Are lozol and zaroxolyn (metolazone) prescribed a lot?

Are lozol and zaroxolyn (metolazone) prescribed a lot?

Not unusually: Both are relatively frequently used medications for diuresis. However, they belong to the mild diuretics category unless combined with other diuretics. Zaroxylyn in particular has the claim of fame of being effective if added to Furosemide in patients with resistant diuresis with chf. By itself, it is used infrequently and other cheaper thiazides (same family) do the same effect e.g. Hctz (hydrochlorothiazide). ...Read more

Will using lozol help get rid of water?

Will using lozol help get rid of water?

Yes, but stop salt: No water pill will get the job done if the patient does not stop excess fluid and salt intake. Lozol and other water pills are like the plunger that you use for stopped up sink.

Will using lozol help get rid of my water weight?

Minimally: lozol is a mild diuretic but good anti hypertensive medication. Best way to diminish "water weight" is diminish the salt intake. If you truly need to get rid of fluids, there are stronger diuretics that are used for heart failure or other reasons to keep fluids. ALL OF THEM require very careful doctor supervision. Hard to answer without knowing more about the reason behind the question. ...Read more

Will using lozol help get rid of water retention?

Yes but,: Water pills only do so much. The patient does the most important job; salt and fluid restriction. Beware of salt in processed food and in bread (recent data).

Why would an endocrinologist not prescribe indapamide with my atenolol?

Why would an endocrinologist not prescribe indapamide with my atenolol?

Need more info: It's hard to answer the question without knowing what you're treating. If hyperthyroidism is the underlying problem, then beta blocker therapy (i.e., atenolol) is often sufficient, and diuretics (e.g., indapamide) are usually unnecessary. These types of meds are often prescribed together in congestive heart failure, but they don't have to be. Discuss your concerns with your doctor. ...Read more
