The usual dose of Dyazide is one or two capsules given once daily, with monitoring of serum potassium and of the clinical effect.

What Drugs, Substances, or Supplements Interact with Dyazide?

Dyazide may interact with lithium, amphotericin, methenamine, steroids, blood thinners, insulin or oral diabetes medicine, laxatives, ACE inhibitors, indomethacin or other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), or other medicines that make you light-headed (such as cold or allergy medicine, narcotics, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures, depression, or anxiety).
