REVIEW Hydrochlorothiazide, (also knowns as HCTZ, HCT, HZT and water pill), is a thiazide diuretic drug that acts by inhibiting the kidneys'' ability to retain or rebsorb water and electrolytes. This results in increased excretion of water and electrolytes, including sodium, potassium, chloride, and magnesium. Overall this reduces the volume of the blood, decreasing blood return to the heart and thus cardiac output and, by other mechanisms, is believed to lower peripheral vascular resistance. It is used in the treatment of several disorders including edema, hypertension, diabetes insipidus, and hypoparathyroidism.
