Canrenone (INN, USAN) (brand names Contaren, Luvion, Phanurane, Spiroletan) is an aldosterone antagonist with additional antiandrogen properties which is used as a diuretic in Europe.[1][2]

Carenone is a major active metabolite of spironolactone, canrenoic acid, and potassium canrenoate, and is believed to be partially responsible for their effects.
