Diuretic Overview

A diuretic (/djrtk/) is any substance that promotes diuresis, the increased production of urine. This includes forced diuresis. There are several categories of diuretics. All diuretics increase the excretion of water from bodies, although each class does so in a distinct way. Alternatively, an antidiuretic, such as vasopressin (antidiuretic hormone), is an agent or drug which reduces the excretion of water in urine.

Triamterene-HCTZ 37.5/25mg and fluid retention

I have been prescribed this medication for inner ear treatment. My doctor told me to take a pill at about 8 o'clock in the morning because this medication will make me go to the ladies room 3 times more often than I usually do. I said that I don't need to go more often than I do because it was already many times more than what is normal. Even during the night time I'm going every 1-2 hours on some nights, but sometimes don't get up and just use the bathroom normally: before going to bed and after I get up. Some nights I can go just 1 time during my sleep cycle. My doctor still thinks that I need to take this medication daily anyway. I take it now like he prescribed, but received the opposite effect. After talking a pill at 8 o'clock in the morning I go to the bathroo...

potassium cl 10 meq er with lasix

I am a thyroidectomy hyperthyroidism 45 year old female with hypokalemia on 30 meq's a day but I also take 80 mgs of Lasix. 9 out of ten times my potassium is low but I have been eating so much food with potassium that mine was at 10 last time and I was in the emergency room and I cannot find a doctor, not at a hospital in my area that doesn't have a 3 month wait. Is there a way to get your blood taken without an emergency room? I have insurance, just do not trust hospitals. They treat you like a rotating door and you never accomplish anything. HELP. PLEASE. ## Your doctor can order blood work, some blood draws are done right at their office, or at the hospital lab, but neither requires you to go to the ER. What reason did they give for a 3 month wait? Usually, if you've had...

Triamt Hctz 37 5 25 Tab

Why aren't there triamt/hctz tabs available? As I cannot get my script filled by prescription solutions pharmacy? ## The manufacturers of this generic medication have reported a shortage of Triamterene to the FDA, however, a reason for the shortage was not provided. They originally estimated a full supply would return to the market by late last month, but this did not occur and no other information has been provided. In the meantime, the best advice I can give you is to speak to your doctor about using an alternative medication. A comparable one would be Aldactazide, which contains Spironolactone and Hydrochlorothiazide. Are there any other questions? ## Forget shortage. My local Walmart after saying "shortage" now says the mfg. is no longer making this drug. ## WHAT IS THE ...

ridaq and furosemide

My mother will be 90 years old in August 2019. She was prescribed Furosemide 40mg, 2 tablets in the morning and 1 tablet at 2pm. (prescribed after cardiac failure) She also drinks 1x Ridaq 12.5mg each morning after breakfast. Other medication is Isosorbide Dinitrate 10, 1 tablet 3x per day. She drinks +- 1.5lt water pd. She's complaining of having to get to the toilet 4/5x during night +- once every 30-45 during the day. Could the Furosemide and Ridaq dosages too much for her. Thank you ## That is a normal side effect of both Furosemide and the Hydrochlorothiazide in the Ridaq, they are both intended to remove excess fluid from her body to help prevent future congestive heart failure, they can also help to lower high blood pressure. She should make sure her doctor is aware of how of...

What Is Small Round yellow Pill M2?

pale yellow small round pill with M2 on one side ## Based on the description provided, the closest match I could find is identified as Furosemide 20 mg; which has M2 imprinted on one side and blank on the other. The only difference is that this particular pill is "off-white" and not yellow. I noticed however that you described it as a "pale" yellow, so I can only speculate that this could still be a viable match. Manufacturer: Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc. National Drug Code (NDC): 00378-0208 For verification, you can also compare the size of your pill to this one, which happens to be 6.00 mm You can learn more about this drug on the page for Furosemide Details I hope this helps! ## What is a yellow pill with M2 on one side and a M on the other side?
