Hygroton (Chlorthalidone)

Drug:Chlorthalidone Tablet
Dosage:50 mg
Hygroton (Chlorthalidone) is used to treat high blood pressure, also called hypertension. Hygroton helps to lower your blood pressure. It also helps to relax the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily. Hygroton is also used to treat fluid buildup caused by heart, liver or kidney problems. Hygroton belongs to a group of medicines called diuretics commonly called fluid or water pills which help to reduce the amount of salt and water in the body by acting on the kidneys to increase the flow of urine. Hygroton is also used to treat fluid retention in premenstrual syndrome, only if the gain in weight is the main problem reported. Hygroton is also used to treat heart failure and for the prevention of formation of kidney stones in patients with increased levels of calcium in the urine. Take the tablets during a meal with a full glass of water. If you take only one dose of Hygroton each day, take it in the morning unless your doctor tells you otherwise. Diuretic medicines tend to increase the amount of urine you pass. It is best to take the last dose of medicine no later than 6 p.m. so that you will not have to get up during the night to urinate. Continue taking Hygroton for as long as your doctor tells you to. This medicine helps to control your symptoms but it does not cure your condition.
