I’m 47 and peri menopausal. I have a severe hormonal imbalance and have been prescribed 100 mg of Spironolactone to bring my hormones back into balance. I am supposed to start taking it this week. I’m really hoping it helps. I have gained 12 pounds in the last 2 1/2 months. My dr says that the Spironolactone will help me lose the weight. With all the research I’ve found it seems that the majority of people GAIN weight on this medication. Is there hope out there or am I doomed?
