Also known as:  Amiloride hydrochlorothiazide.

Description

Moduretic is a diuretic (water pill) and a combination of a potassium-sparing diuretic (amiloride) and a thiazide diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide). It works by making the kidneys eliminate sodium (salt) and water from the body, which helps to lower blood pressure. The amiloride component helps minimize potassium loss.

Brand name of Moduretic is Moduretic.

Dosage

Take Moduretic by mouth with food.

Moduretic may increase the amount of urine or cause you to urinate more often when you first start taking it. To keep this from disturbing your sleep, try to take your dose before 6 pm.

If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Moduretic suddenly.

Overdose

If you overdose Moduretic and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.

Storage

Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture, light and heat. Do not freeze. Keep container closed tightly. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of the reach of children.

Physicians' prescribing of anti-hypertensive drug combinations in a tertiary care setting in southwestern Nigeria is considerable. However, this practice does not appear to have positively impacted on blood pressure control among hypertensive patients nor being modulated by an Institutionalised standard guide.

In order to determine how both diuretics affect water metabolism, we here compare the effects of a rechallenge with either amiloride-hydrochlorothiazide fixed association (AmHTZ; amiloride chlorhydrate 5 mg+hydrochlorothiazide 50 mg; Moduretic) or furosemide (F; 40 mg; Lasix) on water excretion in a 79 year old woman who was previously admitted for severe symptomatic hyponatremia secondary to a 5 days course of AmHTZ for systolic hypertension. After correction of initial hydromineral disturbances, a standard oral water load (WL; 20 mL per kg body weight) was administered before, during and after AmHTZ or F challenges.

The pharmacological treatment, mainly based on diuretics, of isolated systolic hypertension (ISH) has recently been shown to reduce the risk of stroke and coronary heart disease in the elderly. The purpose of this study was to compare the antihypertensive effect and tolerability of different drug regimens in elderly subjects with ISH (systolic blood pressure--SBP-- > or = 160 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure--DBP-- < 90 mmHg). A multicentre, randomized, controlled open trial was planned in the general practice setting. Four widely used treatment schedules were tested: hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg plus amiloride 2.5 mg (H+Am), nifedipine slow release 20 mg (N), atenolol 50 mg (At) and atenolol 25 mg plus chlorthalidone 6.25 mg (At+C). After a baseline evaluation, 308 patients (76.3% female, mean age 75.3 +/- 7.1 years) were randomized and followed up for 6 months. After 3 months the drug dosage was doubled if the systolic blood pressure goal (SBP < 160 mmHg and SBP reduction of at least 20 mmHg) had not been reached. Ninety-four subjects (30.5%) presented contraindications to beta-blockers. At the 3rd- and 6th-month visits all treatment groups, except At, showed a significant reduction in SBP compared to the control group; DBP showed no significant reduction in any group at any time. At the end of the follow-up the percentage of hypertensives who had reached the BP goal was 14.6% in the control group, 52.9% in H+Am, 54.8% in N, 28.6% in At and 52.2% in At+C.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

moduretic tablet indication

Hyponatremia developed after AmHTZ but not after F challenge. A negative free water clearance (CH(2)O) was only observed during AmHTZ (-0.39 mL/min), while maximal CH(2)O during F was 3.17 mL/min. Based on the results obtained during WL, the calculated maximal daily electrolyte free water clearance ability was only 888 mL after AmHTZ but 10,166 mL after F therapy. Taking into account a measured mean daily water intake of 1830 mL, severe hyponatremia could be predicted to occur after a few days treatment with AmHTZ. In comparison, F appears to be safer, without risk of hyponatremia, during an equivalent period of time.

A randomized double-blind, crossover trial was carried out in twenty hypertensive patients to evaluate the hypotensive efficacy and safety of indapamide. Indapamide in doses of 2.5 mg per day in combination with other antihypertensive agents was as effective in reducing the blood pressure in hypertensive patients as one tablet of Moduretic (50 mg hydrochlorothiazide and 5 mg amiloride). Indapamide induced no changes in serum potassium or uric acid levels and there were no major side effects.

moduretic tablet dosage

The clinical pharmacology of the diuretic amyloride was studied in 60 patients suffering from circulatory insufficiency of various origin. Midamor and moduretic of the "Merck" firm (USA) were used in a dose of 1 to 4 tablets. The duration of treatment was from 3 days to 18 months. It was found that under the effect of amyloride natriuresis increases moderately in patients with circulatory insufficiency with no simultaneous increase in the loss of potassium with the urine. As the circulatory insufficiency becomes more severe, the natriuretic and potassium-saving effect of the drug diminishes. Amyloride potentiates the diuretic and natriuretic effect of furosemide and hydrochlorothiazide well without increasing kaliuresis. In patients in whom the disease is less severe, two-week treatment with amyloride leads to an authentic increase in the total metabolic potassium in the organism. The patients tolerate the drug well. It is recommended for wide clinical use.

Antihypertensive therapy is effective in reducing the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events. However, blood pressure (BP) control rate remains poor and the optimal combination therapy against hypertension is not established in China. The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of two antihypertensive regimens, amlodipine plus telmisartan and amlodipine plus amiloride/hydrochlorothiazide, in patients with essential hypertension and at least one cardiovascular risk factor.

A double-blind randomized study comparing the effects of 1 year's treatment with atenolol (A) 50 mg or hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg plus amiloride 5 mg (Moduretic (M)) on the lipid profile was performed in 100 hypertensive men (mean age 47, range 22-64 years). After 4 weeks' wash-out and 4 weeks on placebo therapy subjects were randomized to either A or M therapy and followed up every third month for 1 year. If the diastolic blood pressure (DBP) was greater than or equal to 95 mmHg at a subsequent visit, the doses were doubled (n = 17 for A and n = 12 for M) and, if DBP was still greater than or equal to 95 mmHg on double dose, nifedipine 20 mg b.d. was added (n = 15 for A and n = 27 for M, p less than 0.05). The lowering of heart rate (p = 0.0001) and DBP (p = 0.005) was more pronounced with A after 1 year. During that time no significant treatment differences were noted for total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol or apoproteins A and B. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol decreased from a mean of 1.19 (+/- 0.36) mmol l-1 to 1.13 (+/- 0.35) with A, and increased from 1.14 (+/- 0.30) mmol l-1 to 1.22 (+/- 0.28) with M, and this treatment difference was significant (p = 0.0002). The triglycerides increased from 2.0 (+/- 1.2) mmol l-1 to 2.3 (+/- 1.6) in the A group and did not change with M treatment (p = 0.02) for treatment difference). In view of similar effects on cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and apoproteins, the prognostic importance of the observed treatment differences on HDL cholesterol and triglycerides remains to be established.

Patients were diagnosed at a median age of 1.6 years (range, 0.16-6.33 years) and treated with a low osmotic diet, hydrochlorothiazide-amiloride and indomethacin, which decreased the diuresis from a median of 10.5 ml/kg/h to 4.4 ml/kg/h (p < 0.001). Three patients showed normal renal ultrasound before treatment until last control, while the remaining seven showed urinary tract dilation. In this second group, dilation was reduced with treatment in four patients and disappeared in the remaining three. Children without dilation or in whom the dilation disappeared were diagnosed and treated earlier than those with persistent dilation (median 1.66 versus 4.45 years, respectively). After a median of 10.4 (range, 2.3-20.3) years of follow-up, no patients showed urological complications.

Primary outcomes occurred in 200 (6.3%) patients in the nifedipine group and in 182 (5.8%) in the co-amilozide group (18.2 vs 16.5 events per 1000 patient-years; relative risk 1.10 [95% CI 0.91-1.34], p=0.35). Overall mean blood pressure fell from 173/99 mm Hg (SD 14/8) to 138/82 mm Hg (12/7). There was an 8% excess of withdrawals from the nifedipine group because of peripheral oedema (725 vs 518, p<0.0001), but serious adverse events were more frequent in the co-amilozide group (880 vs 796, p=0.02). Deaths were mainly non-vascular (nifedipine 176 vs co-amilozide 172; p=0.81). 80% of the primary events occurred in patients receiving randomised treatment (157 nifedipine, 147 co-amilozide, difference 0.33% [-0.7 to 1.4]).

To estimate the frequency of diuretic-related electrolyte disorders in the elderly, 561 consecutive admissions to three acute geriatric units were studied. For the 287 admissions to one unit, discharge/death diagnoses were also examined in relation to admission diuretic therapy. Sodium concentrations were significantly lower, and urea and creatinine significantly higher, in patients on diuretics, though the size of the differences was small. Comparing different preparations sodium concentrations were significantly lower on Moduretic than on Dyazide or Navidrex K and on frusemide when combined with a potassium-retaining diuretic rather than a potassium supplement. Potassium concentrations were significantly lower on Bendrofluazide alone compared to Navidrex K or Moduretic. Diuretics were positively associated with cardiac failure, ischaemic heart disease, airflow obstruction and obstructive large bowel disorders but negatively with Parkinson's disease. No significant association was found with falls, immobility or confusion. Major electrolyte disorders on diuretics appear to be unusual but important differences exist between preparations. Similarly major illness resulting from diuretic therapy is rare but minor morbidity may be more common.

Simultaneous administration of indomethacin and Moduretic (Merck Sharp & Dohme, USA, 5 mg of amiloride HCl, 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide) to a 78-yr-old patient resulted in severe hyperkalemia twice. When administered alone, neither drug significantly changed the normal serum potassium levels. Laboratory findings suggest an alteration of the internal balance of potassium as the main mechanism of this particular drug-induced hyperkalemia.

Therapy resistance is an enduring problem in clinical hypertension. Our aims were to estimate: (1) the contribution of a low-renin status in therapy resistance; (2) whether such status could give a clue to more successful treatment; and (3) the contribution by adrenal cortical adenomas and by primary aldosteronism.

moduretic drug

After a run-in period of 8 weeks on a regimen of hydrochlorothiazide (HCT, median dosage 75 mg/day), patients with essential hypertension were randomly allocated to continued hydrochlorothiazide therapy (Group I) or additional treatment with amiloride (Group II, median dosage 15 mg/day, or 5 mg per 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide) for the following 12 weeks. Thereafter all the patients were changed to treatment with a fixed combination tablet containing 5 mg amiloride and 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide (Moduretic), keeping the thiazide dosage unchanged for an additional 12 weeks. In Group I patients there was no change in plasma potassium, total body potassium content or the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system during the 12 weeks on HCT. When the treatment was changed to Moduretic, significant increases were found of 10% in plasma potassium and 3% in total body potassium content. No important stimulation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system was found. In Group II patients addition of an average of 15 mg amiloride to the hydrochlorothiazide treatment led to significant increases in plasma potassium and total body potassium content of approximately 15% and 4%, respectively. There was also a significant increase in the plasma concentrations of renin, angiotensin II and aldosterone. Reducing the average dose of amiloride to 7.5 mg/day by use of Moduretic did not lead to decrease in plasma potassium or total body potassium content. Plasma concentrations of renin, angiotensin II, and aldosterone were decreased, but the individual changes varied markedly and no significant overall change was found.

The efficacy and biochemical effects of two low-dose thiazide plus potassium-sparing diuretic preparations were compared in the treatment of elderly patients with stable, mild to moderate congestive heart failure. Sixty patients (mean age 80 years) were randomly allocated to treatment with 1 tablet daily of either 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide/2.5 mg amiloride or 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide/50 mg triamterene. The dose was increased to 2 tablets daily if necessary, after 2 weeks, for a further 6 weeks. Patients' response to treatment was assessed at 2, 4 and 8 weeks using a simple clinical scoring system for signs and symptoms of their condition, and routine biochemical analysis was carried out at baseline and the end of treatment. One patient was withdrawn from the study due to a rash which was probably related to hydrochlorothiazide/amiloride treatment. A further 11 patients were excluded from the analysis because of intercurrent illness or inadequate records. Analysis of the results from 48 patients showed that both treatments resulted in an improvement in clinical score and weight reduction, with more than three-quarters of the patients responding to treatment. No serious biochemical disturbances occurred; in particular, no new cases of hyponatraemia (serum sodium less than 130 mmol/l) developed. Both preparations, therefore, were effective and tolerated forms of treatment for mild to moderate congestive heart failure in the elderly and there were no significant differences between them.

A low-renin status characterized two-thirds of patients with treatment-resistant hypertension, who could be treated efficiently by aldosterone inhibition. Patients with an escape phenomenon (18%) could effectively be treated by increasing the aldosterone inhibitor. Low-renin hypertensives had high prevalence of adrenocortical adenomas and primary aldosteronism.

moduretic reviews

Old people are commonly receiving diuretics on admission to hospital. Diuretics are recognized as a risk factor for electrolyte disturbances; controversy exists about the relative risks of different combinations (in particular, co-amilozide [Moduretic]). We recorded the drug history and serum electrolytes in 1000 consecutive admissions to a geriatric hospital, and examined the relative prescribing rates of various diuretics in the community. Full results were obtained in 929 patients. A history of diuretic prescription was present in 353 (38%) of the patients; the mean serum sodium in this group (95% CI 136.0-137.1 mmol/l) was lower than in the 586 not prescribed diuretics (137.1-137.9 mmol/l). The difference was small but statistically significant (95% CI difference = 0.3-1.6 mmol/l; P less than 0.01). Hyponatraemia (serum sodium less than 130 mmol/l) was not significantly commoner in the 41 patients prescribed co-amilozide than in patients prescribed other diuretics. In general patients prescribed potassium-retaining diuretics had a lower serum sodium than the others. There was a significant positive correlation between the serum potassium and the log [serum urea] (r = 0.26, P less than 0.001) and a weak negative correlation existed between sodium and potassium (r = -0.14; P less than 0.001). There was an association between the prescription of potassium-retaining diuretics and a higher serum potassium; also an association between the prescription of a loop or thiazide diuretic and a lower serum potassium. These interactions were shown by multiple regression analysis to be independent and additive.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

To study the effect of a combination of amiloride, 5 mg, and hydrochlorothiazide, 50 mg (Moduretic), on plasma and skeletal muscle electrolytes in patients on long-term diuretic therapy (greater than 1 year) for arterial hypertension and/or congestive heart failure, 58 patients were recruited. Fifty-five patients completed the study, 27 controls and 28 in the treatment group. The Moduretic group demonstrated a significant increase in skeletal muscle potassium and magnesium values and a significant decrease in systolic blood pressure after 6 months on therapy. There was no significant change in these parameters in the control group. It is concluded that this combination of amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide is capable of preserving the internal and external balance of potassium and magnesium on a long-term basis in the patient categories studied.

The anti-hypertensive effects of atenolol (Tenormin) 50 mg, a potassium-sparing diuretic (half-strength Moduretic) comprising hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg plus 2.5 mg amiloride hydrochloride, and the 'free' combination of atenolol and diuretic were compared in elderly hypertensive patients aged 60-79 years. After a four-week run-in period on placebo, patients were randomly assigned, in a double-blind manner, to atenolol or diuretic treatment, each for four weeks. Thereafter patients were given the 'free' combination for a further four weeks and this treatment was continued for six months. Blood pressure and heart rate were measured after the patient had rested for five minutes supine and after two minutes standing. These blood pressure measurements were made at least 24 hours after the preceding dose using a Random Zero sphygmomanometer. Results from 26 of the 27 patients entered into the study showed an advantage for combination therapy combined with either atenolol or diuretic treatment alone. No significant difference was found between treatments in the frequency of supraventricular and ventricular ectopic beats occurring in six patients who underwent 24-hour ambulatory ECG monitoring. However, ectopic activity was reduced in some patients during beta-blocker treatment. Few adverse effects occurred with any treatment. Three patients withdrew during the placebo period and three withdrew while taking active treatment. This study has shown that the combination of atenolol, hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride hydrochloride is an effective, safe, well-tolerated antihypertensive drug regimen when used once daily in elderly hypertensive patients.

A new beta-adrenoreceptor blocking drug (timolol) was used in two clinical studies. In the first double blind study administration of hydrochlorothiazide and timolol reduced the mean (formula: see text) blood pressure by 23 mm Hg, compared with a fall of nine mm Hg with administration of hydrochlorothiazide and a placebo. Plasma potassium (K+) levels fell with the administration of hydrochlorothiazide alone, but rose back to control values when patients were given timolol. In the second study (patient blind), Moduretic (hydrochlorothiazide, 50 mg and amiloride, 5 mg) and timolol were given once daily. The mean blood pressure fell by 20 +/- 2 mm Hg allowing hypertension to be controlled by this once-daily regimen; the control persisted throughout the day. Plasma potassium (K+) levels fell slightly after treatment with Moduretic, but the fall was not as great as with hydrochlorothiazide. Of the 65 patients who entered these studies, 35 had not been previously treated and had diastolic blood pressure between 105 mm Hg and 130 mm Hg. In 18 patients the diastolic blood pressure was reduced below 95 mm Hg after treatment with a diuretic alone, in 15 patients treatment with a diuretic and timolol (5 mg to 20 mg) reduced the diastolic blood pressure below 95 mm Hg. In two patients, the diastolic blood pressure was between 95 mm Hg and 100 mm Hg. The response achieved with a relatively simple therapeutic regimen that can be administered once daily suggests that the therapy of most hypertensive patients could be supervised by paramedical personnel.

The purpose of this study was to identify the frequency of cardiac dysrhythmias in two similar groups of hypertensive middle-aged males (age 45-66). They had previously been randomized either to a diuretic treatment (n = 42), or a beta-blocking agent (n = 41). A 24-hour ambulatory Holter monitoring, and serum potassium, was obtained in all patients, serum magnesium was measured in 35 patients. The mean number of ventricular premature beats (VPBs) and the frequency of complex arrhythmias (19 vs. 5) was significantly higher in the diuretic group (p less than 0.01). The serum potassium was significantly lower (p less than 0.001) in the diuretic group, and there was a significant (p less than 0.005) inverse correlation between the number of VPBs and the serum potassium in all treated patients. The patients with complex arrhythmias were older (p less than 0.01) than the remainder of the patients. No correlation between serum magnesium and VPBs or complex arrhythmias was found. This study demonstrates increased frequency of VPBs in older hypertensive males, treated with diuretics, and that hypokalaemia predisposes to increased cardiac arrhythmias. We conclude that in older mildly hypertensive men hypokalaemia should be avoided.

An elderly woman who had been taking a fixed-dose combination of a thiazide and potassium-sparing diuretic for eight days, became severely hyponatraemic following total hip replacement. Her hyponatraemia resolved with fluid restriction, intravenous normal saline, and withdrawal of the drug. Hyponatraemia is a well-described side-effect of diuretic therapy; however, we are not aware of any previous reports of this condition developing acutely in the postoperative state. We attribute this to the natriuretic nature of the drug, compounded by the postoperative, anti-diuretic surge which itself may have been exacerbated by the drug. We thus advise caution in the use of this preparation in the elderly patient about to undergo major surgery.

In a randomized double-blind study to compare the effect of atenolol vs. hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride (Moduretic) on left ventricular dimensions and systolic function, 100 hypertensive men were followed up during 1 buy moduretic online year of treatment, 50 subjects being randomized to each drug. Echocardiography was performed at baseline, and after 3 and 12 months of treatment. A significant reduction in left ventricular mass with atenolol was paralleled by a decrease in left ventricular wall thickness and an increase in stroke volume. A similar reduction of left ventricular mass with Moduretic without a change in relative wall thickness and a decrease in stroke volume was observed. Cardiac output decreased in both groups.

Of 6321 randomized patients, 1498 (23.7%) had ISH with buy moduretic online a baseline mean BP of 173/88 mmHg in both treatment groups. Mean BP fell by 29/10 mmHg in the nifedipine and 30/10 mmHg in the diuretic group to a mean BP of 144/78 mmHg and 143/79 mmHg, respectively, at endpoint. The percentage of primary outcomes in patients with ISH was not significantly different between the two treatment groups (nifedipine GITS 6.0%, co-amilozide 6.6%). The number of ISH patients with composite secondary outcomes was 90 (12.2%) in the nifedipine GITS group and 110 (14.5%) in the co-amilozide group (not significant). The incidence rates of primary and secondary outcomes were similar in patients without ISH.

A 24-hour ambulatory buy moduretic online Holter monitoring, and serum potassium, was obtained in all patients, serum magnesium was measured in 35 patients. The mean number of ventricular premature beats (VPBs) and the frequency of complex arrhythmias (19 vs. 5) was significantly higher in the diuretic group (p less than 0.01). The serum potassium was significantly lower (p less than 0.001) in the diuretic group, and there was a significant (p less than 0.005) inverse correlation between the number of VPBs and the serum potassium in all treated patients. The patients with complex arrhythmias were older (p less than 0.01) than the remainder of the patients. No correlation between serum magnesium and VPBs or complex arrhythmias was found. This study demonstrates increased frequency of VPBs in older hypertensive males, treated with diuretics, and that hypokalaemia predisposes to increased cardiac arrhythmias. We conclude that in older mildly hypertensive men hypokalaemia should be avoided.

In 1984 the General Practitioner Hypertension Study Group undertook a rescreening of their patient population, looking for patients who still had untreated mild to moderate essential hypertension. Suitable patients were entered into a clinical trial comparing the safety and efficacy of nicardipine (a calcium antagonist) and amiloride + hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) (moduretic). The study included one year of long-term follow-up. Both drugs significantly lowered BP in both the short and long term. Numbers and percentages of patients from each group reporting adverse experiences were similar in the short term, but in the long term the frequency of adverse event reporting was much lower with nicardipine treatment than with amiloride + HCTZ treatment (2/10 versus 9/17). Treatment with amiloride + HCTZ led to elevations in serum levels of cholesterol, uric acid and urea, which were maintained at one year, whilst buy moduretic online no abnormalities in blood biochemistry were seen in patients treated with nicardipine. In conclusion we have found that nicardipine compares very favourably with amiloride + HCTZ in the treatment of mild to moderate hypertensive patients.

The clinical pharmacology of the diuretic amyloride was studied in 60 patients suffering from circulatory insufficiency of various origin. Midamor and moduretic of the "Merck" firm (USA) were used in a dose of 1 to 4 tablets. The duration of treatment was from 3 days to 18 months. It was found that under the effect of amyloride natriuresis increases moderately in patients with circulatory insufficiency with no simultaneous increase in the loss of potassium with the urine. As the circulatory insufficiency becomes more severe, the natriuretic and potassium-saving effect of the drug diminishes. Amyloride potentiates the diuretic and natriuretic effect of furosemide and hydrochlorothiazide well without increasing kaliuresis. In patients in whom the disease is less severe, two-week treatment with amyloride leads to an authentic increase in the total metabolic potassium in the organism. The patients tolerate the drug well. It is buy moduretic online recommended for wide clinical use.

We did a prospective, randomised, double-blind trial in Europe and Israel in 6321 patients aged 55-80 years with hypertension (blood pressure > or = 150/95 mm Hg, or > or = 160 mm Hg systolic). Patients had at least buy moduretic online one additional cardiovascular risk factor. We randomly assigned patients nifedipine 30 mg in a long-acting gastrointestinal-transport-system (GITS) formulation (n=3157), or co-amilozide (hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg [corrected] plus amiloride 2.5 mg; n=3164). Dose titration was by dose doubling, and addition of atenolol 25-50 mg or enalapril 5-10 mg. The primary outcome was cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, heart failure, or stroke. Analysis was done by intention to treat.

Rapid, precise, accurate and specific ratio spectra derivative spectrophotometry and high-performance liquid chromatographic procedures were described for the simultaneous determination of hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride hydrochloride in combined pharmaceutical dosage forms. For the first method, ratio spectra derivative spectrophotometry, the signals were measured at 285.7 nm for hydrochlorothiazide and at 302.5 nm for amiloride hydrochloride in the mixture, in the first derivative of the ratio spectra. The second method is based on high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) on LiChrosorb RP-C18 column (5 microm, 20 cm x 4.6 mm) using 0.025 M orthophosphoric acid (adjusted to pH buy moduretic online 3.0 with triethylamine (TEA)), acetonitrile (84:16 v/v) as a mobile phase at a flow rate of 1.2 ml/min(-1). Detection was carried out using a UV detector at 278.0 nm. Commercial sugar-coated and laboratory-prepared mixtures containing both drugs in different proportions were assayed using the developed methods.

A patient who developed significant metabolic acidosis and severe hyperkalaemia while taking Moduretic (amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide) is reported. During the period of hyperkalaemia (maximum potassium 7-6 mmol/l) the patient's whole body potassium content was normal. His acid-base balance and serum potassium returned to normal some 10 days after stopping the drug. The possible mechanism of acidosis and hyperkalaemia in Cymbalta Drug Company this patient is discussed.

In 75 patients with circulatory insufficiency of various degree the diuretic effect of moduretic was studied. In 25 of them besides the potassium and sodium metabolism and in 33 others, with a background of chronic ischemic disease of the heart and hypertensive disease, the state of the hemocoagulation system was investigated in the moduretic medication. In 24 patients with hypertensive disease of the I--IIA stage subject to study was the effect of moduretic on the arterial pressure, with this drug administered by Luvox 450 Mg mouth in doses of 3 to 1/2 tablet a day. The drug proved to have a marked duretic effect in patients with different degree of circulatory insufficiency. It increases sodium excretion with urine and retains potassium in the organism, without causing hyperkaliemia. In patients with circulatory insufficiency of the I degree the drug can provoke thrombogenesis and in cases of the IIA, IIB and III degree may be considered a drug of choice. Moduretic brings down the systolic and diastolic pressure in patients with hypertensive disease of the I and II stages.

In a multicenter open-label clinical trial, eligible patients were randomized to receive treatment with amlodipine 2.5-5 mg plus amiloride/hydrochlorothiazide 1.25-2.5 mg/12.5-25 mg (Group A) or amlodipine 2.5-5 mg plus telmisartan 40-80 mg (Group T). If a target BP was not reached, other antihypertensive agents would be added. The target BP was <130/80 mmHg for patients with diabetes mellitus or chronic kidney disease and <140/90 mmHg for others. Efficacy variables were changes from baseline in systolic BP and diastolic BP Naprosyn Generic Name at the endpoint of 96 weeks. Safety evaluations included monitoring of any adverse events (AEs).

A comparative study was made of Mobic Drug Class the effects of a new therapeutic agent consisting of 50 mg captopril and 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide (Capozide) with an already existing agent Moduretic (50 mg hydrochlorothiazide and 5 mg amiloride). In the Capozide group (32 patients), 20 achieved normal blood pressure, 8 responded but were not brought under control, and 3 were non-responders. In the Moduretic group (31 patients), 17 achieved normal blood pressure, 10 were partially controlled and 4 were non-responders. Moduretic appeared to be most effective in patients previously untreated or who had been taking only one drug, while Capozide controlled patients who had been taking 1 or 2 antihypertensive drugs which had been either ineffective or poorly tolerated. The long-acting effect of a single dose of Capozide was demonstrated by blood pressure measurements taken at least 10 hours later. Both drugs were generally well tolerated and no significant changes were observed in the laboratory measurements. The combination of an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor with a diuretic proved more effective than single agents in lowering raised blood pressure. We therefore conclude that Capozide is an effective alternative to traditional medication in the treatment of moderate hypertension.

The anti-hypertensive effects of atenolol (Tenormin) 50 mg, a potassium-sparing diuretic (half-strength Moduretic) comprising hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg plus 2.5 mg amiloride hydrochloride, and the 'free' combination of atenolol and diuretic were compared in elderly hypertensive patients aged 60-79 years. After a four-week run-in period on placebo, patients were randomly assigned, in a double-blind manner, to atenolol or diuretic Naprosyn Otc Dose treatment, each for four weeks. Thereafter patients were given the 'free' combination for a further four weeks and this treatment was continued for six months. Blood pressure and heart rate were measured after the patient had rested for five minutes supine and after two minutes standing. These blood pressure measurements were made at least 24 hours after the preceding dose using a Random Zero sphygmomanometer. Results from 26 of the 27 patients entered into the study showed an advantage for combination therapy combined with either atenolol or diuretic treatment alone. No significant difference was found between treatments in the frequency of supraventricular and ventricular ectopic beats occurring in six patients who underwent 24-hour ambulatory ECG monitoring. However, ectopic activity was reduced in some patients during beta-blocker treatment. Few adverse effects occurred with any treatment. Three patients withdrew during the placebo period and three withdrew while taking active treatment. This study has shown that the combination of atenolol, hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride hydrochloride is an effective, safe, well-tolerated antihypertensive drug regimen when used once daily in elderly hypertensive patients.

An open parallel study was carried out in general practice on 70 patients with uncomplicated mild to moderate hypertension to compare the hypotensive efficacy of hydrochlorothiazide/amiloride with that of cyclopenthiazide/potassium. After a 2-week baseline period on placebo, patients were allocated at random to receive treatment with one or other of the diuretics Bactrim Cystitis Dosage starting with 1 tablet per day and increasing up to a maximum of 4 tablets per day or until their supine diastolic blood pressure was 90 mmHg or less. They were then continued at their optimum dose for a further 4 weeks. Analysis of the results from 62 patients showed that the hydrochlorothiazide/amiloride preparation produced both a greater decrease and better control of blood pressure in a greater percentage of patients that did the comparison diuretic. In addition, the beneficial effects were attained with fewer tablets, of importance for patient compliance.

This study, ancillary to the International Nifedipine GITS Study: Intervention as a Goal in Hypertension Treatment (INSIGHT), involved nifedipine 30 mg or co-amilozide (hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg and amiloride 2.5 mg) with optional subsequent titration. Among 439 randomized hypertensive patients, 324 had >/=1 year of follow-up (intent-to-treat group), and 242 completed follow-up (until-end-of-study group). Ultrasonography was performed at baseline, 4 months later, and then every year. Central computerized reading provided far-wall IMT, diameter, and cross-sectional area IMT (CSA-IMT). The primary outcome was IMT progression rate (slope of IMT-time regression). Secondary outcomes were changes from baseline (Delta) in IMT, diameter, and CSA-IMT. In the until-end-of-study population, between-treatment differences existed in IMT progression rate (P=0.002), Delta IMT (P=0.001), and Delta CSA-IMT (P=0.006), because IMT progressed on co-amilozide but not on nifedipine. In the intent-to-treat population, treatment differences existed in Delta IMT (P=0.004) and Delta CSA-IMT (P=0.04) but not in IMT progression rate (P=0.09). Patients with >/=2, 3, or 4 years of follow-up showed treatment differences in IMT progression rate (P=0.04, 0.004, 0.007, respectively), Delta IMT (P=0.005, 0.001, 0.005), and Delta CSA-IMT (P=0.025, 0.013, 0.015). Diameter decreased more on co-amilozide than on nifedipine in the intent Viagra Generic Review -to-treat population (P<0.05), whereas blood pressure decreased similarly on both treatments.

In 90 treatment-resistant hypertensive, 67% had plasma renin activity (PRA) below 0.5 nmol/l per hour. Of the 60 low-renin patients, 38 were studied on a fixed combination of amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide. Three weeks' treatment reduced blood pressure by 31/15 mmHg compared to placebo (P < or = 0.0001). Serum aldosterone and plasma renin activity increased substantially during Zithromax 3 Tablets active treatment. Through the subsequent 6-12 months of open treatment, seven patients (18%) showing an escape phenomenon had their high blood pressure effectively treated by extra amiloride. Of the 60 low-renin patients, eight had adrenal adenoma.

No adverse effect upon cognitive function has been detected during the first 9 months of treatment by a thiazide diuretic (Moduretic; Merck Sharp & Dohme, Hoddesdon, UK) or a beta-blocking agent (atenolol) of moderately elevated blood pressure in a cohort of 2630 men and women aged between 65 and 74 years. Furthermore, no association was discovered between levels of systolic or diastolic blood pressure at outset and responses to standard tests of cognitive function. This study was carried out in general practices as part of the current Medical Research Council Treatment Trial of Mild Hypertension in the Elderly.

73% (138) of the patients were on anti-hypertensive drug combinations, comprising 71.7% (99), 24.4% (34) and 3.6% (5) on combinations of two, three and four drugs respectively. Overall, Thiazide diuretic consisting mainly of fixed dose combination of Amiloride and Hydorchlorothiazide (Moduretic(r)) was the most frequently prescribed drug class in anti-hypertensive combination therapy (83.3%). ACE inhibitor, Lisinopril (Zestril(r)), was prescribed in combination with Moduretic(r), Calcium channel blocker and beta-blocker in 6.5%, 8.5% and 0.7% respectively. Blood pressure control was adequate in only 29% (40) of patients, though adherence with therapy was documented as adequate in 77.5% (107). Type-2 diabetes mellitus (32.7%) and osteoarthritis (21.8%) were the most frequent co-morbidities. Potentially harmful drug-drug interactions in the study sample were identified in 17.5% (46) of patients. Physician documentation of adverse drug reactions among patients was done in only 10.9% of cases. There appear to be no institutionalised system in place to monitor, detect and document adverse drug reactions among patients on anti-hypertensive drug therapy.

To investigate the impact of treatment on cardiovascular mortality and morbidity, we assessed outcomes in patients with hypertension and diabetes who received co-amilozide or nifedipine in the International Nifedipine GITS Study: Intervention as a Goal in Hypertension. Participants had to be 55 to 80 years of age, with hypertension (> or =150/95 or > or =160 mm Hg) and at least one additional cardiovascular risk factor. Patients received 30 mg nifedipine once daily or co-amilozide (25 mg hydrochlorothiazide and 2.5 mg amiloride) daily. Doses were doubled if target blood pressures (<140/90 mm Hg) were not achieved. Primary (composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, heart failure, and stroke) and secondary outcomes (composite of primary outcomes, including all-cause mortality and death from vascular and nonvascular causes) were assessed by means of intent-to-treat analyses. There was no significant difference in the incidence of primary outcomes between nifedipine-treated and co-amilozide-treated patients with diabetes at baseline (n=1302) (8.3% versus 8.4%; relative risk, 0.99, 95% CI, 0.69 to 1.42; P=1.00). A significant benefit for nifedipine-treated patients was seen for the composite secondary outcome (14.2% versus 18.7%; relative risk, 0.76, 95% CI, 0.59 to 0.97; P=0.03). Among patients without diabetes at baseline (n=5019), there was a significant difference in the incidence of new diabetes (nifedipine 4.3% versus co-amilozide 5.6%, P=0.023). Nifedipine GITS once daily is as effective as diuretic therapy in reducing cardiovascular complications in hypertensive diabetics. Nifedipine-treated patients were also less likely to have diabetes or have secondary events (a composite of all-cause mortality, death from a vascular cause, and death from a nonvascular cause) than co-amilozide recipients. Our results suggest that nifedipine could be considered as first-line therapy for hypertensive diabetics.

The efficacy and biochemical effects of two low-dose thiazide plus potassium-sparing diuretic preparations were compared in the treatment of elderly patients with stable, mild to moderate congestive heart failure. Sixty patients (mean age 80 years) were randomly allocated to treatment with 1 tablet daily of either 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide/2.5 mg amiloride or 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide/50 mg triamterene. The dose was increased to 2 tablets daily if necessary, after 2 weeks, for a further 6 weeks. Patients' response to treatment was assessed at 2, 4 and 8 weeks using a simple clinical scoring system for signs and symptoms of their condition, and routine biochemical analysis was carried out at baseline and the end of treatment. One patient was withdrawn from the study due to a rash which was probably related to hydrochlorothiazide/amiloride treatment. A further 11 patients were excluded from the analysis because of intercurrent illness or inadequate records. Analysis of the results from 48 patients showed that both treatments resulted in an improvement in clinical score and weight reduction, with more than three-quarters of the patients responding to treatment. No serious biochemical disturbances occurred; in particular, no new cases of hyponatraemia (serum sodium less than 130 mmol/l) developed. Both preparations, therefore, were effective and tolerated forms of treatment for mild to moderate congestive heart failure in the elderly and there were no significant differences between them.

moduretic 5mg tablet 2017-06-11

A double-blind study was carried out in 24 hypertensive patients with thiazide-induced hypokalaemia (serum potassium less than 3.2 mmol/l) to compare the effects of treatment with an amiloride/hydrochlorothiazide combination or hydrochlorothiazide alone. The study was divided into three phases: (i) potassium repletion (Weeks 0 to 4) with oral potassium chloride (40 mmol/day), (ii) stabilization (Weeks 4 to 6) of normokalaemia, and (iii) active drug treatment (Weeks 6 to 14), patients being allocated at random to receive one or other of the two treatments. Dosage was 2 tablets per day of the 5 mg amiloride plus 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide combination or of 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide alone. The results showed that blood pressure control was comparable in both treatment groups but hydrochlorothiazide alone caused a statistically significant reduction in serum potassium levels compared to the drug combination. Apart from 1 patient who developed hypokalaemia on hydrochlorothiazide alone, no other side-effects of treatment were reported.

After a run-in period of 8 weeks on a regimen of hydrochlorothiazide (HCT, median dosage 75 mg/day), patients with essential hypertension were randomly allocated to continued hydrochlorothiazide therapy (Group I) or additional treatment with amiloride (Group II, median dosage 15 mg/day, or 5 mg per 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide) for the following 12 weeks. Thereafter all the patients were changed to treatment with a fixed combination tablet containing 5 mg amiloride and 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide (Moduretic), keeping the thiazide dosage unchanged for an additional 12 weeks. In Group I patients there was no change in plasma potassium, total body potassium content or the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system during the 12 weeks on HCT. When the treatment was changed to Moduretic, significant increases were found of 10% in plasma potassium and 3% in total body potassium content. No important stimulation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system was found. In Group II patients addition of an average of 15 mg amiloride to the hydrochlorothiazide treatment led to significant increases in plasma potassium and total body potassium content of approximately 15% and 4%, respectively. There was also a significant increase in the plasma concentrations of renin, angiotensin II and aldosterone. Reducing the average dose of amiloride to 7.5 mg/day by use of Moduretic did not lead to decrease in plasma potassium or total body potassium content. Plasma concentrations of renin, angiotensin II, and aldosterone were decreased, but the individual changes varied markedly and no significant overall change was found.

moduretic drug information 2015-06-27

Primary outcomes occurred in 200 (6.3%) patients in the nifedipine group and in 182 (5.8%) in the co-amilozide group (18.2 vs 16.5 events per 1000 patient-years; relative risk 1.10 [95% CI 0.91-1.34], p=0.35). Overall mean blood pressure fell from 173/99 mm Hg (SD 14/8) to 138/82 mm Hg (12/7). There was an 8% excess of withdrawals from the nifedipine group because of peripheral oedema (725 vs 518, p<0.0001), but serious adverse events were more frequent in the co-amilozide group (880 vs 796, p=0.02). Deaths were mainly non-vascular (nifedipine 176 vs co-amilozide 172; p=0.81). 80% of the primary events occurred in patients receiving randomised treatment (157 nifedipine, 147 co-amilozide, difference 0.33% [-0.7 to 1.4]).
