Unit Price: ৳ 5.05 (3 x 14: ৳ 212.10)


Indapa-SR is indicated in the treatment of essential hypertension . It is effective in treating hypertension in patients with renal function impairment, although its diuretic effect is reduced. Indapa-SR is also indicated for the treatment of salt and fluid retention associated with congestive heart failure.


Indapamide is a diuretic antihypertensive. It appears to cause vasodilation, probably by inhibiting the passage of calcium and other ions (sodium, potassium) across membranes. It has an extra-renal antihypertensive action resulting in a decrease in vascular hyperreactivity and a reduction in total peripheral and arteriolar resistance.

Dosage & Administration

One tablet daily preferably in the morning. In more sever case Indapamide can be combine with other categories of anti-hypertensive agent. The safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients have not been established


Other antihypertensive: Indapa-SR may add to or potentiate the action of other antihypertensive drugs.

Norepinephrine: Indapa-SR like thiazides, may decrease arterial responsiveness to norepinephrine.

Lithium: In general, diuretics should not be given concomitantly with lithium because they reduce its renal clearance and add a high risk of lithium toxicity.
