Question: My dad has been taking Indapamide for cholestorol treatment and has got pains in his sides? Anyone got ideas? For those of you familiar with the drug and have taken it, do you recognise the side effect mentioned above? Thanks

Answer: Indapamide is used to treat high blood pressure and NOT chloestorol. It works like a diuretic ( fluid tablet ) and cause imbalances of elctrolytes in the body. This imbalance can leed to cramping ( mainly due to magnesium deficiency ). But if the pain persist, you should tell him to go back to the doctor. If your dad is taking a cholestrol tablet such as a 'statin', then muscle pain is more common and is likely. So double check again as indapamide is an anti-hypertensive and is not used for cholestrol.
