[Cardiovascular (CV) diseases are not only the leading causes of mortality in Hungary, but also the mortality rate is excessively high compared with the average of European Union, so screening programs identifying subjects with elevated blood pressure (BP) is of utmost importance.

A lot of discussion has been directed at side effect profiles and as a result, has created a perhaps disproportionate fear of the metabolic effects and potential increased risk of skin cancer that can be associated with diuretics. Data, however, show that the risk of a clinically meaningful change in laboratory parameters is very low, their carcinogenic potential is not fully proved, whereas the benefits of volume control and natriuresis are high and the reductions in morbidity and mortality are clinically significant. Moreover, several international guidelines have started making a distinction between thiazides (hydrochlorothiazide) and thiazide-like (chlorthalidone, indapamide) diuretics; and some of them now recommend longer acting thiazide-like diuretics. Based on this differentiation chlorthalidone and indapamide may need to be subdivided further into separate classifications. Nevertheless, it’s worth to know that indapamide exists in two formulation with ]
