4.1 Therapeutic indications
Bendroflumethiazide is indicated for:
1. Cases where the reduction of fluid retention by diuresis is required; oedema of cardiac, renal or hepatic origin and iatrogenic oedema
2. Bendroflumethiazide produces a moderate but usefully prolonged fall of blood pressure in hypertensive patients. It may be used as the sole antihypertensive agent, or, as an adjunct to other drugs whose action it potentiates. In non-oedematous patients, there may be little noticeable diuretic effect.
