Some of the most common side effects of indapamide include fatigue, back pain, and muscle cramps or spasms. In most cases, side effects of the drug are minor and don't require medical attention. There are, however, a number of potentially serious indapamide side effects that should be reported to a healthcare provider immediately, including lightheadedness, high blood sugar, or signs of dehydration.

Indapamide Side Effects: An Overview

As with any medicine, there are possible side effects with indapamide (Lozol®); however, not everyone who takes the medicine will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate indapamide well. When side effects do occur, in most cases they are minor and either require no treatment or can be easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(The side effects discussed below are not a complete list of side effects reported with indapamide. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of indapamide side effects with you.)
