I have recently been prescribed the drug hydrochlorothiazide, or known as AP-HYDRO, 25mg. I have not begun taking it, does anyone know if there are side effects, does it in fact lower BP readings? What are your experiences with this drug? I am to take 1/2 a pill in the am.<p>[This message has been edited by Elfrieda (edited 05-15-2001).]
Elfrieda: I have taken 1/2 a pill of Hydrochlorothiazide (what a long name for such a small pill)in the a.m. for two days now,I have not had any side effects as yet. The only thing, is that you have to stay close by a rest room, trips will be increased. Good luck and let me know how you are doing.
