Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) and Diuretics

Written by ColleenO.

Known commonly as “water pills,” diuretics help promote excretion of water and sodium from the body, reducing the amount of work the heart has to perform.

Common diuretics include:

  • Hydrochlorothiazide (Hydrodiuril)
  • Chlorothiazide (Diuril)
  • Metolazone (Zaroxolyn)
  • Furosemide (Lasix)
  • Bumetanide (Bumex)
  • Triamterene (Dyrenium)
  • Spironolactone (Aldactone)
  • Torsemide
  • Indapamide
  • Polythiazide
  • Amiloride
  • Combination agents (Dyazide)
