Hyzaar side affect

hi...I have been on cozaar for about 3 years now and just recently been switched over to hyzaar to reduce my water retention...I've been on it for 2 months now and have been having the heaviest and longest periods in my life. I have never been this heavy before, and they last about 9 days...has anyone experienced anything like this ? Im hearing alot of negative things about diuretics and am wondering if I should go back to my cozaar or maybe switch to something different all together.

any comments would be greatly appreciated

I don't think it's the HCTZ in the HYZAAR that's responsible. The combination has never given me any problems...but then I'm a guy.

Very funny Lenin, You keep us all up with your humor.

On the subject of diuretic and and heavy periods, I took HCT most of the time for the last 25 years with no "monthly" problems.

Re: Hyzaar side affect

Nic Nac, it could be coincidence in timing. If you are over 35, it might be related to perimenopause.
