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.

moduretic tablet dosage

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.

A 47 year old Nigerian male presented with headache, occasional blurring of vision and dyspnoea on mild exertion of 2/12 duration. He had been troubled by painful osteoarthritis of the knees for 2 years for which he was taking NSAIDs. He was found to be severely hypertensive, BP 210/130mmHg and had bilateral knee crepitus. BP was resistant to control on Nifedipine R and Moduretic. Serum urea, creatinine, uric acid were normal but there was hyperacalcaemia and hyperchloraemia. Haematological indices, urinalysis, microscopy and culture of urine were normal. Parathyroid hormone level was raised. A parathyroid MIBI scan study showed an extensive area of significance towards the inferior pole of the right lobe of thyroid medially with a second area of very low significance medial to the left pole. These findings indicated the presence of a right inferior parathyroid adenoma. He had parathyroid surgery and a large adenoma in the right inferior gland and a smaller left inferior gland were removed and confirmed histologically. Corrected calcium and parathyroid hormone levels dropped to normal, and the BP was easily controlled with Lisinopril 5mg daily subsequently. He is not currently on antihypertensive medication two years post surgery.

A national multicenter study (34 centers) compared six treatments in 328 patients with cirrhotic ascites. Excluded were patients with g.i. bleeding within the last six months, chronic encephalopathy, cancer, tuberculosis or the following complications persisting after three weeks: acute encephalopythy, fever greater than 38 degrees C, infected ascites or biochemical abnormalities: blood urea greater than 8 mmol/l, natremia less than 130 mmol/l, kaliemia less than 2.5 or greater than 5.5 mmol/l, WBC greater than 12000 mm3, total bilirubin greater than 85.5 mumol/l. In each center patients were randomized into two treatment groups, each center using 2 of 6 proposed treatments: (1) Spironolactone and 500 mg Na p.d (77 patients), (2) Spironolactone + furosemide or Moduretic (amiloride + hydrochlorothiazide) and 500 mg Na p.d (80 patients), (3) Spironolactone + Furosemide or Moduretic and unrestricted sodium diet (86 patients), (4) Concentrated ascites reinfusion and 500 mg Na p.d. (36 patients), (5) Unmodified ascites reinfusion and 500 mg Na p.d. (23 patients), (6) Slow ascites drainage and 500 mg Na p.d. (31 patients). Statistical analysis methods were X2, variance analysis and Spotvoll-Stoline and Dunn-Sidak tests. Before treatment, there was no significant difference between the 6 groups.

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.

Common carotid artery intima-media thickness (IMT) progression was compared between 4 years of treatment with nifedipine and diuretic.

moduretic 5mg tablet

A method has been developed for the separation of hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride by high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method on a C18 column with detection at 280 nm. The optimal conditions of separation were determined with the aid of 'window diagram' technique of Laub and Purnell. The effect of simultaneously varying the pH, proportion aqueous acetic acid and methanol in the mobile phase were studied to optimize the separation. A response surface diagram was used to optimize the experimental conditions for the separation. The mobile phase composition that provides an acceptable resolution hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride in a short elution time is water:methanol (60:40) and pH 3.2 (pH adjusted to 3.2 with CH3COOH). A method is applied for the quantitative analysis of Moduretic tablets (Merck Sharp & Dokme International). The powdered tablets are extracted with methanol, containing caffeine as the internal standard, and assayed by comparison of peak areas after liquid chromatography.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

In a controlled double-blind crossover study followed by an open longterm continuation period, the antihypertensive effect of timolol (Blocadren), a new beta-receptor antagonist, was investigated in 24 ambulatory patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension who were concomitantly receiving Moduretic as baseline diuretic therapy. The addition of timolol to one tablet daily Moduretic resulted in a clinically and statistically significant further reduction of supine and upright systolic and diastolic blood pressures. The average total daily dosage schedule for timolol ranged between 15 and 20 mg, with the same blood pressure lowering effect whether the divided dose was given twice or three times. Significant sinus bradycardia was consistently observed but well tolerated, with only one patient requiring dose reduction. After 48 weeks of treatment (comprising 46 weeks Moduretic and 36 weeks timolol) 20 of 22 patients were normotensive (supine diastolic blood pressure below 90 mm Hg) while in two the hypotensive response proved inadequate. One patient was dropped from the study after 3 days of timolol treatment because of acute bronchial asthma. When specifically questioned, one-third of the patients admitted experiencing cold extremities. One patient exhibited Raynaud's syndrome which was treated symptomatically while continuing in the study. In terms of electrolyte balance, the fixed combination of hydrochlorothiazide and the antikaluretic amiloride (Moduretic) as baseline therapy essentially proved adequate. On occasion, however, two subject revealed hypokalemia requiring short-term oral potassium supplement. During the initial 10 to 16 weeks a steady decline in serum potassium was observed but this stabilized itself thereafter. The concomitant administration of Moduretic and timolol (Blocadren) was shown to be an effective therapeutic regimen in patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension. This combination is particularly suitable for patient compliance in longterm therapy, as timolol can be given twice daily.

moduretic 40 mg

There were significant reductions in SBP at some periods of the intervention in the exercise group (p=0.000 to 0.002) and control group (p=0.001 to 0.002), and significant difference in DBP at some periods of the intervention in exercise group (p=0.000 to 0.003) and control group (p=0.000 to 0.001). SBP (p=0.066) and DBP (p=0.100) did not differ between the two groups post-12-week intervention. The BP control rates were similar between the exercises (56.7%) and control (35.5%) groups (p=0.075). Similarly, between-group difference in the number of drugs was not significant (p=0.511).

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.

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.

moduretic maximum dose

Thiazide diuretics frequently cause a decrease in serum potassium levels. In this study, 34 percent of patients taking hydrochlorothiazide had serum potassium levels below 3.5 meq/liter. The response of the serum potassium level was studied after treatment in 56 patients was switched from 50 mg of hydrochlorothiazide daily to either two capsules of hydrochlorothiazide/triampterene (Dyazide), or one tablet of hydrochlorothiazide/amiloride (Moduretic) daily, over nine to 15 months. The 24 patients whose treatment was changed to Dyazide had a rise in serum potassium levels from a mean of 3.56 meq/liter to 4.17 meq/liter in two to three weeks. The 32 patients whose treatment was changed to Moduretic had a rise in serum potassium levels from a mean of 3.76 meq/liter to 4.14 meq/liter in two to three weeks. The resultant rise in potassium levels was stable throughout the follow-up period in both groups. Patient acceptance of this change was excellent.

Among 54 patients attending a hospital hypertension clinic and receiving the fixed-combination diuretic Moduretic (hydrochlorothiazide 50 mg, amiloride 5 mg), there was a 44.4% incidence of hypokalaemia. The mean drop in plasma potassium level was 0.69 mmol/L (P less than 0.0001), the mean low level being 2.81 mmol/L. Seventy-four per cent of falls occurred within 52 weeks of the start of therapy, 19.5 weeks being the average period between a normal and a low plasma potassium level. There was no difference in the fall in potassium level between male and female subjects, and beta-blockers were not obviously protective, although there was a statistically significant smaller fall in potassium level in females treated with them. The clinical significance of the unexpected hypokalaemia is uncertain; but even with fixed-combination diuretics, it remains necessary to monitor the plasma potassium level regularly in order to avoid complicating situations. The results of the present study would cast doubt on the efficacy of 5 mg of amiloride with 50 mg of hydrochlorothiazide in fixed-combination form in preventing hypokalaemia in this clinical situation.

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)

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.

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 this patient is discussed.

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.

Thirty-seven patients (19 Blacks and 18 Indians) suffering from mild hypertension were given each of five diuretics separately for 4 weeks after a 'washout' period on placebo of the same duration. The diuretics used were hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg/d (Dichlotride; Frosst MSD), hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg plus triamterene 50 mg (Dyazide; SKF) 1 tablet per day, amiloride hydrochloride 5 mg plus hydrochlorothiazide 50 mg (Moduretic; MSD) 1 tablet per day, chlorthalidone (Hygroton; Geigy) 50 mg/d and indapamide (Natrilix; Servier) 2.5 mg/d. The study showed that during the acute phase of diuretic therapy for the treatment of hypertension plasma potassium levels were decreased by thiazide and thiazide-like diuretics and increased by potassium-sparing diuretics. However, despite the decrease in plasma potassium levels produced by thiazide diuretics and indapamide these levels did not fall to 3.0 mmol/l or less. All the diuretics were effective in lowering the standing mean arterial pressure when compared with placebo values. In the absence of significant hypokalaemia, the choice of a diuretic for the Black hypertensive patient should therefore be determined by its cost.

The authors assessed in 24 men with stable angina pectoris, using means of ergometry, the antiischaemic and antianginose effects of a combination of the nitrate Iso-Mack retard and the diuretic Moduretic. The effects were compared with the effects of Iso-Mack retard administered alone and with the effects of placebo. The examination was made after a single dose of the drugs and after three-week administration. The authors revealed that a single dose of the diuretic significantly enhanced the effects of nitrate. During long-term administration the diuretic did not prevent a significant diminution of the nitrate effects. Finally the authors discuss possible mechanisms of development of tolerance for nitrates and possibilities how to influence this tolerance by a diuretic.

Diurexan (xipamide) 40 mg daily was substituted for Navidrex-K (cyclopenthiazide 0.25 mg plus potassium 600 mg) or Moduretic (amiloride hydrochloride 5 mg plus hydrochlorthiazide 50 mg) in nineteen patients with oedema of cardiac origin. Comparative efficacy and patient acceptability were examined over a 4-week treatment period. In six patients their oedema was resolved and in a further seven their oedema was markedly reduced (six patients had no overt oedema pre-trial). The body-weight of nine patients decreased by an average of 1.4 kg whilst in seven patients it remained static and in three patients it increased by an average of 1.8 kg. Thirteen of the patients preferred Diurexan at the end of the 4-week trial period, four patients had no preference and two patients preferred their previous treatment.

Acute effects of amiloride (5 mg) (A), hydrochlorthiazide (50 mg) (H) and the combination (50 + 5 mg) (HA) on urinary electrolyte excretion and pH of ten healthy volunteers--taking placebo five times and twice randomly A and HA and once H--were studied during one day. Amiloride showed a natriuretic effect, which in combination was additive to that of hydrochlorthiazide, but the excretion of water did not increase significantly after A. The urinary excretion of potassium decreased with amiloride below normal levels and was at the level of placebo after the combination (HA). There was a striking linear correlation between urinary sodium and potassium with all the drugs, although showing with A a higher potassium retention during high sodium excretion. Urinary pH rose after A and HA during the first 8 hours, but this effect was not seen, however, after H. No significant differences in the effect of the two brands of A (Medamor and Puritrid) on the urinary electrolyte excretion and pH, nor in those of the two brands of HA (Moduretic and Amitrid) were found. Similarly, the plasma concentrations of hydrochlorthiazide, determined gas chromatographically, were equal after Moduretic and Amitrid tablets. The systemic availability of H was faster in the combination of HA than alone. In the AUC value of H, however, there was no significant difference between HA and H tablets.

Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus (NDI) is characterized by the kidney's inability to concentrate urine, which causes intense polyuria that may lead to urinary tract dilation. We report the morphological findings of the urinary tract in ten boys with NDI specifically addressing the presence and changes of urinary tract dilation during treatment.

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.

There is a dearth of reports on possible additive blood pressure (BP)-reducing effect of aerobic exercise on antihypertensive drug in humans. This study investigated the additive BP-reducing effect of aerobic exercise on BP in individuals with uncontrolled hypertension. In this 12-week double-blind study, 120 new-diagnosed individuals with mild-to-moderate hypertension were randomized to receive coamilozide + 5/10 mg of amlodipine + aerobic dance or coamilozide + 5/10 mg of amlodipine alone. Forty-five and 43 participants in exercise and control groups, respectively, completed the 12-week intervention. Addition of aerobic exercise to antihypertensive drug therapy significantly reduced systolic BP (7.1 mm Hg [95% confidence interval: 5.0, 9.3]; P < .001) and diastolic BP (1.7 mm Hg [95% confidence interval: 0.4, 3.0]; P = .009) at 12 weeks. BP control rate differed significantly between exercise (53.9%) and control (35.3%) groups, P < .001. Postintervention, proportion of participants in exercise group who had their number of antihypertensive drug reduced to one (20.3%) differed from that in control group (11.1%); (χ(2) = 11.0; P = .001). Combination of aerobic dance and antihypertensive drugs reduces number of antihypertensive drugs needed to achieve BP control and enhances BP control in individuals with hypertension on two antihypertensive drugs.

Amiloride hydrochloride has now been recognized as a safe and effective potassium-sparing diuretic alternative to triamterene with a similar mechanism of pharmacologic activity. Studies were undertaken to assess the difference between therapy with the triamterene-hydrochlorothiazide combination (Dyazide) and an amiloride hydrochloride-hydrochlorothiazide combination (Moduretic) on renal prostaglandin production, since an increase in renal prostaglandin synthesis has been shown to mediate or enhance the pharmacologic action of certain diuretic drugs. Eight subjects treated for four weeks with triamterene-hydrochlorothiazide were compared with nine patients similarly treated moduretic buy with amiloride-hydrochlorothiazide. A 24-hour urine sample for prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) assay was collected under control conditions and after six weeks of therapy with either diuretic in all patients. The PGE2 excretion increased in the amiloride-hydrochlorothiazide-treated group; in the other group PGE2 excretion actually declined. It is concluded from these studies that therapy with amiloride-hydrochlorothiazide enhanced renal PGE2 production, whereas that with triamterene-hydrochlorothiazide actually decreased renal PGE2 production. This difference is an important renal consequence of the use of either drug and should be considered in the choice between these diuretic combinations.

A cross-over study comparing the effects of doxazosin, moduretic and amlodipine on fasting blood glucose and blood pressure levels in 9 adult hypertensive Nigerians is presented. The results showed that doxazosin, moduretic and amlodipine were effective in reducing diastolic blood pressure and thus confirmed our previous observation of blood pressure reduction during the monotherapies of these antihypertensive agents. The study further indicated the effectiveness of doxazosin in the management of severe essential hypertension in Nigerian patients. Fasting blood glucose level significantly moduretic buy decreased during doxazosin treatment phase and increased during moduretic phase, while amlodipine treatment did not have any effect on blood glucose level. In conclusion, the cross-over study seem to confirm the effectiveness of doxazosin therapy and its antidiabetic effect in hypertensive patients. The effectiveness of amlodipine therapy in controlling blood pressure was also observed, but no effect on blood glucose level, while moduretic therapy has hyperglycemic effect despite its effectiveness in blood pressure control in African patients.

This study aims to describe factors associated with cognitive decline among 2584 subjects, aged 65-74, who were followed up for 54 months in the Medical Research Council Elderly Hypertension Trial (1982-1989). The subjects completed a cognitive test, the Paired Associate Learning Test (PALT), five times over this period. Decline on the PALT was associated with advanced age, male sex, rural residence, depression Lasix 200 Mg and low intelligence. These effects were modified by gender and level of pre-morbid intelligence. Advanced age, rural residence and number of cigarettes smoked daily were only associated with PALT decline among women of below median intelligence. The association between depression and PALT decline was only apparent in women of below median intelligence and men of above median intelligence. While these findings are consistent with other research into cognitive decline, they differ in some ways from reported risk factors for dementia, suggesting aetiological separateness. That women were more vulnerable than men to the effects of age and smoking raises the question of the impact on cognition of accelerated atherosclerosis after the menopause.

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 Indocin 25 Mg significant overall change was found.

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 Vantin Generic Name in the total metabolic potassium in the organism. The patients tolerate the drug well. It is recommended for wide clinical use.

A 44-year-old woman was seen on three separate occasions for acute pulmonary edema which had developed 30 minutes after ingestion of a single hydrochlorothiazide-amiloride (Moduretic) tablet. Eighteen cases of hydrochlorothiazide-induced pulmonary edema have been reported previously. Clinical findings and investigations in the present Sinequan Tablets and previous cases indicate a noncardiogenic cause for the pulmonary edema. Increased pulmonary vascular permeability is probably involved. So far, attempts to demonstrate an immunological mechanism have failed and the pathophysiology remains uncertain. The reaction may be difficult to differentiate from left ventricular failure in patients with cardiac disease. Attention should be drawn to this severe but rare side effect of a frequently used diuretic.

Calcium controls numerous events within the vessel wall. Permeability of the endothelium is calcium dependent, as are platelet activation and adhesion, vascular smooth muscle proliferation and migration, and synthesis of fibrous connective tissue. Double-helix computerized tomography is a noninvasive technique that can detect, measure Vasotec Dosage Forms , and compare coronary calcification in the coronary arteries. Using this method, our objective was to determine whether administration of nifedipine once daily in lieu of diuretics in high-risk hypertensive patients will arrest or slow down the progression of coronary artery calcification. The study was designed as a side arm of INSIGHT (International Nifedipine Study: Intervention as Goal for Hypertension Therapy), aimed to show the efficacy of nifedipine once daily versus co-amilozide (hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg, amiloride 2.5 mg) in high-risk hypertensive patients. A total of 201 patients with a total calcium score of >/=10 at the onset of study who underwent an annual double-helix computerized tomography for 3 years were analyzed for efficacy. Inhibition of coronary calcium progression was significant in the nifedipine versus the co-amilozide group during the first year (3.18% versus 27%, respectively, P=0.02), not significant during the second year (28.5% versus 47%, respectively, P=0.14), and significant during the third year (40% versus 78%, respectively, P=0.02). The results point to a slower progression of coronary calcification in hypertensive patients on nifedipine once daily versus co-amilozide.

We report a case of lithium overdose Vasotec Common Dosage in a patient who presented in non-convulsive status epilepticus. The lithium toxicity was probably due to interaction with Moduretic. The diagnosis was not suspected until electroencephalography was performed. This case underscores the importance of therapeutic drug level monitoring of lithium, especially where toxicity is suspected, and the indispensable role electroencephalography plays by allowing a correct diagnosis to be made promptly.

To study the effect of a combination of amiloride, 5 mg, and hydrochlorothiazide, 50 mg (Moduretic), on plasma and skeletal muscle electrolytes in Propecia Cost Canada 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.

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 Hyzaar Pill Identification 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.

In a randomized double blind study 100 men (mean age 46 (22-64) years) with mild to moderate hypertension were followed every 3rd month for one year. Fifty were randomized to atenolol 50 mg and 50 to hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg+amiloride 5 mg (co-amiloride) once daily. The doses were doubled at 3 or 6 months if diastolic blood pressure (DBP) remained > or = 95 mmHg. If DBP was > or = 95 mmHg even at 6 or 9 months, patients were classified as non-responders, and nifedipine 20 mg b.i.d. was added. After one year 31/50 randomized to atenolol and 17/50 randomized to co-amiloride had responded to monotherapy (p < 0.05). Neither clinical findings nor haemodynamic measurements by Doppler at baseline could Dydrogesterone Duphaston Tablets distinguish between co-amiloride responders and non-responders. Conversely, non-responders to atenolol as compared with atenolol responders had higher body weight (p = 0.02), higher systolic BP (p = 0.03), higher DBP (p = 0.009), stroke volume (p = 0.04), and cardiac output (p = 0.0002) combined with lower total systemic vascular resistance (p = 0.02). This suggests that some were apparent non-responders due to too low dosing of atenolol rather than true non-responders. Measurements of haemodynamics may be of importance in the assessment of optimal antihypertensive therapy according to baseline and follow-up haemodynamic aberrations.

Impaired salivary gland function can be a major cause of late morbidity following the treatment of head and neck cancer with radiotherapy. A large number of commonly prescribed medications can also reduce salivary gland function. We report three patients with already impaired salivary gland function following successful radiotherapy in whom additional prescribed medication led to an increased reduction in salivary flow, thus further impairing the quality of life of these patients. Stopping the medication resulted in subjective and objective improvement in salivary gland function.

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 cross-over study, comparing the effects of doxazosin, moduretic and amlodipine on plasma lipid and lipoprotein levels in 9 hypertensive Nigerians aged 35 to 65 years is presented. Doxazosin therapy had favourable lipid changes characterized by a statistically significant reduction in total cholesterol (TC) at 6 months. Though consistent reduction was observed in total triglycerides (TG) low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), very low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (VLDLC) upto 6 months, no effect was seen on high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDLC). This is against unfavourable increments in the mean values of TC, VLDLC, LDLC/HDLC and decrease in HDLC/TC during moduretic treatment phase. Amlodipine therapy did not alter the lipid and lipoprotein levels. The non-significant variation in the mean high density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDLC) level observed with these agents, seem to suggest that HDL-cholesterol metabolism may be maintained during antihypertensive pharmacotherapy.

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 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.

Diurexan (xipamide) 40 mg daily was substituted for Navidrex-K (cyclopenthiazide 0.25 mg plus potassium 600 mg) or Moduretic (amiloride hydrochloride 5 mg plus hydrochlorthiazide 50 mg) in nineteen patients with oedema of cardiac origin. Comparative efficacy and patient acceptability were examined over a 4-week treatment period. In six patients their oedema was resolved and in a further seven their oedema was markedly reduced (six patients had no overt oedema pre-trial). The body-weight of nine patients decreased by an average of 1.4 kg whilst in seven patients it remained static and in three patients it increased by an average of 1.8 kg. Thirteen of the patients preferred Diurexan at the end of the 4-week trial period, four patients had no preference and two patients preferred their previous treatment.

The clinical efficacy and safety of ibopamine and diuretic therapy were compared in a multicenter, multinational, parallel, positive-controlled, randomized, double-blind, 12-week study, involving 103 patients with mild CHF (NYHA Class II). Body weight, NYHA functional class, symptom assessment scores, laboratory blood tests, and exercise testing were evaluated at baseline at interim visits and at the end of 12 weeks. Clinical events were monitored throughout the study. There was no difference in any of the considered parameters between the two patient groups at baseline and at the end of the 12-week evaluation. A trend of improvement in clinical conditions that did not reach statistical significance was noted in each group throughout the study, as a probably "trial effect." Five patients on ibopamine had severe clinical events leading to drug discontinuation (CHF worsening, ventricular tachycardia, elevation of liver transaminases, headache, gastrointestinal disorders) and five on diuretic therapy experienced serious side effects (skin rash, palpitation, atrial fibrillation, elevation of liver transaminases, manic episode). One patient died while on diuretic therapy. Only headache and skin rash were considered to be related to the therapy (ibopamine and diuretic therapy, respectively). Our trial suggests that ibopamine can be safely and effectively used as an alternative for diuretics for up to 3 months in patients with mild CHF.

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.

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.

A woman with unresectable squamous cell carcinoma of the thymus was treated with combination chemotherapy consisting of cyclophosphamide, adriamycin, cisplatin, and prednisone. Rapid tumor response and hyperuricemia occurred within 10 days after the first course of chemotherapy. Mediastinal irradiation was given after two courses of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy was continued until the total dose of adriamycin reached 450 mg/m2. The patient is alive and well in remission more than 111 weeks after therapy was begun and more than 63 weeks after treatment was discontinued. Further study of this chemotherapeutic regimen in squamous cell carcinoma of the thymus is needed. Monitoring of serum uric acid levels may be required.

Twenty patients with essential hypertension aged 39-70 years, underwent 20 weeks (short-term) and 30 weeks (long-term) lipid and lipoprotein assessment following moduretic (combination of hydrochlorothiazide and amloride) therapy. Moduretic caused adverse alterations in plasma lipid and lipoprotein concentrations at 20 weeks, characterized by increases in total cholesterol (TC) (9-23%), low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) (18-42%), Triglycerides (TG) (12-26%) and LDL-C/HDL-C (36-92%), as well as decreases in high density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) (-14 to -26%) and HDL-C/TC (-23 to -39%). For 12 patients who were continued on the same therapy for the longer period of 30 weeks, the adverse effects were less pronounced when compared with the short-term effects. The increases in TC (9.6%), in LDL-C (21%), and in LDL-C/HDL-C (48%), and the decreases in the mean HDL-C (-20%), and in HDL-C/TC (-25%), were all significant. In contrast, the slight increase in TG noted during the long-term moduretic therapy was not significant. Our data suggest that moduretic therapy induces altered lipid-lipoprotein patterns in hypertensive patients. However, the possible influence of baseline cholesterol concentration and the duration of therapy, may be important factors in the lipid response to moduretic therapy.

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 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.

A comparative study was made of 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.

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.

A method has been developed for the separation of hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride by high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method on a C18 column with detection at 280 nm. The optimal conditions of separation were determined with the aid of 'window diagram' technique of Laub and Purnell. The effect of simultaneously varying the pH, proportion aqueous acetic acid and methanol in the mobile phase were studied to optimize the separation. A response surface diagram was used to optimize the experimental conditions for the separation. The mobile phase composition that provides an acceptable resolution hydrochlorothiazide and amiloride in a short elution time is water:methanol (60:40) and pH 3.2 (pH adjusted to 3.2 with CH3COOH). A method is applied for the quantitative analysis of Moduretic tablets (Merck Sharp & Dokme International). The powdered tablets are extracted with methanol, containing caffeine as the internal standard, and assayed by comparison of peak areas after liquid chromatography.
