Hello, I am taking spironolactone since 2009 and got pregnant in 2011. My endocrinologist decided to stop the spiro right away and changed it to K-dur, and the whole pregnancy went well and have a very healthy baby girl. You must talk to your doctor right away.
How long did she take it while she was pregnant? I would ask the ob dr doc about it for sure. It can harm a fetus, but it says in some cases the need outweighs the risk.
