Lozide is a brand name diuretic drug that contains the generic medication called indapamide. Otherwise known as “water pills”, diuretics remove excess water from the body in order to treat mild to moderate high blood pressure.
Doctors may prescribe diuretics as a first-line treatment for hypertension. If left untreated, high blood pressure can lead to heart disease and stroke.
Lozide works by causing the kidneys to filter unneeded water and salt from the body into the urine, thereby lowering the pressure in the blood vessels.
The usual dose is 1.25 mg tablet per day with a maximum dose of 2.5 mg per day. This medication is taken orally. Swallow the tablet whole with water at about the same time each day in the morning.
These may not be all the side effects of Lozide 2.5mg.
Do not take this medication if you have low blood potassium levels, severe kidney disease, severe liver disease, heart failure or if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
Before taking this medication, talk to your doctor if you have heart rhythm problems, hyperthyroidism, lupus, gout or heart disease. Let your doctor know if you think you are malnourished or dehydrated.
Keep out of reach and sight of children. Store at room temperature (15°C to 30°C). Do not use after the expiry date stated on the carton or blister pack.
Blood pressure is the measure of how hard your blood is pushing against the walls of your arteries. Generally, high blood pressure (hypertension) means a reading of 140 systolic or 90 diastolic or higher. Sometimes called “the silent killer”, many people do not feel any symptoms, but if left untreated, high blood pressure can cause damage and lead to serious conditions like heart disease, stroke or kidney failure. Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Factors that contribute to high blood pressure are age, diet, lack of exercise and stress.
