Maxzide® (triamterene-HCTZ) is commonly prescribed to treat fluid retention (edema) and high blood pressure (hypertension). Since it is a diuretic, it causes more salt and water to be removed from the blood. This decreases blood volume -- which, in turn, typically causes a drop in blood pressure. The medication comes in tablet form, and is generally taken once a day.
Side effects of Maxzide can include dizziness, fatigue, and diarrhea. A few of he factors that can affect the dose of Maxzide that your healthcare provider recommends include other medical conditions you may have, other medications you may be currently taking, and how you respond to Maxzide.
