Zaroxolyn , also known as metolazone, is a thiazide diuretic which is used in the treatment of high blood pressure and swelling as a result of excess body water.
This type of medication works by causing the kidneys to get rid of unwanted water and salt from the body by converting it into the urine.
Zaroxolyn is taken orally in the form of tablets, usually once a day, in the morning, as prescribed by your doctor.
Common side effects associated users may experience when taking this medication include muscle weakness, cramps, dizziness, thirst, upset stomach, stomach pain, vomiting and headaches. If the side effects become severe, contact your doctor or other medical professional for assistance.
Zaroxolyn may occasionally be prescribed for other purposes, as directed by your doctor.
