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. She is 86 years old, and concerned about possible side effects of changing the medication form. Are the capsules still available?

I have generic Maxide 37.5/25 tablets made by Sandoz. They are light green. Markings: GG on top of pill and 165 on bottom of pill. 2 small score lines only near edges. No markings on other side of pill.

I was able to confirm that the light green pill in description marked GG165 on the manufacturer's webpage.

According to my pharmacist, the capsules are not currently available. Various generic tablet formulations are being dispensed as an alternative. There should not be any difference in the effectiveness of the medication; however, your pharmacist should have explained this to you and informed you of the change prior to refill. Please discuss with him or her.

Ed Says:

Mine changed also. Given the recent disclosure that some generics failed to properly dissolve, I'm thinking maybe Sandoz is trying to get ahead of the curve by moving from a capsule to a pill. What a lot of folks don't realize is generics may have the same basic ingredients as the brand name, but the fillers and other non-medical ingredients vary considerably. Sooner or later our insurance companies are going to figure out that they're not saving any money by forcing use of generics which don't do the job or have unintended side effects.

I used to take green rounded tabs triamterene/ hctz 37.5/25 by Sandoz and they worked pretty good. Just recently on the refill they filled it with green peanut shape pills from the same mfr but I noticed that they are not working as good as the other. My BP went up. Also, I was not able to find that kind of shaped pills on drug identifier Any ideas? Thank you.

NN Says:

Same thing here. Not helping at all on fluid retention. Never had this problem with the round ones or actually any other shape or color. I had to wait several days for the pharmacy to get these in before they could fill the prescription, once they got them in they told me they looked different but are the same. I had trouble at first finding any information about them from the markings on the pills but later checked online and it showed correct name, same manufacturer. This is the first time that i've had any issue with this not being effective, and in a big way, so that's my reason to see if anyone else has had or having issues of ineffectiveness.

They light green color, round shape with GG165 imprint, these are working well. Also, there are some other shapes of pills available, but I am using round.
The new one from Sandoz green peanut with SZ431 imprint are not working at all, also I was not able to find them on drug identifier, this is why it raised my concern If Sandoz will stop making GG165 I will be in trouble...

V needs to know Says:

I have been taking Triamterene/HCTZ 37.5-25MG TAB for a while now [changed from Dyazide]. My previous refill came in as round green tablets with an imprint of "GG 165". Today another refill came in as "Bow-Tie" with an imprint of "SZ -431".

Need to know if they're the same meds...

NN , I have read your problem with Sandoz green peanuts shape tablets. What you can do is to report it to the company (Sandoz) and FDA. I did it myself. Hopefully they will figure out what in the pill formulation is preventing the main ingredient to do a proper job and help to lower BO. Otherwise, we just need to look for different manufacturers of this medication.

KC Says:

I agree with the folks above, have taken Sandoz generic round blue GG 165 for years for HBP, my pharmacy changed to the mint green peanut shape SZ 431 for my new refill. Have been on it for 12 days now and my blood pressure is up and I am retaining fluid. I plan to notify Sandoz for this adverse reaction (Google them) for their 800 # or email address (by the country you are in) and also to make an appoint with my MD and notify my HMO pharmacy.

Same here with switch to peanut shaped Sandoz generic. More swollen, BP is elevated, and tinnitus is much worse. Why do manufacturers ruin a good product?

DH Says:

I noticed the new bow tie/peanut shape when my prescription was all of a sudden $10 cheaper than the last time I picked it up. On the label, it's the same manufacturer, same dosage (exact same label), but instead of small green (with GG 165) it was light green, bow tie shape with SZ431 printed on it. I called the pharmacy and they tried to tell me it was a different MFG, even though I told them it still listed MFG as Sandoz on the label. Pharmacist said it's what they're sent, they don't have control, and maybe the bow tie shape uses a different filler and I'm sensitive to it. All I knew was that I became uncomfortably bloated and my feet were swelling before I realized what was happening. I currently take 1 1/2 of the bow tie shape each day (instead of 1), which is working - until they can tell me the what, where, and why of what is going on.

Re: DH (# 18)

There are different manufacturers, for example - Mylan. You can ask if your pharmacy can order meds from them for you.

Re: DH (# 18)

I was in the same boat with the "new" Sandoz 37.5/25 pill. I became extremely lethargic and slept the second day I was on the pills...the entire day. Muscle and joint pain and weakness. Bloating in my stomach. Wheezing in my chest after the second pill. I call Sandoz and made them take a report. Totally different make-up with fillers and binders than the original pill. I did see Yellow Dye #10 in the new pill and I have a feeling that's what I'm allergic to. Had another medicine years ago that contained that dye and same problem. I'm SO ANGRY and now am back to being a guinea pig until I find something else that works.
