Triamterene - Dosage and How to Use

How should Triamterene be used?

  • ​Do not stop taking your medication without first checking with your healthcare professional.
  • If you are taking one dose a day, take it in the morning. If you are taking the medication two times a day, take the second dose before 4pm so that you do not need to wake up often at night to pass urine.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

​If you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, take only the usual dose. Do not double your dose or use extra medication to make up for the missed dose.
