Once you make that substitution, you need to add a mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist, spironolactone or eplerenone.
It was recently reported that the addition of eplerenone to background angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) or angiotensin receptor blocker therapy attenuates the progressive decline in the left ventricular systolic function in DMD patients with preserved ejection fraction.

Some patients also may benefit from taking aldosterone antagonists like spironolactone (Aldactone[R]) or eplerenone (Inspra[R]).
Hyperkalemia is also a potential concern if salt substitutes are used with certain blood pressure medications that cause your body to retain potassium, such as angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors--benazepril (Lotensin[R]), enalapril (Vasotec[R]), lisinopril (Prinivil[R], Zestril[R]), and quinapril (Accupril[R]) are examples--and potassium-sparing diuretics--amiloride (Midamor[R]), eplerenone (Inspra[R]), spironolactone (Aldactone[R]), and triamterene (Dyrenium[R]).

Bertram PittKnown worldwide as a heart failure expert and the lead investigator in many pivotal clinical trials on the disease, Pitt presented a comprehensive overview of the clinical trial evidence which supports the use of mineralocortoid receptor (MRAs) such as Spironolactone and Eplerenone in the management of heart failure.
Mainly because of non-selective affinity of spironolactone for androgen, estrogen and progesterone receptors in humans, a new generation of aldosterone antagonists, eplerenone, began to be used in human patients with primary hyperaldosteronism (KARAGIANNIS et al.
