    just curious if anyone has any experience with this and how much is standard? I've used dyazide which I know this is one of the chemicals in it. Just not sure if it's enough to do the trick and if I need to add some type of potassium supplement with it. I've read that dyazide also contains Triamterene which is more potassium sparing so just want to be safe before jumping into it. I believe what I have is 10mg.

    HCTZ is still a relatively mild diuretic even when not paired with Triamterene. I have done 10mg Thurs pm with 1/2 water ration, 10mg Friday am, dinner and pm (30mg total for Fri) cutting water at 5pm and needed nothing more on show day. That said you gotta see how you're going to react and it also depends on how dry you are when you started. I'll sip a little pedialyte on show day if I'm getting crampy.
