Generic Moduretic: An Overview

Moduretic® (amiloride-HCTZ) is a prescription medication that has been licensed to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and water retention (edema). It is a combination of two diuretic medications: amiloride and hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ).
 
Brand-name Moduretic was originally made by Merck and Company. However, the patent has expired, and generic Moduretic is now available. In fact, because Merck has stopped making Moduretic, generic amiloride is the only option. It is common for manufacturers to stop making brand-name medications once a generic version is available, especially with rarely used medications such as Moduretic.
