Triteren Dosage Forms


Triteren Indication

For the treatment of edema associated with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, and the nephrotic syndrome; also in steroid-induced edema, idiopathic edema, and edema due to secondary hyperaldosteronism.

Triteren Pharmacology

Triamterene, a relatively weak, potassium-sparing distal tubule diuretic and antihypertensive, is used in the management of hypokalemia. Triamterene is similar in action to amiloride but, unlike amiloride, increases the urinary excretion of magnesium.

Triteren Absorption

Rapidly absorbed, with somewhat less than 50% of the oral dose reaching the urine.

If a single daily dose is prescribed, it may be preferable to take it in the morning to minimize the effect of increased frequency of urination on nighttime sleep.

If a dose is missed, the patient should not take more than the prescribed dose at the next dosing interval.
