Drowsiness, lethargy and mental confusion are expected with spironolactone. However, it’s frequency is low. Dose adjustment should be done to look for improvement in consultation with your doctor. If the emotional disturbance continues and is intolerable then spironolactone can be discontinued and alternatives can be suggested.
