Aquazide (Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets) used
Aquazide (Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets) are used to treat fluid retention (oedema) in various conditions, including congestive heart failure, kidney disorders, cirrhosis of the liver with ascites, which is liver disease that causes accumulation of fluid in the abdominal cavity, and as a side effect of corticosteroid medication or oestrogens. Oedema occurs when excess fluid accumulates in the interstitial spaces between cells or in body cavities and is not drained away. Aquazide (Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets) help remove excess fluid from the body tissues, such as around the feet and ankles, which can become very swollen, and also from the blood and for this reason they are often called water tablets. Aquazide (Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets) are also used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and can used be either alone or in combination with antihypertensive medication for high blood pressure.
Aquazide (Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets) work
Aquazide (Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets) contain hydrochlorothiazide, a thiazide diuretic with antihypertensive action that is used to remove excess fluid from interstitial spaces (spaces between cells) and from body cavities. Hydrochlorothiazide in Aquazide (Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets) acts directly on the distal convoluted tubule of the kidneys to promote the removal of salts and water from the blood, which increases urine volume and decreases blood volume. It works by inhibiting reabsorption of salts (sodium and chloride ions) back into the blood in the kidney tubules, and this action promotes excretion of salt along with water. There is also some loss of potassium and bicarbonate ions, which can counteract the effect of hyperkalaemia (high potassium levels) caused by some antihypertensive drugs. The action of hydrochlorothiazide in Aquazide (Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets) removes excess fluid from the tissues and thereby reduces oedema due to various conditions; it also reduces the resistance in peripheral blood vessels to reduce blood pressure. Aquazide (Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets) begin to work within 1-2 hours and its effect lasts for between 12-24 hours.
