The Di-Ertride dosage your doctor prescribes will depend on several factors. These include:
- the type and severity of the condition you’re using Di-Ertride to treat
- your age

Typically, your doctor will start you on a low dosage and adjust it over time to reach the dosage that’s right for you. They’ll ultimately prescribe the smallest dosage that provides the desired effect.
The following information describes dosages that are commonly used or recommended. However, be sure to take the dosage your doctor prescribes for you. Your doctor will determine the best dosage to suit your needs.

Q: Is it safe to take the fluid pill triamterene-hctz for years?
A: The combination of Di-Ertride and triamterene (Dyazide) is used to treat fluid retention and high blood pressure. These types of drugs are often the first drugs used to manage high blood pressure. According to the package insert, there are no warnings or precautions regarding long-term use. As with all drugs, the clinical effect should be routinely monitored. In the case of triamterene, which helps the body maintain potassium levels, appropriate monitoring of serum potassium is recommended. If you are concerned about long-term treatment with Di-Ertride and triamterene, you may want to contact your health care provider.

Does Di-Ertride cause weight loss? (If so, how much?)
Yes. All data from trials in which the effect of Di-Ertride on body weight was evaluated suggest that the medication causes clinically significant weight loss as a side effect. The fact that Di-Ertride causes weight loss shouldn’t be very surprising given that it functions as a diuretic – causing the body to excrete sodium and water stores.
Rated Di-Ertride (Microzide) for Hypertension Report
Been taking this for 3 years now. No bad side effects—just had to pee more. Stomach is flatter and face has more definition too due to no longer having fluid retention. BP is controlled at 120/83 on average (I started out at 140/90). I did take lisinopryl for a while because doctors thought my bottom number was still too high. Although it worked better (112/72 avg) I had terrible side effects with that drug including the dreaded cough, so I went back to HCTZ. Everyone is different, but I can say HCTZ works well for me and I plan on sticking with it until I get off of BP meds completely.
Rated Di-Ertride (Microzide) for Hypertension Report
I have been taking this drug for about a week and have had little side effects. I have been a little more tired in the afternoon. Have lost 5 pounds and have to pee more. But no rashes or other severe side effects like others have. I take 4 BP medications now so my BP is pretty good. I had to get off Linsinopril due to cough. Taking Losartan instead with mild diuretic. All seems okay so far. Will update in a month or two.
How to use Di-Ertride
Take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually once daily in the morning with or without food. If you take this drug too close to bedtime, you may need to wake up to urinate. It is best to take this medication at least 4 hours before your bedtime.
The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.
Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. Keep taking this medication even if you feel well. Most people with high blood pressure do not feel sick.
If you also take certain drugs to lower your cholesterol (bile acid-binding resins such as cholestyramine or colestipol), take Di-Ertride at least 4 hours before or at least 4 to 6 hours after these medications.
Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse (for example, your blood pressure readings remain high or increase).
Lisinopril lowers blood pressure and has kidney protective properties which are good. Di-Ertride works in the kidneys to lower your blood pressure, your kidneys aren't that bad off to use something else. I say this because when your kidney function decreases to a certain point, Di-Ertride isn't able to get where it needs to be in order to work. Lipitor is for cholesterol and really doesn't have anything to do with the kidneys.
Thank you so much for your response to my question. I really understand now why I am taking these drugs for my kidneys!
Di-Ertride and Weight Loss
Because Di-Ertride is designed to help eliminate the excessive fluid accumulation and swelling, its use may cause weight loss.
If you experience significant weight loss and/or weakness/fatigue, talk with your doctor.
Use Di-Ertride only as directed. The FDA hasn't approved Di-Ertride for use as a weight-loss supplement.
