A web search for Side-effects of spironolactone (Brand Name Aldactone) yields this from the Mayo Clinic website: Side Effects: Incidence not known- hair loss or thinning of the hair.

Generalized discussions here and there suggest the initial dose of Aldactone and follow up dosing of spironolactone should be closely monitored. Check with your doctors.

While reading up on prednisone I found both hair loss and increased hair growth mentioned as side effects.

Be careful with the use of Oxycontin.
