Bendroflumethiazide affects your kidneys to increase the amount of water and salt you get out of your urine. Bendroflumethiazide reduces blood pressure by flushing out excess salt and fluid from your blood vessels.
Hypertension can be caused by many factors such as family history, a diet high in salt, or being overweight, or being inactive.
To prevent further complications such as stroke, heart attack, or blood clots, lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, drinking less, and increasing exercise are all good options.
You can swallow the tablets whole with water with or without food. It is best to take it in the morning, at the same time every day.
One 2.5mg tablet per day is the normal starting dose. Your doctor may increase this dose if necessary. If you are older, you may be given a lower dose. The dose will also differ if this medication is being used to treat fluid retention.
If you forget to take a dose and it is almost time for your next dose, you can skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dose.
You should not take more Bendroflumethiazide than you need. If this happens, you should immediately contact your doctor. Overdose symptoms include thirst, increased frequency and quantity of urination, and changes in the level of salts in the blood.
