You will need to answer a few questions about your health before completing purchase of this item.

  • Indapamide is a medication that is taken to treat hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Indapamide is a diuretic (water tablet) but also widens the blood vessels to lower the blood pressure
  • Indapamide is sometimes known by its brand name Natrilix
  • Indapamide can occasionally cause a skin rash, nausea (feeling sick) or cause you to feel dizzy, but these side effects are usually mild
  • It is important to read the patient leaflet for a full list of side effects and cautions.

Although indapamide is a diuretic (a “water tablet” used to rid the body of excess fluid), it can also be prescribed to treat high blood pressure. Indapamide causes the blood vessels to widen. This reduces the pressure of the blood within them, lowering the overall blood pressure. This in turn reduces the strain on the heart, as it does not have to work so hard to pump blood around the body.

Sometimes you may be prescribed another medication for high blood pressure to take alongside indapamide. 

Slow release preparations of indapamide are also available. These tablets release indapamide slowly into the body which may help to keep your blood pressure stable over a longer period.

Indapamide is a tablet that is usually taken once in the morning. It should be swallowed with some water, and can be taken with or without food.

When treating high blood pressure, the usual dose of indapamide is 2.5mg every morning. It can take several months for indapamide to be fully effective, and so it is unusual to increase the dose. If your blood pressure remains high despite taking 2.5mg of indapamide, another type of blood pressure medication may be added in.

Like all medications, indapamide can have some side effects. The most common side effect is a rash or increased sensitivity to sun light. If this occurs, you should ensure you wear adequate sunscreen. You should also speak to your doctor as another medication may better suit you.

Less commonly, some people may experience one of the following side effects:

  • Nausea or vomiting (feeling sick or being sick)
  • Diarrhoea
  • Feeling dizzy on standing – it is best to stand up slowly if this occurs.

These side effects are likely to resolve, but if they are troublesome or persist you should speak to your doctor for further advice.

If you have a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) including breathlessness, lip or tongue swelling, call 999 immediately.

Indapamide may not be suitable for everyone. You should tell your doctor if you:

  • Have liver disease
  • Have kidney disease or renal impairment
  • Have diabetes
  • Have low sodium or potassium on blood testing
  • Have high calcium or hyperparathyroidism
  • Get attacks of gout
  • Are an athlete (indapamide may give a positive reaction in doping tests)
  • Are pregnant, trying to conceive, or breastfeeding.

Some medications can interact with indapamide. You may be advised that indapamide will not suit you if you already take:

  • Lithium
  • Drugs for an irregular heartbeat or rhythm
  • Certain anti-psychotic medications
  • Other medications for high blood pressure
  • Some anti-inflammatory medications
  • Steroids
  • Laxatives
  • Baclofen
  • Metformin
  • Some anti-depressant medications
  • Ciclosporin
  • Tacrolimus.

Because indapamide may not suit everyone, we will complete a Consultation with you including a health questionnaire. This will ensure that the medication will be suitable for you.

A qualified prescriber will review your current medications, including any herbal remedies or supplements, to ensure that indapamide will not interact with them. 

Once prescribed, indapamide will be ordered on your behalf via electronic prescription, allowing you to pick the medication up at your convenience.
