My doctor told me that Hydrodiuril has been found useful in edema due to various forms of renal dysfunction. Since I have edema because of acute glomerulonephritis, he recommended me to use this drug. However, I have a friend who gets this Hydrodiuril prescribed for management of hypertension. Now I am worried if this is appropriate medicine for me or my doctor made mistake. Can you tell me more about Hydrodiuril, and its side effects?
