Oedema and high blood pressure Metolazone Metoral

Uses
Metoral (Metolazone) is widely prescribed to reduce blood pressure in patients affected by hypertension. It achieves this by increasing the amount of urine which is produced by the kidneys. Removal of unneeded water leads to a reduction in blood pressure. Another use for this drug is treating fluid retention occurring in the lungs (pulmonary oedema) or in the legs. This can sometime occur as a result of liver cirrhosis, kidney failure or heart failure.

Dosage and Administration
Dosage regimens for patients taking Metoral (Metolazone) often vary, and will be decided upon by the prescribing doctor. Patients treating high blood pressure are sometimes told to take 2.5mg per day, and those who are using this medicine to treat oedema are often directed to take 5mg per day. Many patients prefer to take their dosage in the morning. This is because an increase in urination can occur after taking this drug, and taking it too soon before bed time may result in night time urination and sleep disturbances.

Patients taking Metoral (Metolazone) may experience side effects, and some symptoms are listed here:

  • Blurred vision
  • Hair thinning or loss
  • Polyuria (increased urination)
  • Cramps affecting the muscles
  • Consuming less food than usual

Serious side effects require immediate medical attention. These can include reduced urination, dehydration, hyponatraemia, hypokalaemia and fever. However, the list of side effects given here is not complete, and other side effects may also occur.

Precautions
Taking this medicine may affect the blood sugar levels of diabetic patients. Regular testing of blood sugar is required while taking this drug. In addition to this, the prescribing doctor may need to adjust the diet and anti-diabetes medicine of diabetic patients taking this drug.

Your doctor may prescribe potassium supplements or tell you to eat a diet which contains more potassium, to compensate for the reduced level of potassium in your blood which may occur as a result of taking this medicine.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
