What is methyclothiazide?

USES: This medication is used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Methyclothiazide is a "water pill" (diuretic) that causes your body to get rid of extra salt and water. This increases the amount of urine you make. This medication also reduces extra fluid in the body (edema) caused by conditions such as congestive heart failure, liver disease, and kidney disease. Getting rid of extra water helps to reduce fluid in the lungs so that you can breathe easier. It also helps to decrease swelling of the arms, legs, and stomach/abdomen.

How to take methyclothiazide

HOW TO USE: Take this medication by mouth with or without food, usually once daily or as directed by your doctor. It is best to avoid taking this medication within 4 hours of your bedtime to avoid having to get up to urinate. Consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about your dosing schedule. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy. The manufacturer recommends that you do not take more than 10 milligrams as a single daily dose to treat edema or more than 5 milligrams daily to treat high blood pressure. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day or as prescribed. Do not increase your dose, skip doses, or stop taking this medication unless directed by your doctor. It is important to continue taking this medication even if you feel well. Most people with high blood pressure do not feel sick. For the treatment of high blood pressure, it may take up to several weeks before the full benefit of this drug takes effect. Cholestyramine and colestipol can decrease the absorption of this medication by your body. If you are taking either of these drugs, separate them from methyclothiazide by at least 4 hours. Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens (for example if swelling increases, your routine blood pressure readings increase).



What if I miss a dose of methyclothiazide?

MISSED DOSE: If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.

Storing methyclothiazide

STORAGE: Store in a tightly closed container at room temperature between 59-86 degrees F (15-30 degrees C) away from light and moisture. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep all medicines away from children and pets. Do not flush medications down the toilet or pour them into a drain unless instructed to do so.
