Indapamide belongs to the group of medicines known as diuretics. It is commonly used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension).
High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. If it continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. High blood pressure may also increase the risk of heart attacks. These problems may be less likely to occur if blood pressure is controlled.
Indapamide is also used to help reduce the amount of water in the body by increasing the flow of urine.
Indapamide is available only with your doctor's prescription.
