Ditide Tablet is a combination of two diuretics: Benzthiazide and Triamterene. They work by removing extra water and certain electrolytes from the body through urine. Over time, benzthiazide also relaxes blood vessels but causes potassium loss. Triamterene is added as it conserves potassium, thereby balancing its levels in the body.
Taking Triamterene with alcohol may have additive effects in lowering your blood pressure. You may experience headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, and/or changes in pulse or heart rate.
