Table of contents:

Dyazide is a prescription medicine used to treat high blood pressure and to reduce fluid retention (edema) caused by various health conditions, such as heart failure, liver disease, or kidney disease.

Dyazide contains a combination of two diuretics: hydrochlorothiazide and triamterene. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic that helps to remove excess salt and water from the body, while triamterene is a potassium-sparing diuretic that helps to prevent the loss of potassium through urine.

Uses and Dosage

Dyazide is available in the form of capsules for oral use and should be taken as directed by a healthcare provider. To use Dyazide, take the medication by mouth as directed by your healthcare provider, usually once daily in the morning with or without food. Swallow the capsule whole and drink a glass of water thereafter. Note that you must avoid taking this drug 4 hours prior to bedtime to prevent having to get up to pee.

Avoid taking Dyazide in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended by your healthcare provider. Also, follow any other instructions provided by your healthcare provider regarding your treatment with Dyazide. Talk to your healthcare provider about any questions or concerns regarding the use of Dyazide.

Take it at the same time each day to help maintain a consistent level of medication in your body. The typical dose of Dyazide is 1 or 2 capsules taken by mouth once a day.
