Description of Moduret
Moduret is a combination of two drugs, amiloride hydrochloride and hydrochlorothiazide. Both the active ingredients present in this drug are diuretics (water pills). While amiloride hydrochloride is listed as a potassium-sparring diuretic, hydrochlorothiazide is a potent thiazide diuretic. The generic name of Moduret is Amiloride, Hydrochlorothiazide.
Moduret is available in two strengths, Moduret 2.5-25 mg (2.5 mg of amiloride hydrochloride and 25 mg of hydrochlorothiazide) and Moduret 5-50 mg (5 mg of amiloride hydrochloride and 50 mg of hydrochlorothiazide). This drug is meant for oral administration only.

Indications & Dosage of Moduret
Moduret is indicated for the treatment of:
- High blood pressure
- Heart failure
- Fluid retention due to liver cirrhosis
Diuretics such as Moduret works by removing excess water from your blood. Reducing the amount of fluid in patient’s body, in turn, helps in lowering blood pressure.
The exact dosage of Moduret may vary from patient to patient. The recommended dose for patients suffering from high blood pressure is 1 tablet of Moduret each day. The recommended dose for treating fluid retention due to liver cirrhosis is 2 tablets each day. Patients suffering from heart failure are usually asked to take 1 tablet of Moduret each day.
Diuretics increase the amount of urine produced. Taking Moduret in the evening or night may affect your sleep as you may need to get up in the night to urinate. That is why patients are recommended to take their Moduret dosage in the morning.
