Triamterene. I use triamterene is combination with hydrochlorthiazide for BP control and to prevent potassium loss due to hydrochlorthiazide.
Which is best potassium sparing drug for htn (less side effect, effective, &popular) spironolactone or triamterene you recommend for your patients.?
Spironolactone. Spironolactone is more effective and used more often.
Triamterene. Spironolactone can cause breast enlargement, so it is not an ideal drug for men. Triamterene is a diuretic and is tolerated better.
