Hydrochlorothiazide is a drug with a diuretic and saluretic action. It increases the volume of urine, produced by the body. This, in its turn, helps to get rid of swelling and excess fluid that occurs in case of kidneys failure. Hydrochlorothiazide aids lowering blood pressure, managing heart failure, and other conditions; it is often prescribed exactly with this purpose. Sometimes, it is also prescribed as a relieving medication for people with glaucoma.
Hydrochlorothiazide is also marketed as: Aquazide H, Microzide.
