Information

Amilzide (Amiloride/Hydrochlorothiazide) is used in adults for swelling of the hands, ankles or feet in patients with hepatic cirrhosis (a liver disease) and patients with swelling of the hands, ankles or feet caused by heart problems or patients with high blood pressure who have low levels of potassium in their blood or who need to maintain normal levels of potassium. Amilzide contains a combination of 2 drugs, Amiloride hydrochloride and Hydrochlorothiazide. Amiloride hydrochloride helps the body lose excess salt but keep a normal amount of potassium in the blood. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic or “water pill” that increases urination. This lowers blood pressure. This medicine does not cure high blood pressure. It helps to control it. Therefore, it is important to continue taking Amilzide regularly even if you feel fine. Take Amilzide exactly as prescribed. It is recommended to take your dose at about the same time every day. Amilzide can be taken with or without food. If Amilzide causes upset stomach, take it with food or milk.
