Triamterene-HCTZ is a combination of triamterene and hydrochlorothiazide which is used to treat high blood pressure and swelling which is caused by excess body water.
This drug causes kidneys to eliminate unneeded water and salt from the body through frequent urination. Triamterene-HCTZ is taken orally in the form of a tablet or capsule, and should be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
Common side effects users may experience include upset stomach, diarrhea, vomiting, loss of appetite, stomach pain, gas, headache and dizziness. More severe side effects include rashes, difficulty breathing and difficulty swallowing. If you are experiencing any of the more severe side effects, contact your doctor immediately.
Occasionally, Triamterene-HCTZ is prescribed for other purposes, as suggested by your doctor.
