On this episode, I discuss indapamide pharmacology, adverse effects, drug interactions, and pharmacokinetics.
I discuss how indapamide differs from other thiazide diuretics. Particularly, I discuss indapamide compared to hydrochlorothiazide.
Frequent urination, hypokalemia, and dehydration are all possible risks with indapamide.
Pay attention to medications that can increase the risk for acute renal failure when added to indapamide. NSAIDs, ACEIs, ARBs, and other diuretics can increase this risk.
