General Information on Moduret
Moduret is a drug generally used for treating edema and high blood pressure. It is a water pill or a diuretic and is a combination of two diuretics- amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide. The key role of Moduret is to assist the body in flushing out excess salt and water from the system through the kidneys, which helps lower blood pressure. The generic name of Moduret is amiloride/hydrochlorothiazide.
Side effects of the drug
All drugs have the potential to produce side effects. Some side effects are temporary and wear off in time. These side effects are minor and generally do not hamper the general functions of the body. Some of the minor side effects that users of Moduret may experience are as follows:
- Stomach pain and aches
- Dizziness and headaches
- Loss of appetite
Apart from the aforementioned side effects, there are some other side effects of Moduret that are of a more serious nature. These major side effects are persistent and often need to be checked up by medical health care professionals if they pose a danger to one’s health. Some of the more serious side effects experienced by users of Moduret are:
- Allergic reactions like rashes, breathing difficulties, chest pain, swelling in various parts of the body, etc.
- Leg muscle aches and cramps
- Changes in heart rate
- Severe vomiting
- Changes in the frequency or pattern of urination or other urinary problems
Certain precautions should be taken by those who decide to buy Moduret and use it. People allergic to the substances present in Moduret and those with a history of kidney problems should avoid Moduret and look for another altenative. Certain medical conditions may worsen the side effects of Moduret as well. People who plan to use Moduret in such instances should check with the doctor first to determine the safety of the drug. Pregnant and breastfeeding women, people with allergies to other substances, and those who are already using other drugs should consult their doctor before they decide to buy Moduret online or from a local retail pharmacy.
The dosage of Moduret is determined by a doctor. There should be no alteration in the amount prescribed by him/her as this can adversely affect the body. It is also advisable for patients to check the container for the exact dosage information. Moduret should be taken orally with food. The drug plays a big part in changing the urinating pattern of an individual. Therefore, it is recommended to have it before 6 pm so that you do not suffer from disturbed sleep due to frequent night urination. It is recommended that Moduret doses be taken daily at the same time. In case of a missed dose, it is best to take the dose as quickly as possible. However, if it is nearly time for the next dose, skip the missed dose. Taking two doses at once can harm the body.
Drug interactions are a common scenario when two or more incompatible medications are consumed during the same time period. It is therefore recommended that you avoid taking potassium sparing diuretics, NSAIDs, Barbiturates, and diabetes medicines before you buy Moduret and use it.

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.
