Lozol is used to treat high blood pressure and to reduce extra salt and fluid in the body (edema) by increasing the amount of salt and water that the kidneys remove from the blood.
2,5 mg Lozol
Lozol is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention. It is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), water retention (edema) due to congestive heart failure (CHF). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Decreasing extra salt and fluid in the body helps to decrease swelling and breathing problems from congestive heart failure and increases your ability to exercise.
Take Lozol exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The recommended starting dose for high blood pressure is 1.25 mg once daily. Your doctor may increase your dose if necessary, up to a maximum of 5 mg per day. The recommended starting dose for water retention due to congestive heart failure is 2.5 mg once daily. If necessary, your doctor may increase your dose up to a maximum of 5 mg once daily. Take this medication by mouth with or without food. Because Lozol increases urination, it is best to take it in the morning.
Before taking Lozol you should talk with your doctor if you have liver disease, kidney disease, kidney failure, diabetes, gout, fluid or electrolyte problems, any allergies. This drug may make you dizzy. Do not drive or perform tasks that require alertness. Limit alcoholic beverages. Avoid becoming overheated or dehydrated.
You should not take Lozol if you are allergic to it, indapamide, or any inactive component of this medication, to sulfonamides, or if you have anuria. Let your doctor know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
