Aldactone (spironolactone) is a potassium-sparing diuretic (water pill) that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt and keeps your potassium levels from getting too low. This drug is used to treat a condition when the aldosterone level in the blood becomes extremely high. The aldosterone hormone is necessary to regulate the balance of salt and water levels in the blood.
