whats the deal with potassium intake while running aldactone?
picked up 10 tabs from my buddy, he tells me NOT TO have any potassium, zero, or it can kill me. Whats the deal on this? I know with lasix you need potassium, but what about aldactone, clue me in please

Aldactone (spironolactone) is a potassium-sparing diuretic. You needn't replace potassium while taking spironolactone. However, if you only have 10 tabs, I highly doubt that would kill you.

he is telling me to take 2/day the 5 days leading up to the show. From what I've been reading most guys are hitting the diuretics the day before and day of the show. Is 5 days out a little early to start shedding water weight or no? Not water depleting, but same water consumption(1.5-2 gal) just w/ the diuretics, then depletion 18-20 hours before the prejudging. Any thoughts on this anybody??
