Is triamterene hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) 37.5/25 a low dose med for high bp? My doc gave me this medicine as sometimes my BP gets to 140-150/85-95. Is this dose safe?

In brief: Medication

Hello. This is the lowest dose of the med.
It is a combination diuretic designed to avoid low potassium, which can sometimes happen with diuretics. Like all BP meds, we always tell patients to monitor for common side effects like dizziness, fatigue.
