Dyazide, also known as Triazide is one of the most safest and commonly used diuretics by bodybuilders. Triazide is a combination of two different diuretics: Hydrochlorothiazide and triamterene. The advantage of the combination of this compound is that it can excrete a fair amount of water and sodium, but still retain potassium in the body. Triamterene is potassium-sparing and it assists the body in retaining potassium levels. Many diuretics such as Lasix tend to be too aggressive and deplete sodium, potassium, and water which can lead to severe cramps.
For medical purposes, Triazide is used for the purpose of lowering blood pressure. It is sometimes used by itself, or it can be prescribed with other blood pressure medications such as ace inhibitors, beta-blockers, and calcium channel blockers.
