Thalitone is a thiazide diuretic that helps in preventing the body from absorbing excess salt that can lead to fluid retention. Thalitone is used in treating fluid retention in people having kidney disorders and edema that results from too much estrogen or steroids, cirrhosis of the liver and congestive heart failure. Thalitone can also be used in treating high blood pressure. Thalitone works by reducing the ability of the kidney to hold on to water and salt and increasing the rate at which the kidney produces urine (diuresis).
