Blood Pressure Home > Maxzide Side Effects

While most people have no problems when taking Maxzide, side effects are possible. A few commonly reported side effects include nausea, loss of appetite, constipation, and a dry mouth. Fortunately, these side effects are usually minor and easily treated. However, some side effects of Maxzide -- such as fainting spells, vomiting, and jaundice -- need to be reported to a healthcare provider right away.

An Overview of Maxzide Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Maxzide® (triamterene-HCTZ); however, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, possible side effects with Maxzide. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Maxzide side effects with you.)

Reported Maxzide Side Effects

Maxzide has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occur in a group of people taking the drug are documented and are then compared to side effects that occur in another group of people not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
Based on these studies, some of the possible Maxzide side effects include:
  • Changes in vision or eye pain
