Diuretic Overview

A diuretic 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.

Combitic Global - is it a real pharmaceutical company?

I purchased what should have been Lasix 100 mg ..it says "Lusix 100 mg". The generic name should be furosemide and on the packaging it says "frusemide". There are no markings on the pills and I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? The envelope came from Combitic global caplet pvt ltd? Any suggestions? ## Honestly from the way you put it, this sounds like a classic case of a counterfeit. Deliberate misspellings for otherwise common drug names is the biggest red flag in my opinion. I'm not saying that Combitic Global Caplet is a fake manufacturer (though I could be mistaken), but perhaps whoever is distributing these products is putting on some sort of front for the real deal, if you know what I mean. On that note, Combitic Global Caplet does appea...

Is hydrochlorothiazide 25mg / triamterene 37.5mg tabs by Sandoz, greenish blue? ## Drug manufacturers can change the color or shape of any pill over a period of time without prior notice, so this is definitely something that you cannot asses unless you have the pill in your possession. Alternatively, if you can provide me the imprints and shape of the pill, I can look it up for you in a drug database and get back to you with any of these details. ## My mother has been on Triamterene/HCTZ 37.5/25 capsules for many years. The drug is manufactured by Sandoz. When she refilled the drug this weekend, she received tablets, not the capsules she had been getting.
