      The aldactone has acts by decreasing the amount aldosterone in your body. The short vewrsion is this, Aldosterone controls sodium levels so by reducing the aldosterone levels you are telling the body to eliminate sodium. By eliminating sodium you hold less water. Two reasons for starting aldactone a few days early, it takes time to flush out the sodium stores already buit-up in the body, and is that it is not "pulling" water from the body like a true diueretic but rather it decreases one of the bodies mechanisms for holding water, however you need to use natural means causing of diuerisis such as drinking large amounts of water all day.
      Now diazide does actually pull the water from the body through chemical manipulation, thereby drying you out more quickly, this is why it is only usedthe last day.
      Both are potassium sparing so you should not use any extra potassium.

          Kidrok, i got two shows one week apart...should i use the diazide for the first show and then use aldactone for the next one since diazide is strong enough to be used only for the last day before the show? then on the wednesday after the first show start aldactone low doses for the second show...what d'ya think?

            tough call cause the rebound can get ya if not careful. I was in a similar situation last year and thats what I did, water loaded all week for the 1st, took 1/2 diazide(25mg) friday night and another 1/2 saturday morning. After the show Saturday night drank a bottle of pedialite to help restore electrolytes (btw, pedialite tastes like shit in my opinion, now I go with gatorade). I was bloated as hell the next 2 days but kept the water over 2 gals a day to flush it all out. I did not run aldactone at all the 2nd week either but basically did the same thing as the 1st week. It worked for me that time but keep in mind it is a gamble! If I had to do it again then I would do aldactone the 2nd week, but prob not start till tues. Just my thoughts.

              i also have 2 shows one week apart, and was planning on doing the dyazide friday and saturday before each show. would this create a problem?? the first show is basically a warm-up show, and was thinking of not using any diuretic, would this be better or should i go ahead and run it for both shows?

              thanx

                If you don't need it for the 1st show then don't use it. Less chance of rebound that way. Most people don't realize that with ANY water manipulation, whether done by natural means or with diueretic, WILL cause some degree of rebound! That is how the body tries to equalize itself.

                  true, i did a trial run with Lasix(which i wont be using) and had a huge rebound, i must have sucked in 10 extra pounds of water, lol and looked fuckin huge.
                  But, do you think 1 week is enough to recover from a mild diuretic like dyazide?
                  What harm do you think it will cause for the 2nd show?


                  thanx again bro

                    Yo kid you sure on the dyazide being a K sparing diuretic I thought it wasnt..... I thought it was a loop like lasik?! I got a script from a doc for a diuretic exactly like dyazide except the script was K sparing.....

                      Yes I am sure, been on BP meds for past 2 years and it has it in there. Also just do a search in Yahoo plenty of medical information sites you can read up on.

                        What is the current state of people using diuretics? Are the teens and college guys using them too in competions? Or do they only use 'natural' diuretics?
