How Should This Medication Be Stored?

Chlorthalidone should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be kept in an airtight container.
Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your chlorthalidone as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Do not take a double dose.

Available Strengths

Chlorthalidone tablets are available in the following strengths:
  • Chlorthalidone 25 mg
  • Chlorthalidone 50 mg
  • Chlorthalidone 100 mg.
Brand-name Thalitone comes in one strength: Thalitone 15 mg tablets. Technically, Thalitone is not equivalent to the generic versions of chlorthalidone. This medication is formulated differently and is absorbed into the body better than generic chlorthalidone is -- essentially making Thalitone more potent (which is why it comes in a lower strength).
