I had serious side effects after just two weeks on this drug. Panic attacks, felt I was going to die for no reason, dizzy. It took 10 days for those side effects to wear off after stopping Triamterene.

This medication is working for me. For the first month I experienced nausea daily and still do on occasion. My blood pressure is normal, but have on occasion been low...whether I take this medication during the day or at night I'm constantly running to the bathroom(not always convient for meetings at work)...overall I'm pleased.

As my Doctor said, "Sometimes the medication that has been around for years is still around for a reason." This medication works for myself and both of my parents.
