    Aldactone/Spironolactone and Breast Enlargemet

    Dear All,

    I am considering using Aldactone/Spiro but am quite worried by the idea of irreversible breast enlargement particularly as I am very small framed and despite being very thin have a substantial bust. If you experienced this side effect, I would appreciate your feedback and would specifically like to know if it was:

    1. Reversible?
    2. Sudden?
    3 .To what degreee (one cup size, two?)
    4. How long were you using Aldactone/Spiro for?
    5. What was the dose (100mg/200mg)?

    Thankyou in advance.

    I took Spiro for a long time - would have welcomed a few extra inches but no such luck! I would mention, however, that men who take it do have breast enlargement, according to a previous derm.

    I took spiro for about 1-2 years at varying dosages from 50-200mg per day. I actually lost weight on the drug so my breasts actually shrank because of that (maybe half a cup size). This was not really significant to me as I was large enough to begin with in that department to not mind a little less on top.

    I've been on Spiro for a little over 4 months now, and no breast enlargement as yet. However, I have noticed more lumps. I started on 100mg and have been on 125mg for the past month and a half.

    I could do with a little breast enlargment,lol. But what have your thoughts been on whether spiro works or not? A friend mentioned it to me today, said her friend took it for cystic acne but it helped her thinning hair too.

    Re: Aldactone/Spironolactone and Breast Enlargemet

    Hi Bronte18,

    I took Spiro 200mg for nearly 4 years and it did make my breasts larger and to be honest I appreciated it as I was at the back of the que when God gave out the big boobs. I remember spending my teenage years sunbathing on my belly the majority of time because of my small boobs - only when the beach was empty did I turn over and sunbathe on my back. I know as women we are not just boobs but part of me can't help feeling glad my daughter won't feel the same as me as she is much larger in the boob department.

    I have stopped the spiro for over 4 months and yeah the bigger boobs have stayed, but bugger I am too old now to sunbathe in a bikini now (48) . I can't say the spiro for me personally made my boobs more lumpy and I have in the past have had several benign lumps removed from my breasts, first being at 17 years of age.
