Indapamide belongs to a group of medications called diuretics (or "water tablets") which prevents too much salt being absorbed by your body, and instead allows it to pass through in your urine. This can effectively help to lower blood pressure and treat hypertension.

For more information on the prescription medication patients should refer to the Indapamide patient information leaflet.

Your kidneys work very hard at filtering out water, salts and waste from your blood. Whilst most of the salts and water are reabsorbed into your blood, some are left with the waste products which forms urine. How diuretics work is by stopping the salts and water from being reabsorbed back into your blood, so that more is instead passed through into your urine. This will cause you to need to urinate more often.

By getting rid of these extra salts, it removes them from your bloodstream. This decreases the amount of work your heart has to do and so in doing that, will lower your blood sugar.

Indapamide can be taken by people aged 18 years and over.

It is important to note that Furosemide is not suitable for everyone. If you are going to take Furosemide, you must inform your doctor if you:

  • have had an allergic reaction any medication
  • are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • have liver disease
  • have kidney disease
  • have low levels of calcium, potassium or sodium in your blood
  • have gout
  • have diabetes
  • have an inflammatory condition called systemic lupus erythematosus
  • have heart rhythm problems
  • have underactive adrenal glands
  • have a rare blood disease called porphyria

Indapamide Tablets

It's usual to take it once a day, in the morning.

Do not take indapamide too late in the day (after 4pm) or at night, otherwise you may have to wake up to go to the toilet.

How to take Indapamide

Swallow the tablets whole with a drink of water. You can take indapamide with or without food.

What if I forget to take Indapamide?

If you usually take your dose in the morning, take your forgotten dose as soon as you remember, unless it's after 4pm. In this case, skip the missed dose and take your next dose as usual.

Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.

If you often forget doses, it may help to set an alarm to remind you. You could also ask your pharmacist for advice on other ways to help you remember to take your medicines.

Indapamide 2.5mg

The usual dose of Indapamide to treat:

  • heart failure is 2.5mg to 5mg once a day
  • high blood pressure is 2.5mg once a day - but if you're taking slow-release indapamide, you'll take a lower dose of 1.5mg

If you have trouble swallowing pills, ask your pharmacist or doctor for advice. Do not crush or chew slow-release tablets, as this stops them from working properly.

Accidentally taking an extra dose of indapamide is unlikely to harm you.

If you have accidentally taken too much, you may:

  • feel sick (nausea) or be sick (vomit)
  • feel very thirsty
  • have diarrhoea
  • feel faint, dizzy or weak
  • feel sleepy
  • have muscle cramps

If you take too much indapamide by accident, contact your doctor and have the packet with you.

In serious cases you can have fits (seizures) and may need emergency treatment in hospital.
