Foods containing licorice

· Severity: Major

· Notes for Consumers: Licorice candy and foods containing licorice extract should be avoided when taking Spironolactone. Licorice can counteract (work against) the beneficial diuretic (resulting in water and sodium loss) actions of Spironolactone. If you are taking Spironolactone to treat high blood pressure or edema, and notice an increase in leg or ankle swelling (edema) or an increase in your blood pressure, tell your health care provider.

· Notes for Professionals: Licorice extract, which contains glycyrrhizic acid, possesses aldosterone-like properties. Thus, licorice candy and foods containing licorice extract should be avoided by patients taking spironolactone in order to not antagonize the drug's therapeutic actions.
