Hydrodiuril is a so-called water pill, or, medically speaking, a thiazide diuretic which prevents your body from overabsorbing salt, decreasing any fluid retention (edema) through this. It is prescribed for edema treatment in patients who sufer from congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, or kidney disorders; also, Hydrodiuril is good for edema that is caused by taking steroids or estrogen-containing medical preparations. In some cases Hydrodiuril is used to treat increased blood pressure.
When being subject to Hydrodiuril therapy, remember that your doctor may wish to alter your dose and dosage shedule occasionally so that you can achieve the best results through the use of this drug. If any dose adjustment makes you feel negative compared to the previous dosage regimen, contact your healthcare provider at the first note. To make certain Hydrodiuril causes no harm to your body, you will have to donate blood for tests on a regular basis. If you are dehydrated, your doctor will wish to shedule appointments for checking your urine, too. There are also tests, the results of which can be influenced by a high level of hydrochlorothiazide (Hydrodiuril's active ingredient) in your system – the ones that are aimed at checking your thyroid. If another physician wants you to pass a test like this, inform them that you are taking Hydrodiuril. It is generally best to tell any new doctor who treats you that you are regularly taking a thiazide diuretic.
