hydroflumethiazide is a diuretic medication that belongs to the thiazide class of diuretics. Its primary action is to increase the excretion of sodium and water by the kidneys, which helps reduce fluid retention in the body. This leads to decreased blood pressure and relief from conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and edema (fluid retention).
The spectrum of hydroflumethiazide’s action is related to its diuretic effects and its ability to lower blood pressure. It is often used in the management of hypertension and may be prescribed alongside other antihypertensive medications as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
