I believe this medication is causing me nausea and severe diarrhea. It usually happens in the evenings and i cant tell you its not a coincidence and i have some sort of flu but this all started the first day i took it.

This drug is satisfactory, although it does not seem to be as effective as either Hydrodiuril or Dyrenium, both of which I have used previously. Dyrenium is very, very expensive, so this Amiloride is a decent substitute. My favorite is still Hydrodiuril (hydrochlorothiazide). I'm on a very low dose of Amiloride, and I take it for water retention, but it should also lower my BP, which it does not seem to have done -- would probably need a higher dose to lower BP, and I'm not into high doses of any drug. I plan to stay on Amiloride. I've had no side effects from Amiloride, but then I've never had any side effects with any drug I've taken.
