Diuretic Overview

A diuretic (/dajrtk/) is any substance that promotes diuresis, the increased production of urine. This includes forced diuresis. A diuretic tablet is sometimes colloquially called a water tablet. There are several categories of diuretics. All diuretics increase the excretion of water from the body, through the kidneys. There exist several classes of diuretic, and each works in a distinct way. Alternatively, an antidiuretic, such as vasopressin (antidiuretic hormone), is an agent or drug which...

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...

Purosemide

Generic name, classification, dosage mechanism of action indication, contraindication side effects nursing consideration ## I need to know what it is ## This is most likely a misspelling of the drug Furosemide, which is a loop diuretic medication used to treat fluid build-up due to heart failure, liver scarring, or kidney disease.

Hydrochlorothiazide lip swelling and burning rash

Anyone experience this? Been on HCTZ for 7 or 8 years and now all of a sudden this burning redness is killing me? ## That is odd, but it is not impossible to suddenly have a reaction to something that you have been taking, before, without issue. Has anything else changed, recently? Are you on any other medications? Are you using any new skin care products? Are the current tablets from a different manufacturer? Have you informed your doctor of the problem? You may need medical attention, and/or to try a different medication. The typical side effects of Hydrochlorothiazide, according to FDA reports, usually include: nausea, dizziness, headache, dehydration, and increased urination.

prexum plus 5mg versus prexum 5mg

what is the difference between the two, prexum plus 5mg versus prexum 5mg. My pharmacy insists they the same, then why the difference with the plus? ## can i take prexum plus 5mg if Dr prescribed prexum plus 4mg pharmacist gave me 5mg ## Hello Debbie, From what I can find on these drugs the only difference between the two is that Prexum Plus also contains the active ingredient Indapamide - 1.25Mg. Indapamide is used to reduce high blood pressure and reduce extra salt and fluid in the body. If your doctor is prescribing your Prexum for the use of the active ingredient perindopril arginine then there will be no difference between the two. I hope this information helps. ## Can I take Prexum Plus together with Prexum 4mg?

Triamt/hctz is there an OTC for this?

I had open heart surgery in 2000, no problems since. Doc. put me on this medication and won't refill without a office visit ($100 minimum). With rising cost, I have no medical ins. to help me out with the cost of the visit. The meds are only $4 a month, but can't get a script without a office visit. Sad isn't it? It seems that the money pinch will get you somewhere. Please I need to know if there is an over the counter for this medication. ## Just go to the free clinic and a doctor will give you a script hey i understand your health insurance problem and i pay taxes so forget being ashamed about the free clinic ## Unfortunately, most doctors will not continue to prescribe, without an office visit, because they need to monitor your condition. As Grady has stated, a free, or s...
