It is chemically designated as 6-chloro-3,4-dihydro-2H-1,2,4benzothiadiazine-7-sulfonamide 1,1-dioxide and has the following structural formula: Hydrochlorothiazide is a white or almost white, crystalline powder which is very slightly soluble in water, but dissolves in dilute solutions of alkali hydroxides. Each tablet for oral administration contains 25 mg or 50 mg hydrochlorothiazide. In addition, each tablet contains the following inactive ingredients: anhydrous lactose, dibasic calcium phosphate dihydrate, croscarmellose, ferric oxide orange shade, ferric oxide yellow shade and magnesium stearate.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

FDA Article Code: 34090-1

The mechanism of the antihypertensive effect of thiazides is unknown. Hydrochlorothiazide does not usually affect normal blood pressure.    Hydrochlorothiazide affects the distal renal tubular mechanism of electrolyte reabsorption. At maximal therapeutic dosage all thiazides are approximately equal in their diuretic efficacy.   Hydrochlorothiazide increases excretion of sodium and chloride in approximately equivalent amounts. Natriuresis may be accompanied by some loss of potassium and bicarbonate.   After oral use diuresis begins within 2 hours, peaks in about 4 hours and lasts about 6 to 12 hours.

Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets USP are indicated as adjunctive therapy in edema associated with congestive heart failure, hepatic cirrhosis, and corticosteroid and estrogen therapy.   Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets USP have also been found useful in edema due to various forms of renal dysfunction such as nephrotic syndrome, acute glomerulonephritis, and chronic renal failure.  Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets USP are indicated in the management of hypertension either as the sole therapeutic agent or to enhance the effectiveness of other antihypertensive drugs in the more severe forms of hypertension.

WARNINGS

displayName: WARNINGS SECTION
FDA Article Code: 34071-1

Use with caution in severe renal disease. In patients with renal disease, thiazides may precipitate azotemia. Cumulative effects of the drug may develop in patients with impaired renal function.   Thiazides should be used with caution in patients with impaired hepatic function or progressive liver disease, since minor alterations of fluid and electrolyte balance may precipitate hepatic coma.   Thiazides may add to or potentiate the action of other antihypertensive drugs. Sensitivity reactions may occur in patients with or without a history of allergy or bronchial asthma.   The possibility of exacerbation or activation of systemic lupus erythematosus has been reported.   Lithium generally should not be given with diuretics (see PRECAUTIONS, Drug Interactions).

OVERDOSAGE


id: d8f270b9-1597-4dfd-b796-c3a8940b86f4
displayName: OVERDOSAGE SECTION
FDA Article Code: 34088-5

The most common signs and symptoms observed are those caused by electrolyte depletion (hypokalemia, hypochloremia, hyponatremia) and dehydration resulting from excessive diuresis. If digitalis has also been administered, hypokalemia may accentuate cardiac arrhythmias. In the event of overdosage, symptomatic and supportive measures should be employed. Emesis should be induced or gastric lavage performed. Correct dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, hepatic coma and hypotension by established procedures. If required, give oxygen or artificial respiration for respiratory impairment. The degree to which hydrochlorothiazide is removed by hemodialysis has not been established. The oral LD50 of hydrochlorothiazide is greater than 10 g/kg in the mouse and rat.
