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.

The efficacy of hydrochlorothiazide, timolol and enalapril in Ethiopians with essential hypertension. [1992.07]
A double-blind trial of hydrochlorothiazide, timolol and enalapril was carried out in Ethiopians with essential hypertension at the Tikur Anbessa Hospital, Addis Abeba, between 1987 and 1990. Patients with a supine diastolic blood pleasure of 95-120 mmHg after a washout period of 2 weeks were randomized to receive hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg daily, timolol 10 mg daily or enalapril 10 mg daily...

Combined action of enalapril or timolol with hydrochlorothiazide plus amiloride in hypertension. [1987]
59 mild to moderate hypertensives were treated for four weeks with 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide plus 5 mg of amiloride, then concomitantly with these diuretics with either enalapril (10-20 mg) or timolol (10-20 mg) in two parallel treatment groups for an additional 12 weeks in an open study...
