Triamterene should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The capsules should be kept in an airtight container.
Keep triamterene and all medications out of the reach of children.
If you do not take your triamterene as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Do not take a double dose.
Triamterene capsules are available in the following strengths:
- Triamterene 50 mg capsules
- Triamterene 100 mg capsules.
Several medications are available that combine triamterene with hydrochlorothiazide (see Triamterene-HCTZ for more information).
Although the patent for triamterene expired some time ago, no manufacturers have chosen to make generic triamterene.
