General Information on Midamor
Midamor, chemically known as Amiloride, is basically a ‘water pill’ or ‘diuretic’ that cures Hypokalemia by maintaining the level of potassium in the blood. It helps your body stay away from excess salt and water which ultimately results into a lowered potassium level in your bloodstream. Hence, you should stop using other diuretics or supplementary potassium salts if you buy Midamor.
The drug is also capable of treating Hypertension, Edema or sudden heart failure caused due to the use of other diuretics like Hydrochlorothiazide, Furosemide etc. which eventually puts a stop to several major lifestyle diseases. As Amiloride often leads to Hyperkalemia or high potassium levels, you must examine your potassium levels on a regular basis and seek doctor’s advice on symptoms such as uneven heartbeat, muscle cramping or numbness as precautions.
Side effects of Midamor
If you take Midamor with other diuretics, it may results into dehydration as well as mineral loss from your body. Your physician needs to be informed instantly in the following situations:
- Muscle fatigue or muscle weakness
- Breathing difficulty
- Stomach pain
- Tingling sensation or numbness
- Decreased or stopped urination
- Low fever
- Dizziness or tiredness
- Lack of appetite
- Impatience or faintness
- Abnormal heartbeat
- Jaundice (clay-colored stools and dark urine)
- Extreme thirst, dry mouth
The following side effects of Midamor are common but not so effective:

- Mild nausea
- Loss of appetite
Though allergic reactions to Midamor are not very common, you should seek medical attention in case of acute dizziness, shallow breathing, hives, inflammation or itching of tongue, face, lips or throat etc. If you experience any other side effect after you buy Midamor, contact your physician.
Dosage of Midamor
Use the drug as prescribed by your doctor. You may develop uneven heartbeat, acute vertigo, or fainting if taken in overdose. A missed dose can be taken as soon as you remember it. Take the help of a doctor if you ever face serious troubles.
Amiloride should be taken with food each time. Follow doctor’s instructions strictly about starting, stopping and altering the doses. Regular medical tests are necessary to get best results.

- Liver problems
- Kidney disorder
- Mineral imbalance

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
