CHLORTHALIDONE 50MG (100 TABLETS)

Generic Name: chlorthalidone
Drug class: Thiazide diuretics


WHAT IS THE DOSAGE OF THIS MEDICATION?

Chlorthalidone is available in the strength of 50 mg tablets.



WHAT IS THIS MEDICATION USED FOR?

Chlorthalidone belongs to the group of medications called diuretics (water pill) and is used to treat fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, kidney diseases, or edema caused by taking steroids or estrogen. This medication is also indicated to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent damage to the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure.

Chlorthalidone treats fluid retention and high blood pressure by preventing water absorption from the kidneys through inhibition of the Na+/Cl− symporter in the distal convoluted tubule cells in the kidney. This causes the kidneys to get rid of unneeded water and salt from the body in the urine.

The usual recommended dose of chlorthalidone is 25 mg to 100 mg once daily or in divided doses.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones given here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store this medication at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children. Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
