I started taking Chlorthalidone 2 days ago. Was wondering if you can still drink alcohol while taking this medication? There is no warning on my bottle, so I thought I would ask.

Hello, Eva! How are you?

No, you should not drink, while taking this medication. Chlorthalidone is a diuretic that works be removing excess fluid from the body, alcohol does the same thing, so you could end up seriously dehydrated.

Side effects to the medication may include nausea, dizziness, headache, frequent urination and stomach pain.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Hello, Cassie!

Yes, most side effects are transient and tend to pass in about 4 to 6 weeks, once your body gets used to the medications.

You may also experience headache, dizziness, hypotension and stomach pain.

Are there any other questions or concerns?
