Diazide is a common misspelling of Dyazide (hydrochlorothiazide/triamterene).

What is Dyazide (Diazide)?

Dyazide (Diazide) is a diuretic (water pill) and contains a combination of a potassium-sparing diuretic (triamterene) and a thiazide diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide)

Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention.

Triamterene is a potassium-sparing diuretic that also prevents your body from absorbing too much salt and keeps your potassium levels from getting too low.

Dyazide (Diazide) is used to treat high blood pressure and fluid retention (edema). Dyazide (Diazide) can be taken alone or with other high blood pressure medications. Dyazide (Diazide) may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Dyazide (Diazide) side effects may include dizziness, lightheadedness, headache, blurred vision, loss of appetite, stomach upset, diarrhea or constipation.
