Hydrochlorothiazide uses and description

Sort by popularity
Hydrochlorothiazide - Used for: Treating high blood pressure. It is also used to treat fluid buildup in the body caused by certain conditions (eg, heart failure, liver cirrhosis, kidney problems) or medicines (eg, corticosteroids, estrogen). It may be used alone or with other medicines. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic. It works by helping the kidneys to remove fluid from the body.

Pharmacology: Enhances excretion of sodium, chloride, and water by interfering with transport of sodium ions across renal tubular epithelium.

Indication: Adjunctive therapy for edema associated with CHF, hepatic cirrhosis, renal function impairment, and corticosteroid and estrogen therapy; treatment of hypertension.

Unlabeled Uses

Therapy for nephrogenic diabetes insipidus.

Thiazides such as Hydrochlorothiazide promote water loss from the body (diuretics). They inhibit Na reabsorption from the distal convoluted tubules in the kidneys. Thiazides also cause loss of potassium and an increase in serum uric acid. Thiazides are often used to treat hypertension, but their hypotensive effects are not necessarily due to their diuretic activity. Thiazides have been shown to prevent hypertension-related morbidity and mortality although the mechanism is not fully understood. Thiazides cause vasodilation by activating calcium-activated potassium channels (large conductance) in vascular smooth muscles and inhibiting various carbonic anhydrases in vascular tissue.

Hydrochlorothiazide (N.C.P.) helps to keep your blood pressure under control. It is also used to treat water retention caused by heart or kidney disease. Water retention may be noticed as swelling of the feet, ankles, lower leg and hands. For this reason, it is commonly known as a "water pill".
