Inderide is a prescription medicine used to treat high blood pressure. It is a combination drug, containing both propranolol, which lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and hydrochlorothiazide, which reduces blood volume. It comes in tablet form and is typically taken once or twice a day. Some common side effects include dizziness, headaches, and nausea.
What Is Inderide?Inderide® (propranolol/HCTZ) is a combination medication used in the treatment of high blood pressure, known medically as hypertension. It combines two high blood pressure medications: propranolol (Inderal®) and hydrochlorothiazide (Microzide®, Oretic®), or HCTZ for short.
Who Makes This Medication?Inderide was originally made by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, Inc., for Akrimax Pharmaceuticals, LLC. However, Wyeth stopped making the medication and brand-name Inderide is no longer available. Generic versions are still available and are manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals.
How Does Inderide Work?Because Inderide combines two blood pressure drugs, it works in two different ways to lower blood pressure.
- Heart rate
- Blood pressure
- The force with which the heart pumps blood.
