Commonly prescribed for: Non-specific Swelling or Edema
Therapeutic Class: Diuretic and Corticosteroid Combination
Trichlormethiazide and dexamethasone combination is an oral product that was licensed originally as a treatment for udder edema in the cow. Many veterinarians use this drug combination in horses to reduce mild swellings, particularly of the legs. Trichlormethiazide is a diuretic that works at the level of the proximal tubules of the kidneys to decrease the reabsorption of sodium. It has little effect on potassium excretion. Dexamethasone is a corticosteroid. One of the benefits of using a combination product is that each component works by a different mechanism. This may allow a smaller dose of the individual drugs than might be used if the drug were given individually.
We can let your veterinarian know that you are interested in our compounded Trichlormethiazide and Dexamethasone.
