... Hi, hope I still can help. I have been taking Aldactone for a year and a half. It is a potassium absorber, so one of the risks is having too much potassium in your system. It has greatly helped me with facial/body hair, acne, oily skin and other over production of androgen-related symptoms. It always can cause breast enlargement, which can be annoying or not, depending.... (11 replies)
