 1  For high blood pressure Indapamide My body began to weaken over a 6-day when I began to dry heave, then regurgitate in the evening of the 6th day. Went to Doctor on 7th day when he told me to discontinue use. Went home where I fainted, then "ambulanced" to ICU at hospital. Stayed for 4-days to IV sodium/potassium level from "104"to normal"135-145". I thought I was a goner. Learn from my ugly experience. They don't make "lozol" but they make the generic "indapamide". Still being prescribed. Beware. M 67 7 days

 5  Hypertension approx. 130/100 None. Great diuretic. I have taken Lozol (indapamide) 1.25mg since 1994. At one time it had reduced my BP to 120/72. Perfect! Now my BP has creeped back up. I've tried other meds (Lisinopril, Diovan) in addition to the Lozol, but have had trouble with side effects. Now I'm working on diet, vitamins, minerals (Mg & potassium), and sleep to bring down borderline BP. F 43 14 years
 1  High Blood Pressure Nausea, dizziness, tinnitus, insomnia, agitation, anxiety, thirst, flu-like symptoms, dehydration, confusion, depression, flushing, rash, swelling, night-sweats. I have taken this drug on and off for the last two years as a supplement to ACE treatment for high blood pressure and it really is a nasty add-on. Everytime my doctor convinces me to try it again I wonder why I have agreed. My view is only consider this drug as a last resort - it's not a good diuretic, it's not a good antihypertensive - it's just cheap and nasty. M 30 2 years
 1  High blood pressure dehydration, personality change, anxiety, reduced kidney function This drug caused me to be so dehyrated that my eyes and mouth were always dry no matter how much I drank liquids. I noticed that I would become easily upset and angry. My blood tests showed that it lowered my kidney function. I was also taking Toprol and Cozaar. The combination of drugs seem to have caused permanent kidney damage. F 64 2 years
 2  high blood pressure dreadful acid reflux ,nausea,Bathroom visits at night prevented sleep,general malaise taken at different times F 66 60 days

LOZOL  (INDAPAMIDE):  This medication is used to treat high blood pressure. Indapamide is also used to reduce extra fluid in the body (edema) caused by heart failure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Indapamide belongs to a class of drugs known as diuretics/"water pills." It works by causing you to make more urine. This helps your body get rid of extra salt and water. This can lessen symptoms such as shortness of breath or swelling in your ankles or feet.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
