Blood Pressure Medication with Ostomy

My husband has an ileostomy and also needs blood pressure medication. We have heard that water pills are not advised for ostomates. Help is needed to find a BP medicine that will work. Most doctors are not aware of the issues facing ostomates and the loss of fluid.

Not sure that this is true, but if so, calcium channel blocker, angiotensin receptor blocker or ace inhibitor all do not produce a diuresis.
