What is amiloride?
Amiloride is a potassium-sparing diuretic (water pill) that prevents your body from absorbing too much salt and keeps your potassium levels from getting too low.

Amiloride is used to treat or prevent hypokalemia (low potassium levels in the blood).

Amiloride may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about amiloride?
Do not use this medication if you have kidney disease, urination problems, or high levels of potassium in your blood. Do not use potassium supplements or other diuretics while you are taking amiloride.

Before using this medication, tell your doctor if you have heart or liver disease, or a breathing disorder.

Avoid drinking alcohol, which can increase some of the side effects of amiloride.

Avoid a diet high in salt. Too much salt will cause your body to retain water and can make this medication less effective.

Do not use salt substitutes or low-sodium milk products that contain potassium. These products could cause your potassium levels to get too high while you are taking amiloride.

Avoid becoming overheated or dehydrated during exercise and in hot weather. Follow your doctor's instructions about the type and amount of liquids you should drink. In some cases, drinking too much liquid can be as unsafe as not drinking enough.

What should I discuss with my doctor before taking amiloride?
Do not use this medication if you have:

kidney disease or are unable to urinate;

high potassium levels (hyperkalemia); or

if you are taking potassium supplements, or another potassium-sparing diuretic such Moduretic, spironolactone (Aldactone, Aldactazide), or triamterene (Dyrenium, Dyazide, Maxzide).

If you have certain conditions, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take this medication. Before using amiloride, tell your doctor if you have:

diabetes;

heart disease;

cirrhosis or other liver disease;

a breathing disorder; or

if you are using another diuretic.

How should I take amiloride?
Take this medication exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take the medication in larger amounts, or take it for longer than recommended by your doctor. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results from this medication.

Take each dose with a full glass of water. Take amiloride with food.

To be sure this medication is not causing harmful effects, your blood will need to be tested on a regular basis. Your kidney function may also need to be tested. It is important that you not miss any scheduled visits to your doctor.

Amiloride can interfere with the results of a glucose tolerance test. Stop using this medication for at least 3 days before you have this test. Tell any doctor who treats you that you are using amiloride.

Store this medication at room temperature away from heat, light, and moisture. Do not allow the tablets to freeze.

What happens if I miss a dose?

What happens if I overdose?
Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine.

Overdose symptoms may include dizziness, thirst, feeling light-headed, slow heartbeat, or fainting.

What should I avoid while taking amiloride?
Avoid drinking alcohol, which can increase some of the side effects of amiloride. Do not use salt substitutes or low-sodium milk products that contain potassium. These products could cause your potassium levels to get too high while you are taking amiloride.
