What is Indapamide?
Indapamide is a diuretic tablet. The active substance indapamide ensures that more moisture is eliminated in the form of urine. This way you retain less moisture, your blood pressure lowers and your heart needs to pump less. You can order Indapamide online through the pharmacies working with Dokteronline.com.
What is this medication used for?
Doctors start a treatment with Indapamide against hypertension and/or heart failure. Because you urinate more with this medication, the body retains less moisture. This helps to lower blood pressure and also gives the heart more rest. The risk of cardiovascular disease is therefore reduced. Symptoms such as swollen ankles or legs as well as shortness of breath are reduced.
How to use Indapamide?
Swallow Indapamide without chewing with enough water. Take the medicine preferably in the morning. This way it is less likely that you have to urinate often at night. It can take a while before the product has the desired effect. Indapamide often only works optimally after four months. Continue taking the medication until that time. A doctor will determine how long you should keep taking this medicine.
