Indapamide Drug Information

Medication Information: Indapamide is prescribed to treat high blood pressure. Although it belongs to a group of drugs called diuretics (which generally increase the kidneys' ability to make urine), at doses prescribed for high blood pressure, indapamide works by dilating blood vessels. By dilating blood vessels, it reduces the pressure inside the blood vessels and over time leads to a decrease in high blood pressure.

Indapamide is available as standard release tablets as well as modified release tablets. Both forms of the pill should be used once a day. The modified release tablet is indicated by letters such as "XL" or "SR" after the brand name. The modified release pill is released more slowly during the day than the standard release pill. Indapamide can be prescribed as a treatment for high blood pressure or it can be prescribed in combination with other medicines to lower blood pressure.

Indapamide drug interaction

Drug interactions may alter drug performance and increase the risk of serious side effects. Make a list of all the medicines (including prescription / over-the-counter and herbal medicines) you use and share them with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not change the dose of your medicine without consulting your doctor or stop taking the medicine.

Some medications that may interact with indapamide include digoxin, diphthilide, and lithium.

Check the labels on all your medicines (such as cough and cold medicines, diet supplements, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen and naproxen). Because they may contain ingredients that increase blood pressure or worsen heart failure. Talk to your pharmacist about taking this medicine.

Indapamide may interfere with certain laboratory tests (including parathyroid function) and cause erroneous results. Tell your doctor or nurse before taking the test that you have taken this medicine.

 

Tips to consider before taking indapamide

  • If you are pregnant, or if you are breast-feeding.
  • If you have liver or kidney problems.
  • If you have gout, diabetes, or lupus erythematosus (SLE). These conditions can be made worse by taking diuretics such as indapamide.
  • If your blood sodium or potassium levels are low or your blood calcium levels are high.
  • If your adrenal gland has a problem (Addison's disease).
  • If you have porphyria (a rare blood disorder).
  • If you are currently taking certain medications. These include all available medicines, whether prescribed or used by your doctor, such as herbal medicines and supplements.
  • If you have ever been allergic to any medication. Especially if you are allergic to sulfonamide drugs.
