  ►    Mechanism of Drug Drug Interaction :  Many of the interactions of hydrochlorothiazide and other thiazides are due to their effects on fluid and electrolyte balance. Diuretic-induced hypokalaemia may enhance the toxicity of digitalis glycosides and may also increase the risk of arrhythmias with drugs that prolong the QT interval, such as astemizole, terfenadine, halofantrine, pimozide, and sotalol. Thiazides may enhance the neuromuscular blocking action of competitive neuromuscular blockers, such as atracurium, probably by their hypokalaemic effect. The potassium- depleting effect of diuretics may be enhanced by corticosteroids, corticotropin, beta2 agonists such as salbutamol, carbenoxolone, amphotericin B, or reboxetine. Diuretics may enhance the effect of other antihypertensives, particularly the first-dose hypotension that occurs with alpha blockers or ACE inhibitors. Orthostatic hypotension associated with diuretics may be enhanced by alcohol, barbiturates, or opioids. The antihypertensive effects of diuretics may be antagonised by drugs that cause fluid retention, such as corticosteroids, NSAIDs, or carbenoxolone; diuretics may enhance the nephrotoxicity of NSAIDs. Thiazides have been reported to diminish the response to pressor amines, such as noradrenaline, but the clinical significance of this effect is uncertain. Thiazides should not usually be used with lithium since the association may lead to toxic blood concentrations of lithium. Other drugs for which increased toxicity has been reported when given with thiazides include allopurinol and tetracyclines. Thiazides may alter the requirements for hypoglycaemics in diabetic patients. torasemide may enhance the nephrotoxicity of cephalosporin antibacterials such as cefalotin and can enhance the ototoxicity of aminoglycoside antibacterials and other ototoxic drugs.,

►  Contraindication : Existing fluid and electrolyte disturbances, Severe hepatic impairment, Addison’s disease , severe renal impairment, Anuria, preexisting hypercalcaemia, Pre-comatose states associated with hepatic cirrhosis, It should be used with care in patients with prostatic hyperplasia or impairment of micturition since it can precipitate acute urinary retention, It should be used with caution during pregnancy and breast feeding since it crosses the placenta and also appears in breast milk.,

  ►  Mechanism of Action :   Inhibit sodium reabsorption by reversibly and competitively inhibiting sodium- potassium chloride co transporter NKCC2 in apical (luminal) membrane of cells in thick ascending limb of loop of henle; also reduce or abolish the lumen positive transepithelial potential difference.,
