Thiovas 12.5mg Tablet 10's belongs to a group of medicines known as diuretics (water pills which increase urine production) primarily used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure, and oedema (a build-up of fluid in the body). Hypertension or high blood pressure is a lifelong or chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the blood vessel (arteries wall) increases. The higher this blood pressure, the harder the heart has to pump. As a result, it leads to heart diseases, irregular heartbeat, and other complications. Oedema may occur in case of high blood pressure where fluids of the body get trapped in the tissues of the hands, arms, feet, ankles, and legs, leading to swelling.
Thiovas 12.5mg Tablet 10's contains Chlorthalidone, and it works by increasing the amount of urine passed out from the kidneys. It effectively reduces excess fluid levels in the body and treats oedema (swelling) associated with heart, liver, kidney, or lung disease. This, in turn, reduces the workload on the heart and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. So, it helps to lower high blood pressure, reducing the chances of heart attack or stroke.
In some cases, you may experience headaches, nausea, or dizziness. Most of these side effects of Thiovas 12.5mg Tablet 10's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Inform your doctor if you are suffering from kidney, liver, or heart disease or are diabetic.

Hypertension: It is a chronic condition when blood pressure is too high. This condition can lead to hardened arteries (blood vessels), decreasing the blood and oxygen flow to the heart. Blood pressure is the measurement of the force our heart uses to pump blood to all body parts. Raised blood pressure can cause chest pain (angina) and heart attack (when blood supply to the heart is blocked). Additionally, high blood pressure also causes brain damage (stroke) and kidney failure. High blood pressure can be diagnosed with the help of a blood pressure monitor or sphygmomanometer. Systolic pressure is the pressure when the heart pumps blood out. On the other hand, diastolic pressure is the pressure when your heart is at the resting stage between heartbeats. If your blood pressure is 140/90 mm of Hg, it means the systolic pressure is 140 mm of Hg and diastolic pressure is 90 mm of Hg. Ideal blood pressure should be between 90/60 mm of Hg and 120/80 mm of Hg.
Oedema: Also known as 'dropsy' or 'hydropsy', is a condition of fluid retention in the body characterized by swelling of the body's tissue, including ankles, feet and legs. It is usually caused by standing or sitting in the same position for too long, eating too much salty food, and being overweight. Oedema mainly affects the lymphatic system (including the circulatory and immune system) and organs like the tonsils, spleen, and thymus that maintain fluid balance and fight infections.
