Hydrochlorothiazide Pills

Many healthcare providers prescribe hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) for the treatment of high blood pressure or water retention. As a diuretic, this medication works to decrease blood volume (an effect that lowers blood pressure and helps with water retention) by increasing the amount of salt and water that the kidneys remove from the blood.
 
This medicine comes as two different types of pills: tablets and capsules. Both forms of hydrochlorothiazide are taken by mouth, typically once a day. Hydrochlorothiazide is currently available in both generic and brand-name forms (brand-name pills include Esidrix®, HydroDIURIL®, Microzide®, and Oretic®).
