GENERIC NAME: INDAPAMIDE - ORAL (in-DAP-a-mide)
BRAND NAME(S): Lozol
USES: This medication is used to treat high blood pressure. Indapamide is also used to reduce extra salt and fluid in the body (edema) caused by a certain heart problem (congestive heart failure). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Decreasing extra salt and fluid in the body helps to decrease swelling and breathing problems from congestive heart failure and increases your ability to exercise.Indapamide is a "water pill" (diuretic) that increases the amount of urine you make. Getting rid of extra water and salt may help to relax the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily. These effects help to lower blood pressure and decrease the amount of work the heart must do to pump blood.
