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.

A 328 R and moon crescent logo

These pills were given to me as Furosemide but when I searched for A328 they show as thyroid tablets. Been taking them for almost three months now. What are they? ## The "R and moon crescent" that you listed in title sounds like the actavis logo. Can you confirm that the logo is on your pills? Also, were these dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States, or are they from a different country? ## Yes. The logo is on one side and the A328 on the other. Walgreens ## Does it look like this? The closest possibility that I've found along these lines is the same as what you're saying - a thyroid pill containing Methimazole 5 mg. The only thing is that it's not reported to have the R and Logo on the back side, but based on the fact that it was manufactured by Actavis Totowa...

Hydrochlorothiazide/25mg effects?

What are the effects of this drug? Are there any side effects? ## half the 25 mg prescribed for HBP; need to know about side effects; cannot sleep; mouth sore..thanks ## Is this safe. for long term use. hydrochlorot 25mg. ## In regards to posts like this, it is very important that it always be stated that every medication carries the risk of causing side effects, even over the counter products. I know some doctors claim that they don't, but they are either uninformed or are trying to keep you from being afraid of taking a medication they feel you need. However, when something is prescribed for you, always just assume that it may cause side effects. You may be lucky and not experience any, but there's no way of knowing ahead of time. As to the Hydrochlorothiazide, it is a diureti...

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...

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.
