What is Divret (Indapamide) used for?
Divret (Indapamide) is an oral diuretic prescribed to treat patients suffering from hypertension. It operates by preventing sodium absorption in the kidneys to draw excess medication out of the body to be eliminated through urination. This action dilates the blood vessels allowing easier blood flow and reducing the amount of work required by the heart to pump the blood. Your doctor may prescribe it along with other medications or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.

These should be swallowed whole and unaltered along with a large glass water. The doses may be taken with or without food, but a snack or meal is suggested prior to use if you experience nausea. Never split, chew, or crush the tablets before use to avoid destroying or altering the effects of their contents.
