Disothiazide is a thiazide diuretic. It decreases the amount of water in the body by increasing urine production. Disothiazide is used to treat edema, or fluid retention, that is caused by cirrhosis of the liver, kidney disease, congestive heart failure, or after treatment with steroids or hormones. Disothiazide is used in the treatment of hypertension, or high blood pressure. By controlling blood pressure, it can also decrease the risk of heart attacks.
Possible side effects include decreased kidney function, high blood sugar, gout, electrolyte imbalances feeling lightheaded upon standing. Low blood potassium is common, while low blood sodium is less common.
Disothiazide should not be used in patients with anuria or severe renal impairment as it is ineffective in patients with a creatinine clearance of 30 mL/min or less. Disothiazide should not be given to patients with Addison's disease. Thiazide can decrease the excretion of calcium in urine and cause mild hypercalcemia. Do not administer to a patient with pre-existing hypercalcemia.
