I didn't ever take HCTZ by itself. But, I did take it in combo forms. For me, I dropped 3 pounds on the very first day. I thought, "Cool, instant weight loss." But, one month later, I was 10 lbs heavier (net 7 lbs). After I discontinued the HCTZ, those 3 lbs came back immediately. So I was ultimately 10 lbs heavier in one month. Weight went from 205 -> 202 -> 212 -> 215.
