HCTZ and tanning

I read on the side of my bottle to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun while on the medication? I am taking 12.5 mg. I wanted to go to a tanning bed for a couple weeks. How dangerous would that be?

Re: HCTZ and tanning

Tanning beds are dangerous to begin with as far as skin cancer. I wouldn't be taking a chance. I got an awful rash from just being out in the sun while on Inderal. It was very thick, red, but not itchy. I now have a rash on different parts of my body which may be from HCTZ. Being out in the sun for 15 min three times a week actually helps this rash. Fam
