Effects of hctz and sweating and heat?
Hi - anyone/everyone that can help,
My husband has high blood pressure. His doctor is treating him with hydrochlorothiazide and diovan. It has not gone down all the way on the low (or right) side. He sweats a lot and is out in the heat a lot for his job. He tries to drink a lot of water and such, but cannot seem to keep up with being hydrated! Any advice? His doctor is thinking about upping his hctz to a whole pill. Will this make him more dehydrated?
If anyone has first hand knowledge or knows someone else, please reply. It is really hard for him to keep up the water/liquid consumption!!!
