Triamterene alone is a POTASSIUM SPARING type diuretic...it alone should NOT cause you low POTASSIUM...Do you take a combination such as Triamterene with HCTZ?
Do you take other meds?
I would advise follow up with your doctor on the low POTASSIUM.
I think a Rx for POTASSIUM chloride supplement plus added endocrinology tests would be in order -- checking aldosterone level for example ..check renal function as to sodium and potassium excretion...
