Spironolactone for PMS

Taken only during the premenstrual phase, spironolactone blocks the body's use of the Reference hormone Opens New Window aldosterone, which causes fluid retention in the body. This has a Reference diuretic Opens New Window effect, eliminating excess salt and water from the body.
