Chlorthalidone Drug Information
Healthcare providers can prescribe chlorthalidone (Thalitone®) for the treatment of either high blood pressure or edema (fluid retention) associated with different health conditions. This medicine comes in tablet form and is typically taken once a day. As a diuretic, it works by increasing the amount of salt and water the kidneys remove from the blood.
Prior to beginning treatment with chlorthalidone, inform your healthcare provider about any other drugs you are taking and any other medical conditions you have. This product can react with certain other medications and supplements, and some people should not take it, so your healthcare provider needs this information to make sure this is the right treatment for you.
