Actavis Triamterene-HCTZ 37.5-25 mg tablet

Where is the manufacture of Actavis generic drug, Triamterene-HCTZ (37.5-25 mg) tablets before distribution? ## Hello Ro, I'm having a hard time determining what your question is. Actavis is the manufacturer/labeler of this medication so they are the source of the pill prior to distribution. If you are asking about the location of the Actavis plant that manufactured your pill it would be difficult to say as they have plants all around the world to include Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Northern-Ireland, Italy, Malta, Puerto Rico, Romania, Singapore, Serbia, Thailand, the UK and the US. One way that you could trace the origin of your medication is to find the batch number on the package that the medicine came in ...

Going off Triamterene

I have been on Triamterene for a month. I was using this for possible Menierre Disease. However, after a second opinion I was told it was not Menierres and to get off pill. Will I experience any withdrawal symptoms after being on it for a short time? ## How did you find out it wasn't Meneer's Disease? What is your diagnosis as of now? I was diagnosed with Meneer's Disease and get super dizzy and have to force myself to go to sleep. Even then I wake up with it still. It's the absolute worst feeling I don't wish it upon my worst enemy!!! I've tried every drug in that catorgy n as of now I'm on Promethazine. I'm supposed to take it every day but I only take it when I have an attack or feel it coming on. It sucks to live day to day not knowing when I'm go...

Sandoz Triamterene 37.5 Mg / Hctz 25mg Tabs

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

triamterene hctz-going off the med

I have been taking triamterene/hctz for over 10 years. My doctor at the time put me on it for water retention. I recently had to switch doctors and she wouldn't refill it for me because she says it's not good for my health. Well the first day I was off the med, I started retaining a lot of water in my fingers legs feet. If I want to reduce the retention, I have to get off my feet and elevate them. I am so frustrated and unhappy and uncomfortable and am worried the retention is always going to be a problem. Anyone else have this happen and can help me with info what to do? I am thinking of going back to one of the doctors I had been going to knowing she will prescribe me some kind of diuretic ## Hello, Donna! How are you? Yes, letting retention continue like that can be very dang...

Triamterene Hctz 37 5 25 Mg

I went to refill my prescription and for the first time in 12 years it is "not available". I have been switched but is this shortage mean its been discontinued? I do not seem to be doing as well with the replacement (retaining fluid more) and want my old medicine back! ## It has not been discontinued, at this time, according to the reports that are listed by the FDA, but that could change. The manufacturers have had a shortage of the Triamterene, but they haven't given any explanation as to why and most reported that it would be back on the market in April and May, which has clearly not happened, yet. What medication were you switched to? ## I was switched to hydrochlorot 25 mg...pharmacy told me yesterday they are getting no info except still unavailable. Thanks ## Then the...

Can taking triamterene 37 5 25 daily cause vasculitis

Have been dignosed with vasculitis. Am told my triamterene may have caused it. Have been taking triamterne 37.5/25 for many years with no problem. Vasculitis occurred approx 2 years ago. Any association? Doctor can find no other reason for my vasculitis in both ankles. ## Hello, Vetolia! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Yes, this medication has been known to cause vasculitis in some people that take it, as listed by the FDA. Other possible side effects may include nausea, dizziness, dry cough, increased urination and hypotension. Regardless of how long you've taken something, it's always possible to suddenly experience a new reaction or complication, because our bodies do change with time. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks Verw...

have had meds triamterene/hctz 37.5/25mg since 12/27/06 can i still take them

can I still take this meds ## I have amox/k dated 4-07-09 is this medicine still good? ## If these are in a bottle as dispensed by your pharmacy, they are generally good for one year from the date you have received them, after that, they begin to lose efficacy, since that exposes them to the elements that cause degradation, such as heat, light, and moisture, according to FDA regulations. However, if they are still in the original, unopened factory sealed container, they are usually good for approximately 4 to 5 years. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, headache, and hypotension. Are there any other questions?

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...

triamterene phentermine

diet pills ## Are these 2 seperate drugs or both combined for a single pill? There is info for Traimterene and Phentermine seperately, not sure if they are ever combined into a single pill though. Jake ## Jacob is correct, these are not available in a single tablet, but they are available separately, via prescription. The FDA warns that Phentermine is a stimulant, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, and anorexia. Triamterene is listed as possibly causing side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Are there any other questions?

Triamterene-HTCZ: Yellow and green pill with gg

Did Mylan ever package Triamterene-HTCZ 37.5-25 MG CP that wasn't dispensed in bottles? My drugstore hunted for us and found the yellow & green pill, but it's not in a bottle, just a yellow flat pk. Is it counterfeit? ## There is no specific way a manufacturer is required to package a medication. While most use bottles, since it is cheaper, and more convenient, not all of them do. What are the markings on them? Can you please post back with this additional information? That is what would enable me to double check the contents for you. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension.
