The antihypertensive and biochemical effects of 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide alone or 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide alone or in combination with triamterene (either 37.5 or 75 mg) once daily were studied in 26 patients with essential hypertension. After a 5-week run-in period the patients were randomized to receive active therapy in a cross-over manner. Each treatment period lasted 3 months. All drugs significantly (p less than 0.01) lowered both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. There were no differences in blood pressure between the medication periods. Serum potassium concentration was slightly lower during all medication periods than during the run-in period. This change was statistically significant (p less than 0.01) only on 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide daily. There were no significant changes in serum magnesium during any of the periods compared to the run-in period. The lowest values were recorded on 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide alone and the highest on 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide plus 75 mg triamterene daily. A slight increase in serum urate was recorded in all medication periods compared to the run-in period. No significant changes were observed in serum total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol or triglycerides between any of the peri...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
