Arifon Retard is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention.

Arifon Retard treats fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure. This medication is also used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension).

Arifon Retard may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Arifon Retard is an antihypertensive and a diuretic. It contains both a polar sulfamoyl chlorobenzamide moiety and a lipid- soluble methylindoline moiety. Arifon Retard bears a structural similarity to the triazide diuretics which are known to decrease vascular smooth muscle reactivity. However, it differs chemically from the thiazides in that it does not possess the thiazide ring system and contains only one sulfonamide group. Arifon Retard appears to cause vasodilation, probably by inhibiting the passage of calcium and other ions (sodium, potassium) across membranes. This same effect may cause hypokalcemia in susceptible individuals. Arifon Retard has also been shown to cause uterine myometrial relaxation in experimental animals. Overall, Arifon Retard has an extra-renal antihypertensive action resulting in a decrease in vascular hyperreactivity and a reduction in total peripheral and arteriolar resistance.

Arifon Retard is used to treat water retention caused by heart failure, kidney or liver disease. Water retention may be noticed as swelling of the feet, ankles, lower leg and hands. For this reason, Arifon Retard is commonly called a "water pill". Arifon Retard also helps to keep your blood pressure under control.
