Timolide (Timolol Maleate / Hydrochlorothiazide) - Summary

 
 



TIMOLIDE SUMMARY

TIMOLIDE (Timolol Maleate-Hydrochlorothiazide) is for the treatment of hypertension. It combines the antihypertensive activity of two agents: a non-selective beta-adrenergic receptor blocking agent (timolol maleate) and a diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide).

TIMOLIDE is indicated for the treatment of hypertension.

This fixed combination drug is not indicated for initial therapy of hypertension. If the fixed combination represents the dose titrated to an individual patient's needs, it may be more convenient than the separate components.
