Re: New to diuretics-Help with bad side effects!
Ringing in the ear and inbalances are normal for hctz. My mom took them for a long time. It does keep bp low, but it can have bad side effects. Im with zuzu, i would just show up at the dr's office and explain that i needed to see a triage nurse or a dr's assistance.
Your symptoms could be something needing attention asap.
