Frequently asked questions about Triamterene/HCTZ

What is Triamterene/HCTZ?

Triamterene HCTZ is a combination prescription drug used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and edema (swelling/fluid retention) in patients with low levels of potassium in their bodies.

High blood pressure is a dangerous – potentially fatal – condition in which the heart is met with too much resistance from blocked or narrowed arteries as it tries to pump blood and oxygen around your body. When not treated, high blood pressure can lead to an array of serious health issues including heart attack, heart failure, stroke, and many more complications. Nearly half of Americans have high blood pressure, and heart disease is the leading cause of death of people in the United States.

Talk to your doctor about whether triamterene HCTZ may be right for you.

What is Triamterene/HCTZ used to treat?

The FDA has approved this medication for the treatment of high blood pressure or edema in patients who develop hypokalemia (extremely low potassium levels) when using HCTZ alone and in patients for whom hypokalemia could be a serious complication (such as patients with a history of heart problems).

How does Triamterene/HCTZ work?

Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) is a thiazide diuretic. It works by stimulating your kidneys to get rid of your body’s excess salt and water via urine (for this reason it is sometimes referred to as a “water pill”). Triamterene is a potassium-sparing diuretic. Sometimes diuretics can cause you to lose valuable electrolytes such as potassium through the increased amount of urine. Triamterene helps to get rid of unwanted salts and water, without losing needed minerals.

What are the most common side effects of Triamterene/HCTZ?

While adverse reactions to Triamterene/HCTZ are uncommon, some patients who take the drug have been known to experience mild side effects, including frequent urination, headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, and upset stomach. Tell your doctor if any of these effects do not go away or are severe.

Rare, more serious adverse events have been known to occur. Get immediate medical attention if you experience any signs of an allergic reaction (rash, hives, itching, swelling, difficulty breathing or swallowing, etc); flu-like symptoms; changes to your heartbeat; yellowing of your skin or eyes; pain, swelling, or tenderness in your stomach; feelings of numbness, tingling, or burning on your skin.

Talk to your doctor about your medical history - particularly if you have or have had kidney stones, lupus, diabetes, gout, high potassium, or heart, thyroid, liver, or kidney disease. Inform your doctor of all known allergies and of all medications and supplements that you take. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.

This is not a complete list of side effects or precautions. For more information please visit the National Institutes of Health’s DailyMed webpage for triamterene & hydrochlorothiazide.

How long does it take for Triamterene/HCTZ to work?

The onset of diuretic effects occurs within 2 hours of taking the medication with peak action taking place at approximately 4 hours. The diuretic effects will last for 6 to 12 hours.

What is the typical starting dose of Triamterene/HCTZ?

A typical starting dose is 1-2 tablets containing 37.5 mg triamterene and 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide daily. Your dosage may vary depending on your medical condition and your response to treatment.
