It is unproven whether the substance Hydrochlorothiazide will clean cocaine out of a person's system.

However, this drug does cause you to urinate excessively and, as cocaine is excreted in the urine this may help. However, there is little scientific grounding for this.

Cocaine is primarily broken down in the liver, whereas Hydrochlorothiazide inhibits the kidney's ability to retain water.

These drugs are broken down in different organs and therefore may not have any positive effect on cleansing your system of the traces of cocaine use.

Does Hydrochlorothiazide clean your system from cocaine?
  • Hydrochlorothiazide reduces the amount of water in the body whilst keeping important nutrients like calcium in.
  • Typically the drug is used to treat fluid retention in patients with liver, kidney or heart problems. It can also be used to treat people with abnormally-high blood pressure.
  • This drug works by reducing the blood volume in the kidneys to reduce sodium reabsorption. By reducing sodium reabsorption hydrochlorothiazide induces natriuresis which in turn causes water loss.

It might help. Staying active & well hydrated will help also, but there is no quick fix. It won't be out of the system overnight.
