Hydrochlorothiazide/triamterene, also known as co-triamterzide, is a combination medication of hydrochlorothiazide and triamterene. It is used to treat high blood pressure and swelling. Specifically it is used in those who develop low blood potassium when on only hydrochlorothiazide. It is taken by mouth.
Side effects may include nausea, trouble sleeping, dizziness, feeling light headed with standing, kidney problems, allergies, and muscle cramps. Other serious side effects may include high blood potassium. Use in pregnancy and breastfeeding is not generally recommended. Use in those with significant kidney problems is not recommended. It decreases blood pressure mainly by hydrochlorothiazide while triamterene decreases the amount of potassium lost.
