Diuretic

Diuretics, sometimes called water pills, help rid your body of salt (sodium) and water. Most of them help your kidneys release more sodium into your urine. The sodium takes with it water from your blood, decreasing the amount of fluid flowing through your veins and arteries. This reduces blood pressure. Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) is one of the most commonly prescribed diuretic medicines.
