Re: Diuretics

Hi Flutterbye!

If your diuretic is plain old vanilla HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) the usual adult dose for edema is 25 to 100 mg orally as a single or divided dose. So even with upping your usual dose, you'd still be taking a relatively low dose. It may or may not have an impact on your BP (i.e. lowering it too much) but just continue monitoring at home-You most likely will be absolutely fine.
