Aquazide 25 Mg Tablet is a diuretic which lowers blood pressure by removing extra water and certain electrolytes from the body. Over time it also relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow.
Aquazide 25 Mg contain hydrochlorothiazide, a thiazide diuretic with antihypertensive action that is used to remove excess fluid from interstitial spaces (spaces between cells) and from body cavities.
Hydrochlorothiazide in Aquazide 25 Mg acts directly on the distal convoluted tubule of the kidneys to promote the removal of salts and water from the blood, which increases urine volume and decreases blood volume. It works by inhibiting reabsorption of salts (sodium and chloride ions) back into the blood in the kidney tubules, and this action promotes excretion of salt along with water.
