What is Generic Moduretic?
Generic Moduretic or Generic Co-amilozide is a term used for combination drug which effect is due to the two active substances Amiloride and Hydrochlorothiazide. We say that these names are “terms” because they are not registered brands or trademarks but rather terms used to help people who want to buy a cheaper identical version of the brand medication to find it easier based on the names they are familiar with if they reside in the U.S., UK or Canada where these names for the drugs are mostly used.
When can you use Generic Moduretic?
As with any other medication, it is preferable to buy Generic Moduretic if your doctor prescribes or recommends you to use the drug. Of course, your therapist most likely will prescribe you the brand-name drug but it doesn’t mean that you cannot opt for a generic version. However, make sure to check that it corresponds in the active substance and composition to the medication appointed by your healthcare provider who takes responsibility for your treatment.
Amiloride/Hydrochlorothiazide is primarily prescribed for hypertension, congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver accompanied by ascites, and swelling caused by water retention in the body, and other conditions in which the diuretic (water pill) effect is needed to cope with the symptoms.
What is the dosage regimen if you order Generic Moduretic online?
If you buy authorized and licensed generic that is properly tested and approved, which is a must in case you buy Moduretic from our online pharmacy, you can use the medication in absolutely the same manner as your physician prescribed you or according to the instruction that comes with the drug. Here you can find the information about the generally accepted dosages identified during tests:
The starting treatment daily dosages for adults for hypertension and congestive heart failure are the same – 5 mg/50 mg of Amiloride/Hydrochlorothiazide. The daily dosage can be taken either in one or two intakes. Subsequently, if the drug is tolerated well but no sufficient effect is achieved, the daily dosage can be increased to 10 mg of Amiloride per 100 mg of Hydrochlorothiazide or two standard pills. The increased dosage is also taken either in one intake or divided into two dosages. Further increase of the dosage is fruitless. If the effect is not achieved with the increased standard dosage, then you need to consider other medications for your condition rather than further increasing the daily dose.
Dosage adjustments of Moduretic
People with mild to moderate liver or kidney function impairment and elderly patients should take the medication with caution, i.e. frequent monitoring of potassium levels is advised since in them the risk of hyperkalemia is increased compared to patients with healthy liver or kidneys.
How does Amiloride/Hydrochlorothiazide act?
For better understanding how the medication provides the effect it is used for, here we share the simplified information that can be understood by the people with no medical background. If you want to find more details, please refer to the instruction that comes with the drug when you order Moduretic.
The medication renders blood pressure lowering effect which is mostly caused by the action of Hydrochlorothiazide action while Amiloride is used in the formula to avoid potassium loss due to increased urination caused by the diuretic.
The effect is observed from one to two hours after the pill intake and maintains within 24 hours after the intake.
Amiloride inhibits sodium re-absorption and promotes its washing out of the body as it blocks the epithelial sodium channel.
Hydrochlorothiazide lessens the re-absorption of sodium and chloride ions, enhances the excretion of magnesium ions, and lowers washing out of calcium ions and uric acid. It also oppresses the reactivity of the vascular wall as a response to vasoconstrictive effects of mediators. As a result of lowered concentration of sodium ions in the cytoplasm of myocyte of the blood vessels, it causes the lowering of the circulating blood volumes thereby reducing the arterial blood pressure.
What side effects can Moduretic use result in?
Side effects can develop on the basis of the use of any medication and even vitamins and supplements, so it’s no surprise that an antihypertensive drug can cause a variety of negative symptoms. It doesn’t mean that you will necessarily have any of them but you have to know that they may occur.

In fact, all generic medications are identical to their analogs but there is a chance that you will get an inferior medication if you opt for an unknown seller whose prices are greatly lower than the average prices for the same medications among online pharmacies situated outside the U.S. Normally, all pharmacies located in the country highly overprice all products but foreign drugstores that operate online set realistic prices but some of them set even lower prices which can be a sign that they are selling counterfeit meds.
