Propranolol is a beta-blocker. Beta-blockers affect the heart and circulation (blood flow through arteries and veins).
The combination of hydrochlorothiazide and propranolol is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension).

What is the most important information I should know about hydrochlorothiazide and propranolol (Inderide)?
You should not use this medication if you have asthma, severe or uncontrolled heart failure, a heart condition called "sick sinus syndrome" or "AV block," or if you are unable to urinate.
Before using this medication, tell your doctor if you have congestive heart failure, kidney or liver disease, cirrhosis, glaucoma, bronchospastic lung disease, gout, lupus, diabetes, a thyroid disorder, or if you are allergic to sulfa drugs or penicillin.
If you are diabetic, check your blood sugar carefully. Using propranolol can make it harder for you to tell when you have low blood sugar. Your insulin or diabetic medication needs may change while you are taking hydrochlorothiazide and propranolol. Talk with your doctor before changing any doses.
Drinking alcohol can further lower your blood pressure and may increase your blood levels of propranolol.
Avoid becoming overheated or dehydrated during exercise and in hot weather. Follow your doctor's instructions about the type and amount of liquids you should drink. In some cases, drinking too much liquid can be as unsafe as not drinking enough.
Keep using this medication even if you feel fine. High blood pressure often has no symptoms.
There are many other medicines that can interact with hydrochlorothiazide and propranolol. Tell your doctor about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use.
