Congestive Heart Failure Home > Amiloride HCL Drug Information

People with high blood pressure or fluid retention due to congestive heart failure may benefit from amiloride hydrochloride (HCl), sold under the brand name Midamor®. This medicine comes in tablet form and should be taken once a day, preferably with food. However, some people may not need to take it on a daily basis.
Your healthcare provider will determine your dose based on various factors, such as how you respond to the drug when beginning treatment and if you are taking any other medications, vitamins, or supplements. This is why it is important to provide your healthcare provider with complete information on your medical history. This will help him or her be sure that amiloride hydrochloride is the right medicine for you.
