Reconstiuting the drug Diuril, what should be the dose?
A 0.5 grams vial of powdered Diuril is available. Directions for reconstitution state: Add 18 mL of dilutent to yield 28mg in 1 mL. to prepare a dosage of 300mg how many mL of Diuril should you withdrawl from the vial after reconstituing the drug as directed???
Asked by Ben Demsey 6 months ago.
Set up a proportion: so you have 28mg / 1mL = 300mg / x where x=how many mL you need to draw up in order to get 300mg. Solve the equation for x to get: 10.714 mL (and you could round to 10.7 mL) of reconstituted Diuril needed. Answered by Leeanne Taibl 6 months ago.

Asked by Amparo Bacik 6 months ago.
my 3 yr old has too much calcium in her kidneys/ blood/ and urine. also has too much sodium in her urine...and blood in her urine....dr. perscribed Diurel while we figure out whats going on with her...i have read the side effects but what should i expect from someone who has actually taken this? she is only 3 and very VERY petite. Answered by Tianna Bellerdine 6 months ago.
The adult version can cause lightheadedness on position change (standing up), dizziness, and sun sensitivity for the skin. It's not a very potent diuretic (and is rarely used for adults) and should have less side effects than similar drugs I'm respectfully withholding comment on the pediatric version as that would be beyond my field of expertise.

r u kidding me you must be the suckiest nurse ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Answered by Machelle Tagliente 6 months ago.
are you a nurse? remember desired/stock x vehicle? 300 is your desired dose 500 is your stock dose and you reconstitute it to 18 ml, right? so 300mg/500mg x 18ml would give you, 10.8mL get it? :D Answered by Quincy Tuter 6 months ago.
10.7 mL would give you ~300mg (actually 299.6mg) 28mg/mL divide this into 300mg (28mg /1mL = 300mg/XmL) solve: 300x1/28=X mL answer ~10.7 mL Answered by Season Verwers 6 months ago.

Answered by Merri Kiyuna 6 months ago.
yes i have heard it one of my twin daughters had what is called multicystic kidney which means has something to do with it being dialated it means that the urine is backed up in the kidney they found it when i was 5 months pregnant and they told me that it would be treated with antibiotics but that wasnt the case for her when she was born it was worse then what they thought it would be her tube that goes to the kidney was severly blocked so she had to have a kidney romoved when she was 4 months old she is now 13 months old but she is on medicine right now that is called diuril but her kidney is doing good so far i dont let it bother me as much as i use to but i still think about it alot i hope with me telling you this it doesnt scare you i just thought i would tell you and her scar is maybe and inch long and she went home a couple hours after surgery and by the next day she was back to being my happy baby girl hope this helps nicole Answered by Shon Demasters 6 months ago.

What are the benefits of a diuretic?
coffee, jamaica, etc...
Asked by Jackson Tenebruso 6 months ago.
Diuretics, which cause reduction of water and sodium, have been the mainstays of anti-hypertensive therapy.Diuretics are inexpensive and are the drug of choice for most people with hypertension. Diuretics significantly reduce the risk for stroke; they may in fact be the most important anti-hypertensive agent for preventing this brain attack. They also appear to protect against stroke in people without hypertension. They are associated with lower risk for heart attack (although this is not as significant as their protection against stroke). They may protect against blood clots. Diuretics may help reduce the risk for dementia and the rate of fractures in elderly people who have taken them for a long time. Three primary types of diuretics exist: Thiazides. Thiazides often serve as the basis for high blood pressure treatment, either taken alone for mild to moderate hypertension or used in combination with other types of drugs. There are many thiazides and thiazide-related drugs; some common ones are chlorothiazide (Diuril), chlorthalidone (Hygroton), indapamide (Lozol), and hydrochlorothiazide (Esidrix, HydroDiuril). Loop diuretics. Loop diuretics block sodium transport in parts of the kidney; they act faster than thiazides and have a great diuretic effect. It is important therefore to control the medication and avoid dehydration and potassium loss. Loop diuretics include bumetanide (Bumex), furosemide (Lasix), and ethacrynic acid (Edecrin). Potassium sparing agents. Some potassium-sparing diuretics include amiloride (Midamor), spironolactone (Aldactone), and triamterene (Dyrenium).

Answered by Shawn Elmer 6 months ago.
Tammy, It is a long known side effect with prednisone that it will cause the body to retain fluid. It is not true weight but it is uncomfortable. Talk to your doctor. Ask if you can take any "water pills" like Diuril to get rid of the excess fluid. If there is none, ask about a prednisone substitute that does not cause so much fluid retention. Answered by Tuyet Venus 6 months ago.
I know where you are coming from. I been taking Prednisons because of my asthma. It's really annoying. And yes I gained weight. There isn't much you can do, but maybe ask for another pill that does the same but hasn't got the same side effects. Answered by Suzann Scorzelli 6 months ago.
it will b egreat if they can get you off the pred. Otherwise, yes it causes wieght gain big time and other cusshings syndrome type symptoms..... You can work on your diet and eat things like veggies to help fill you but its definately a huge struggle..... I hope they can get you on another drug instead to help the inflammation problems which i assume yuou are taking it for.... Take care of yourself..... Answered by Christine Tellez 6 months ago.
