Strange Chest Pain-Should I Associate It With Spiro?

9 posts in this topic

A few times I got strange.not strong but still very suspicious,chest pains some time after taking spiro.I take 50mgs daily so its not a big dose..And there is nothing about chest pains in the leaflet of the drug..It happened only a few times...have you had it???Or is it a coincidence?May the fact that I also take doxyciline(in other time of the day) affect it?

50 mg is a really low dose, it shouldn't give you such side effects.

Is it a chest pain coming from the inside? Like rapid heart beats? Or chest pain from the breasts? Spiro can make your breasts a little bigger, so sometimes its tender and painful because they swell some. If you are really concerned then you should talk to your doctor about it.

yes its from the inside..rapid heartbits sometimes..but not very serious..just strange...What does it mean?

I will talk to the doc in a few weeks..just wonder if I should stop it immediately.

It can sometimes happen with spironolactone because it is a diuretic. If it happens a lot or often, give your doctor a call and ask him if he thinks you should stop it. I would call the office and see what he says. I know it can happen, but depending on how your doctor feels he may want to stop it.

I just stopped taking it because I was worried about these chests pains..I am a hypohondriac so you know..I couldnt stand it and I will wait for the doctor to say sth about it..but as it usually is here..when any side effects occur from taking such a drug for sth so stupid and meaningless as acne,they make you stop taking it..I would rather have my own opinions.You think the chest pains would stop after some time ???

It just depends how your body reacts to the drug.

Can you call your doctor and ask? Rather than waiting to see him?

The thing you need to worry about most with spiro is your potassium levels. Your doctor should give you a potassium level test every few months for the first year on spiro, and anytime you up your dose.
