Description

What Is Hydrochlorothiazide Used For 

Hydrochlorothiazide medication is used to lower high blood pressure to help prevent stroke, heart attack, and kidney problems. This medication can be used alone or be combined with other blood pressure medicines.  It can also be used in edema or fluid retention where excess fluids are trapped in the tissues of the body due to kidney disease, heart failure, or liver disease.  

Taking this medicine can lessen edema symptoms such as swelling in the ankles or feet and shortness of breath. Before taking this medication, disclose to your doctor your medical history, especially diabetes, gout, kidney disease, liver disease, lupus, or skin cancer. 

How Does Hydrochlorothiazide Work 

This medication is a generic drug that belongs to the class of diuretics (water pills); it works by getting rid of the excess salt and water in the body by increasing the production of urine. Hydrochlorothiazide mechanism of action is said to be inhibiting sodium chloride transport in the distal convoluted tubule to enable more sodium in the kidney accompanied with fluid. 

Thiazide diuretics act by increasing sodium excretion in the urine. As sodium excretes water from the circulation, it reduces the quantity of fluid flowing through the blood vessels and lowers blood pressure.
