In brief: Why triamterene?

Triamterene is a diuretic used for hypertension or too much fluid in the body. It is not a weight loss med. A patient may lose wt--just water + some electrolytes--it is supposed to be potassium-sparing. This med could be used for another med condition but not routinely used as a weight-loss combination, there could be alterations in your blood chemistries.
