Patients usually do not require doses in excess of 50 mg of hydrochlorothiazide daily when combined with other antihypertensive agents.
Timolol is not significantly dialyzed. Limited data from 2 patients undergoing hemodialysis using a Travenol UF II standard coil dialyzer reveal no significant difference between the arterial and venous plasma concentrations during dialysis.
If the antihypertensive response is not satisfactory, another nondiuretic antihypertensive agent may be added.
