Can this med be used for sleep problems such as sleep apnea/insominia?
HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention.
HCTZ treats fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, or kidney disorders, or edema caused by taking steroids or estrogen. HCTZ is also used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). It may be used alone or with other medicines.
