What is Aquazide 12.5mg?

Aquazide 12.5mg is a diuretic medication that helps to treat hypertension. This drug decreases excess fluid levels in your body and treats edema linked with kidney, heart, liver, or lung disease.

Aquazide contains hydrochlorothiazide as its active ingredient and belongs to the class of drugs known as diuretics. Doctors often recommend this medication to treat high blood pressure, oedema, and heart failure.

Diuretics are sometimes known as water pills as they help you to urinate more. This medication is also sometimes used to assist you to urinate when your kidneys are not properly working.

High blood pressure or hypertension is a medical condition in which the force applied by your blood against the artery wall is very high. Remember the higher the blood pressure is, the harder your heart needs to pump.

This further leads to irregular heartbeat, heart disease as well as other complications. In case of high blood pressure, you can suffer from edema.

High blood pressure occurs when fluids of your body get trapped inside the tissues of your ankles, hands, arms, feet, and legs.

How does Aquazide 12.5mg work?

Aquazide tablet works by rising the amount of urine that is passed out from your kidneys. This medication decreases excess fluid levels in your body effectively and treats edema linked with lung, heart, kidney, or liver disease.

In this way, the workload on your heart is decreased and the heart starts pumping blood throughout your body efficiently. Therefore, high blood pressure is decreased and the chances of experiencing a heart attack or stroke are reduced.
