What is chlorthalidone?
Chlorthalidone is a water pill indicated for use as a treatment for high blood pressure (hypertension), and fluid retention (edema) caused by various conditions. Chlorthalidone reduces the amount of water in the body by increasing urine flow, which can help lower blood pressure.
Chlorthalidone may be prescribed alone, or in conjunction with other medication as a treatment for high blood pressure. In addition to medication, your doctor may order certain lifestyle changes such as physical activity and dietary adjustments to lower blood pressure.
