: My mother is 71 years old. Now diagnosed with High Blod Pressure. She has been prescribed with the medication, Hydrochlorrothiazide. She is taking 25 mg a day. Want to know all side effects.
I was on diuril for 2 weeks. It did nothing for me at all except make me sick. I could only take half in the am and the other half pm. It makes you pee alot so eat bananas and anything else with lots of potassium. this helps with electolytes in the heart to keep normal rythym. I am not on a beta blocker and it too causes problems for me. You can look up any drug by typing it in on your homepage and taking it from there. It is wise to invest in a prescription book from you local book store. Hope it helps.
