Lozide (Indapamide) is used to treat fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure. Lozide can also be used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lozide belongs to a class of medications called thiazide diuretic (water pill). For the treatment of edema, Lozide works by blocking sodium from being reabsorbed from your urine and into your blood, causing more sodium and water to be secreted from your body. For the treatment of hypertension, it also helps the muscles around the blood vessels throughout your body to relax, allowing the blood to circulate more easily, and lowering the pressure of the blood.
Canadian Pharmacy King currently offers the brand Lozide from Canada by Servier in the dosages of 1.25 mg and 2.5 mg tablets. The generic version is not available at this time.
Common side effects of Lozide may include dizziness, weakness, tiredness, back pain, muscle cramps, feeling anxious or agitated, headache, or runny nose.
