CrCl < 10 mL/min: Not advised. CrCl 10-25 mL/min: Initial dosage: 50 milligrams orally two times a day. Conflicts with sodium reabsorption at distal kidney tubule, leading to boosted excretion of salt and water as well as lowered excretion of potassium. C max is 30 ng/mL and also T max is 3 h.



Triamterene is quickly absorbed; max effect is viewed in several days. Period of diuresis relies on a number of factors, especially renal function, however generally it reduces 7 to 9 h after

administration.

severe hepatic condition; hyperkalemia; severe or modern kidney condition or dysfunction, regarding exception of nephrosis. PO 2 to 4 mg/kg/day given up 1 dose or 2 divided dosages(max, 300 mg/day). Might drastically boost lotion potassium levels, potentially leading to heart arrhythmias or heart attack. Do not take with potassium preparations.



Hyperkalemia(lotion potassium higher than 5.5 mEq/L), hyponatremia, hyperchloremia, as well as increases in BUN may take place. Monitor lotion electrolytes as well as BUN levels.
