Dyazide review by care giver of 47 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   general fluid retention
Dosage & duration:   half tablet twice daily taken daily for the period of 8 months
Other conditions:   food allergies, menopause
Other drugs taken:   dessicated porcine thyroid, estrodoil, progesterone
Reported Results
Benefits:   Completely controlled swelling.
Side effects:   There appeared to be no side effects.
Comments:   Her doctor originally had prescribed hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg per day for her fluid retention. This held it for 6 months, then it's effectiveness lessened. We didn't want to double the dose as we were concerned with potassium loss. Instead we used this combination formula, which adds in the potassium sparing triamterene. This medicine has held her swelling completely in check for more than 8 months. We have monitored her liver function and mineral levels, and haven't noticed any problems.
