My husband was prescribed Triamterene/HCTZ 37.5/25 mg as a diuretic

My husband was prescribed Triamterene/HCTZ 37.5/25 mg as a diuretic because he may have fluid buildup in his ear due to Menier’s Disease. He also takes enalapril, an ACE inhibitor, for high blood pressure. Almost immediately after starting the diuretic, he experienced listlessness and fatigue that have continued since starting the diuretic about 6 days ago. He seems weak at times. I’m reading that enalapril and similar drugs should not be combined with Triamterene/ HCTZ. He’s thinking of calling tomorrow about going off the diuretic. His bp was controlled with just the enalapril. I’m thinking his bp May be getting too low. Thanks.
Sorry, didn’t realize I needed to pay for this. We will just call doctor tomorrow.

Dr. Grief, I was recently diagnoised with Meneires disease. In trying to find the proper dosage of medication to take to manage my symptons I was at one time prescribed - Hydrochlorothiazide 12.5mg. That didnt seem to work. I have now been taking Triamterene-HCTZ 37.5- 25mg once a day. I have been having success with this. However, I have a 2 months supply of the Hydrochlorothiazide 12.5mg now that I spent money on and am not using. If I take 2 of the 12.5 mg is it the same as the Triamterene 25mg? I would hate to waste this prescription. Jeanne Wood

My physician s office is now closed. She prescribed Ciprofloxacin HCL 500mg twice daily for an upper respiratory issue that may be mild pneumonia. I picked up the meds today and the pharmacist has me concerned about taking this medication indicating kidney issues, ligament issues, possible yeast infection (I m female). I take Triamterene HCTZ, Metoprolol, Lipitor, a baby aspirin at night and Xanax before bed. I m now frightened to take the antibiotic which I know is so important for getting back to good health. I ve been reading and am concerned about taking the diuretic with this new medication and other possible drug interactions. I m also wondering if it s OK to take 325 mg aspirin. Fever is currently just a little over 100. I m a 67 year old female.
