Also there is a newer generation Spironolactone but my cardiologist said it has not been tested for cardiac issues as well..as in PAH..so they don’t recommend unless side effects of Spironolactone…are intolerable.

I am on Spironolactone for this as it is potassium sparing. It does have side effects and a scary write up which I hate. But when questioned, it is the only possibility since my potassium chloride got very low on hydrochlorothiazide. Good luck and
Keep looking. 😔

Sorry to hear that Suzette. I hope your doctor can try another diuretic that will be more effective. When do you follow-up with him/her?

P.S. Have you been tried on Torsemide yet?
