Does anyone have experience of taking Spironolactone? I've been on Furosemide 2 x 40 mg for ages but it's started giving me very painful episodes of gout, the last one in my hand, which interfered with everything, in addition to being excruciating. I'm 4 days in to 2 x 50 of Spironolactone instead but it's not working nearly as well, making me more breathless. I also lay awake most of the night because of a sore stomach and I feel a bit dizzy and weepy too. Any thoughts gratefully received.
