My 35 year old son was given triamterene for Menieres; immediately he had siezures, confusion, and manic depression episodes. It took us almost 2 years to realize the triamterene was the cause. He is some what better after getting off the medicine but still suffers these milder side effects. Is there anyone else with these symptoms? Does anyone know of a class action suit ? Our lives have been forever changed by triamterene. Uses beware.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

There is no proper cure for this disease. The good part of it is there are many possible "symptomatic" treatments by which patient can lessen the growth of the disease.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#teft for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.
