Hydrochlorothiazide belongs to a class of drugs known as diuretics/”water pills.” It works by causing you to make more urine. This helps your body get rid of extra salt and water.

This medicine is also used to treat high blood pressure and reduces extra fluid in the body (edema) caused by conditions such as kidney disease, liver disease and heart failure. 

This drug may affect your body sugar, decrease potassium levels in the body, make you more sensitive to the sun and may cause a loss of too much body water (dehydration) and salt/minerals.
