Why not try HCTZ by itself? I had lots of med reactions so I know what you mean. It's a drug that can be stopped without drug withdrawal, its cheap but you need to eat healthy to prevent potassium problems. Trying one drug at a time is the way to go unless there is some compelling reason not too. That way it's easier to figure out which drug is causing the problem & if the drug is effective. Most people only need to take the 12.5mg of HCTZ. Fam
