If you have high blood pressure, Oretic (hydrochlorothiazide) can help to keep your blood pressure under control. Oretic can also be used to treat people with fluid retention that is caused by congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disorders. If you are retaining fluid due to the use of estrogen or steroid medications, Oretic can help get rid of the extra fluid in your body through your urine.
