Hi.  I am going thru menopause and my face is extremely oilet.  My doc put me on Spirolactone for this.  Is this OK to take?  Also I am already on 2 water pills...lasix.and HCTZ, will this interfere with those?  Or will I urinate more?  Iam on the other 2 water pills for autoimmune thyroid. Thanks!!

Hi there!

Though the medication could have potential side effects and could interact with other medication to produce increased effects/ side effects; the decision to start or stop a medications is best taken  by your treating doctor based on the benefits versus risk approach. If your doctor has prescribed spironolactone knowing the other medications you are on, this is likely to be fine.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
