Chlorthalidone Use
In my research on Chlorthalidone I have come upon information that may have a drastic impact on the use of this type of drug.

It opens the synapse for Sodium which lowers the voltage and allows Ca+ to attach and results in the death of the nerve. It also creates a whole chain of other similar effects with other neurotransmitters. Taken in massive doses it can have devastating affect. ## If you feel that you have ... ...

Chlorthalid Side Effects to date
I want to know the side effects of chlorthalid. will it effect my gums, and make my teeth loose ## Chlorthalidone is a diuretic that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and edema.

If you produce less saliva, it can allow bacteria to stay in the mouth longer than usual, which could cause dental damage. That is something that you should be careful of, when taking it. You will need to make sure that you take in enough fluids in a day to prevent dehydration and such problems. Other side effects may include: nausea, dizziness and hyperkalemia.

Chlorthalidone 25mg and bruising
I have been taking Chlorthalidone 25mg since June 2012. Prior to starting this medicine I noticed that I bruise very easily. I constantly have numerous bruises, ranging in size from large (baseball size) to very small on my arms, legs and chest. On average there are 10 bruises at any given time. Has anyone had bruising as a side effect from Chlorthalidone? My family is concerned that it's not the medicine (since this started prior to the medicine) and is something more serious. Am making a Dr. appointment tomorrow but would love to know if anyone else has experienced this. ## If it started prior to your taking the Chlorthalidone, then it can't be just due to a side effect of the medication. However, there is a chance that the medication may be worsening whatever issue is causing... ...
