Water-retardant because of both amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide.

  • Both ingredients increase salt secretion through the kidneys.
  • The increased salt secretion will "draw" water and thereby increase urine volume.
  • The increased amount of urine will often lead to frequent urination during the first days of treatment.
  • Amiloride is inhibiting, whereas hydrochlorothiazide promotes the secretion of potassium. However, these two contradictory effects are not a guarantee of a normal potassium balance.
  • The effect occurs after approx. 2 hours and lasts approx. 24 hours.
  • The half life in the blood (T?) is 9-13 hours.

Pharmaceutical forms

Tablets. One tablet contains: 5 mg of amiloride hydrochloride and 50 mg of hydrochlorothiazide.

Special warnings

The medicine should be taken with caution at:

  • elderly
  • poorly functioning kidneys or liver
  • diabetes
  • Addison's disease
  • certain connective tissue disorders.

Potassium and sodium levels in the blood should be checked during treatment as disturbances in potassium balance may occur.

Using other medicines

  • Amilco┬« can also increase the risk of poisoning with lithium (medium-to-medium).
  • Concomitant administration of Amilco┬« and ACE inhibitors (antihypertensive agents) increases the amount of potassium in the blood.
  • Concomitant treatment with sotalol (beta blockers) increases the risk of fainting attacks and the effects of ekg.
  • Co-administration of anti-depressant drugs (SSRIs) or carbamazepine (anti-epileptic drugs) increases the risk of low blood sodium levels.
  • NSAIDs (anti-arthritis and muscle pain) may reduce the effect of Amilco┬«.
  • In combination with Amilco┬« and adrenal gland hormone, the amount of potassium in the blood can be reduced.
