Potassium canrenoate (INN, JAN) or canrenoate potassium (USAN) (brand names Venactone, Soldactone), also known as aldadiene kalium,[1] the potassium salt of canrenoic acid, is an aldosterone antagonist of the spirolactone group.[2] Like spironolactone, it is a prodrug, which is metabolized to canrenone in the body. Potassium canrenoate is not licensed in the UK, but may sometimes be prescribed off-licence to treat oedema. It is given intravenously.
