Thanks, Lenin and Bethsheba. I'll keep those things in mind when I talk to the doc. I have been having horrible back pain, but it is a recurrence of a problem I had once a few years ago - I seriously doubt it's the HCT, partly because it's decreasing with stretching and NSAIDs. I'll definitely not just drop any of my meds, as I am on quite a cocktail at the moment. I am taking the three BP meds, an SSRI, the Naproxen for my back and a few endocet for the back pain. I'm feeling old at 34.
