Diuretic and fast heart rate

Is it possible for a Diuretic to cast a rapid pulse?

Re: Diuretic and fast heart rate

A diuretic can cause dehydration which can cause rapid heart rate. I know if I get dehydrated my pulse shoots up. Get lots of fluids into yourself.

Good luck...JJ...

Re: Diuretic and fast heart rate

Thats what I was thinking. I am also taking phentermine which yes can cause rapid pulse but dehydration as well. But I woke up with a pulse of 100! Thinking I should drink more. I am probably getting to old to be taking such meds anyway, but my doctor prescribed and seems comfortable with me taking the phen.

Re: Diuretic and fast heart rate

Well the phentermine is a stimulant, so that plus the diuretic just might do it. I don't think age has much to do with a lot of things, it's half these drugs have way too many side effects. I'm extremely sensative to meds, so trust me, if there is a side effect...I'll probably get it...

Back to spring cleaning for me, so enjoy your day...JJ...
