Digestive System Home > Dyrenium Drug Information

Dyrenium® (triamterene) is a type of diuretic used for treating fluid retention (edema) in adults. The medication comes in capsule form and is usually taken twice a day after meals. Because Dyrenium increases urination, it is best to take your last dose of the day before 6 p.m. to avoid needing to get up to use the bathroom throughout the night, unless your healthcare provider instructs you otherwise.
 
Although most people tolerate it well, Dyrenium is not right for everyone. Safety information on this drug should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before beginning treatment. This includes knowing what products could interact with Dyrenium and being aware of possible side effects, such as fatigue and dry mouth.
