You could be gaining weight because you're retaining some more water, or because its an androgen blocker which may/may not affect your ability to build muscle, since that's primarily regulated by male hormones.

Gotcha, just realized now that I got it, mixed up. Is there any way to keep my potassium levels in check without lowering my dose or stopping medication alltogether? I started spiro because my testosterone was skyrocket high. Maybe that's why I was so skinny before...
Usually you'll have signs and symptoms if your potassium level is too high: palpitations, muscle weakness, etc. Just drink plenty of fluids. Most people, if they don't have kidney problems, don't have any problem with high potassium levels.
And I guess it is possible that high levels of testosterone let you stay skinnier, especially if you had a decent amount of muscle.
