Abstract
Thiazide (hydrochlorothiazide,...) and thiazide-like (chlortalidone, indapamide,...) diuretics are widely used to treat hypertensive patients. There is growing evidence that these diuretics are not interchangeable and that it might be preferable to choose a thiazide-like diuretic whenever the use of a diuretic is considered. This is in order to prevent optimally the development of cardiovascular complications and the occurrence of metabolic side effects, in particular diabetes.
