GirlOfSteel,

I've taken HCTZ for decades with no rash or any side affect except continuously very low serum sodium.
Yes there is a very real alternative...Lasix (furosemide.) I really like it and it doesn't affect my sodium level. It also is kinder to my "loins"...old biblical useage:jester: :jester: .

Ask your doctor for a trial with it. Only downside is that you need to keep a toilet within range for about 2 hours after your morning doseage. You can take it once or twice a day. Once a day, 40 mg., does a nice job on my water retention and BP.

I think it is a VERY nice drug...and CHEAP too.
