Yes, I think you should get periodic blood screenings while on a diuretic. You want to look at things like postassium levels, cholesterol levels and the indicators of diabetes.

My only experience with a diuretic came with Hyzaar which has a diuretic in it. It gave me nausea, I sweat like a pig and my heart rate went up to 125 beats per minute while at rest. That was after about 4 days of dosing.

I'd taken Losartan by itself and had no side effects or impact on my blood pressure, so the reactions had to have been to the Hydrochlorothiazide which is a diuretic.
