Daily Life Interactions for Dyrenium 100mg Capsule

Elements of your daily lifestyle may have an effect on the medications you are taking. Drug interactions can result in unwanted side effects, reduce the effectiveness of your medicine or possibly increase the action of a particular medicine.

Alcohol and Antihypertensives(Triamterene)
Although an interaction is possible, Ethanol (alchohol) and Antihypertensive Agents (drugs used to reduce high blood pressure) may be used together.

Contact your prescriber if you have dizziness which does not go away.
