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!
