DrugDrug Description
TriamtereneA potassium-sparing diuretic used in the treatment of edema and in the management of hypertension.
AmilorideA pyrizine compound used to treat hypertension and congestive heart failure.
SpironolactoneAn aldosterone receptor antagonist used for the treatment of hypertension, hyperaldosteronism, edema due to various conditions, hirsutism (off-label) and hypokalemia.
EplerenoneAn aldosterone receptor antagonist used to improve survival of patients with symptomatic heart failure and to reduce blood pressure.
Canrenoic acidCanrenoic acid (as the salt potassium canrenoate) is an aldosterone antagonist. Like spironolactone, it is a prodrug, which is metabolized to canrenone in the body.
CanrenoneCanrenone has been used in trials studying the diagnostic of Heart Failure.
