Table of contents:

Midamor is a prescription medicine used to treat high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. Amiloride HCl is the active ingredient in Midamor, and it belongs to a class of drugs called potassium-sparing diuretics or water pills. It works by preventing the body from absorbing too much salt, which can help to lower blood pressure and reduce fluid buildup in the body.

Amiloride can be used to treat or prevent hypokalemia (low potassium levels in the blood) in people with high blood pressure or congestive heart failure. It may be used alone or with other medications.

Uses and Dosage

Amiloride is typically prescribed as a tablet that is taken orally with food, once daily, following your doctor's instructions. Take the medication at least 4 hours before bedtime to reduce the need to wake up to urinate. If you have any questions about how and when to take Amiloride, consult with your doctor or pharmacist. Your dosage will depend on your medical condition and response to treatment.

To maximize the benefits of Amiloride, use the tablet regularly and try to take it at the same time each day. Continue taking the medication even if you are feeling well, as most people with high blood pressure or edema do not experience symptoms. If your condition does not improve or your blood pressure readings remain high or increase, inform your doctor promptly.

The recommended dosage of Amiloride depends on the individual's medical condition and response to treatment. The typical starting dose is usually 5 milligrams (mg) taken once a day, and the dosage may be increased gradually over time, up to a maximum dose of 20 mg per day. However, the dosage can vary, so you should always follow your doctor's instructions regarding dosage and any dosage adjustments.
