Indapamide is a thiazide-like diuretic drug that is used to treat high blood pressure as well as edema caused by congestive heart failure. In a HYVET trial, it was established that Indapamide can be used to reduce stroke as well as death in people aged more than 80 years who are taking medications meant to control high blood pressure.
Indapamide works by reducing additional salt and fluid in the body. Indapamide helps lessen the swelling in the body and reduces breathing problems brought about by congestive heart failure. The mechanism through which Indapamide works also helps increase the patient’s ability to exercise.
