I was originally on amlodipine besylate 10 mg with the triamterene 75 mg/hctz50 mg to lower blood pressure. Had to go back on it to prevent fluid building up 3 days went to 14 # fluid.
Its obvious to me you can't stop diuretics (water pills). Filling up with fluids is a problem that isn't going away so you can stop meds. I had a dr think I could stop mine and within 4 days I had gained 5 pounds and was having trouble breathing. I won that argument, lolo. I also wasn't nuts about my legs looking like tree trunks. So stop trying to get off the stuff, you're going to constantly have this problem.
