Diuretic blood pressure drug. Close-up of a packet of Bendroflumethiazide tablets. Thiazide drugs are one of the most common forms of treatment for high blood pressure (hypertension). They reduce blood pressure by making the kidneys excrete more salt and water, producing more urine. This process is called diuresis and these drugs are known as diuretics.
