Triamterene Side Effects: Final Thoughts
You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any complications or if something "just does not seem right" during treatment.
