloride can be used for female facial hirsutism, but what are their differences?
#1. Dosage forms
Spironolactone is made into tablets or oral suspensions but never used topically.
While eflornithine is mainly made into topical creams well-known as Vaniqa of Gillette.
There was an eflornithine injection, but it was discontinued for safety reasons.
#2. Working Mechanism
Spironolactone is also used for facial hirsutism due to its androgen-blocking ability.
It works by blocking androgen’s ability to affect the human body.
It is similar to finasteride in the androgen blocking mechanism.
But it may take 3 to 6 months for spironolactone to work.
Many will use birth control pills together with spironolactone for a better facial-hair-ridding effect because birth control pills can reduce androgen production.
Eflornithine hydrochloride is also used to treat hirsutism, but it works by interfering with a chemical in hair follicles under the skin to slow hair growth when applied topically.
Please note, that eflornithine topical does not permanently remove facial hair or prevent hair growth.
#3. Social influence
The topical eflornithine cream has long been indicated for the treatment of facial hirsutism in women.
Eflornithine cream is the main-stream cure for hirsutism, while spironolactone is only auxiliary.
In clinical studies with Vaniqa, 81% percent of women showed clinical improvement after twelve months of treatment.
Positive results were seen after eight weeks.
However, discontinuation of the cream caused regrowth of hair back to baseline levels within 8 weeks.
But eflornithine topical cream does significantly reduce the psychological burden of facial hair.
Due to the small demand for eflornithine hydrochloride in the market, eflornithine did not get commercially produced in China and its price has been very high.
While spironolactone has been commercially produced long ago, the cost of spironolactone is only 1/10 of eflornithine.

The therapeutic efficacy of 4-Methoxyamphetamine, 4-Bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine, Abediterol and Abiraterone could be decreased when used in combination with it.
It may increase the excretion rate of Acarbose which could result in a lower serum level and potentially a reduction in efficacy.
The risk or severity of hyperkalemia can be increased when it is combined with Acebutolol.
It has negative interactions with but is not limited to the following active pharmaceutical ingredients:
Lithium; ACE inhibitors such as benazepril;
Angiotensin II receptor blockers such as azilsartan; Digoxin; Cholestyramine;
Steroids such as progesterone, prednisone, medroxyprogesterone;
