Aldactazide Medication - Uses & Side Effects
Aldactazide® is a diuretic combination, which is also known as a water pill. Diuretics increase the amount of urine passed, which causes the body to lose water and salt. This drug is used to treat high blood pressure or water retention and swelling caused by conditions such as heart, kidney, and liver disease. Spironolactone does not cause your body to lose potassium the way that many diuretics do. Generic hydrochlorothiazide; spironolactone tablets are available.
Aldactazide is used in the treatment of high blood pressure and other conditions that require the elimination of excess fluid from the body. These conditions include congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disease. Aldactazide combines two diuretic drugs that help your body produce and eliminate more urine. Spironolactone, one of the ingredients, helps to minimize the potassium loss that can be caused by the hydrochlorothiazide component.
