Natriuran review

Natriuran is a thiazide diuretic used to cure fluid retention (edema) caused by the body’s absorption of salt. It works by transferring excess water and salt into the urine through the kidneys. This medication can be used to treat or control hypertension, heart disease, kidney disorders, and side effects from taking steroids or estrogen. Popular brand names for this medication include Clorpres and Thaliton.

Patients unable to urinate should refrain from taking this medication, as there may be severe side effects for them. Tell your healthcare professional if you have asthma, kidney or liver disease, diabetes, renal dysfunction, lupus, or allergies to sulfa medications. Failure to tell them may result in allergic reactions, sensitivity reactions, and the worst-case scenario, hepatic coma.

Studies have not shown any adverse effects to unborn babies; however, breastfeeding women should talk with their healthcare professionals before taking Clorthalidone since some medications pass through the breast milk.

Natriuran is taken one or two times a day orally. However, if your healthcare professional prescribes otherwise, follow the prescription strictly. This medication should not be taken on an empty stomach, as this may result in extreme discomfort. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. Do not take more than the prescribed amount at one time. In case of overdose, seek medical attention immediately. Symptoms of an overdose include vomiting, nausea, muscle pain, and excessive weakness.

Medicines such as muscle relaxants, cough medicine, and sleeping pills should not be taken while you are taking Natriuran. If you must take any of these medications, talk with your healthcare professional first. Also avoid consuming alcoholic beverages as alcohol can worsen the potential side effects of the medication. Natriuran makes the skin more sensitive to UV rays, so avoid being in the sun too long or using tanning beds. Natriuran forces the body to get rid of water quicker, so stay well hydrated.

Healthcare professionals typically prescribe special diets to patients taking the medication, which are usually low in salt and sodium and high in potassium, all of which compensate for the body’s rapid water disposal.

The primary side effect of taking Natriuran is a significant increase in urination. After a few weeks, this should subside. Dizziness, muscle cramps, nausea, an upset stomach, vomiting, weakness, and hair loss are some known side effects, but are often very minimal. Immediately inform your healthcare professional if you experience any of these and they become quite severe. In case of numbness, bruising, excessive bleeding, difficulty breathing, or fever, see your healthcare professional immediately.

Have your blood and urine tested regularly to make sure there are no adverse long-term effects. The medication must be stored at room temperature in a dry location. Once past the expiration date, dispose of the medication immediately.
