Hychlorzide 12.5
Hydrochlorothiazide is a medication that is used to treat high blood pressure and edema (fluid retention). It works by increasing the amount of urine produced by the kidneys, which helps to reduce excess fluid in the body and lower blood pressure.

The typical starting dose of hydrochlorothiazide for adults is 12.5 mg to 25 mg taken orally once daily, usually in the morning. The dose may be increased gradually under the guidance of a healthcare provider if needed to achieve the desired blood pressure or fluid balance goals.

Hydrochlorothiazide should be taken with a full glass of water and can be taken with or without food. It is important to take this medication regularly as prescribed to get the full benefit of the medication. It is also important to continue taking this medication even if you feel well.

As with any medication, there may be side effects associated with the use of hydrochlorothiazide. Common side effects include increased urination, dizziness, lightheadedness, and dry mouth. Rare but serious side effects may include severe allergic reactions, kidney problems, and low levels of sodium or potassium in the blood. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects, or if you have any concerns about taking this medication, you should speak to your healthcare provider.
