Microzide is a diuretic, or water pill, used to treat high blood pressure. It greatly increases the amount of water flushed out of the body through the kidneys and consequently, the urine. Its primary mechanism of action is in the kidney, where it reduces sodium reabsorption. This leads to more water being flushed from the body, which leads to less water in the blood and thus lower blood pressure.
