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. Its action on the NMDA synaptic receptors could be the cause of many of the most damaging degenerative diseases. Parkinson, Alzheimer, Obesity, ALS, Tinnitus, Meniere's, Eplipsy, Huntington's and several others. The action is the reduction of fluids in the brain tissue increases the glutamate concentrations which have a drastic effect on the glutamate activated synapse. 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 effects. ## If you feel that you hav...

yellow pill round pill with MP 30 on one side

I need to know what this pill is? I found it in my daughter's duffle bag and I am curious as to what it is? ## Hello, Angie! How are you and your daughter?

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, dehydration, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## A blood pressure drug is what it is

Chlorthalidone and coughing side effect

After two weeks of taking Chlorthalidone I have a maddening cough, yet my lungs are clear. Anyone else experience this? ## That can be a side effect of most medications used to help control blood pressure, cardiac conditions, or remove excess fluid from the body, according to FDA reports. The problem, however, is that once the cough starts, it doesn't usually go away, so you may need to try a different medication. I experienced it from Lisinopril and had to switch to a different medication. Have you informed your doctor? Are you on any other medications? ## I have been on chlorthalidone for 3 weeks. My cough is driving me nuts. I will stop taking it this weekend and call my cardiologist Monday.

Chlorthalidone made me ill

I started on this bp med 25mg. for the first time and on the 3rd day started to feel a little ill. Called doc, said whatever you do, don't stop taking. Took 1/2 tablet that night and on 4th day I felt HORRIBLE, like I'd been poisoned. Headache, nausea and dizzyness. Could barely get up. That was the last time I took it, and was sick for an entire 2 weeks, the half life is long. My last 3 days of being sick, I felt better but could not sleep for 3 days in a row. The whole thing was a heavy duty ordeal, and am now making a huge effort to do all the other lifestyle changes and alternative therapies as I will never want to go through what I did with chlorthalidone. It was really bad I told my doc, and not tolerable. Doc wanted to put me on lisiniprol, but I said no way am I trying s...

foot cramps while taking chlorthalidone

Since I started taking this I have been experiencing really bad foot cramps. Off and on during the day and some nights life tonight its really bad and causing me to lose sleep. Dr told me to make sure to eat leafy greens which I do daily and also bananas for potassium but they won't stop. Any suggestions? ## Hello, April! How are you? Are you also being careful to take in enough fluid each day? This medication is classified by the FDA as a diuretic, so it works be removing fluid from the body. You may be experiencing the cramping due to dehydration. That's always an early warning for me that I'm getting dehydrated, which I have a bad habit of doing. Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension and increased urination. ## I too am having le...

Weight gain and depression after stopping Chlorthalidone

I have successfully lost 100lbs over the last 2 years. I went off chlorthalidone three weeks ago and I have gained about 10 pounds while lowering my calories by 50 a day. My period and blood pressure are staying great but I'm depressed and don't want to get fat again. I had been on 25 mg every other day for nearly six years. I then stopped taking it at once, not gradually. I wasn't told to do that, perhaps because I only took a pill every other day anyway. ## That could be some rebound fluid retention, since this medication is a diuretic, according to FDA reports, it may take awhile for things to settle back out and return to normal. Stopping abruptly could also cause edema, and elevated heart rate. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medi...

Doctor says to stop Chlorthalidone 25mg

I am taking multiple medicines for my hypertension. 10mg lisinopril, 50 mg Metroprolol XR and Chlorthalidone 25 mg. In the afternoons, I get very dizzy, have mild chest pain and I have spaced the doses out to determine that it is the Chlorthalidone that is the cause. My cholesterol has also shot up after taking Metroprolol & Chlorthalidone for 4 months. My doctor says it is fine to just stop the Chlorthalidone but I am worried about rebounding edema. I am a 54 year old female. I'm thinking maybe it would be better to wean by skipping one day, then 2 days, then 3 days until I see how I react since this medicine remains in your system so long. Help! I had the sensations in my heart "getting" on this medicine but my doctor told me it was normal. ## Hello, Anita! How are you...

Alcohol use and Chlorthalidone

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.

Chlorthalidone Reviews

Has anyone experienced side effects from taking Chlorthalidone? ## Can Chlorthalidone 25 mg and Lotensin 20mg combined cause mild angina in a 64 year old females? I recently developed angina after taking these combined medications. The angina happens at rest. ## The FDA has approved Chlorthalidone to treat congestive heart failure, and high blood pressure. They list its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, hypotension, headache, and dehydration. Greengoat, it is more likely that you were going to develop it, anyway. These medications are most commonly used to treat it, not cause it, according to NIH studies. How long have you been taking them?

Chlorthalidone issues

I was put on 25 mg. of chlortalidone several months ago. I lost a lot of weight and felt terrible. I contacted my dr. and they had me cut it in half. I continued to not feel well and started having irregular heartbeat, tingling and numbness, muscle cramps. My dr. sent me to a cardiologist who ran a stress test and echocardiogram. It showed irregular heart rythmns but he said he thought I was ok. I had read about low potassium while on diuretics so he asked if I'd had a blood test (which I hadn't nor was it ever suggested). My potassium came back below normal so the cardiologist & fam dr. were all worried and told me to increase my potassium and get retested in a week. I did and my results came back normal. But I still feel awful--irregular heartbeat, tingling, stomach issues...

Can I still take the vigara ## Hello, BobbyB! How are you? What are your blood pressure readings with the Chlorthalidone? The Viagra can also lower it, so it's really going to depend on that.

chlorthalidone and increased risk of diabetes

This drug has been linked to diabetes in quite a few people, which is the reason why i've decided to no longer take it. You take a medication for one thing and end up taking meds for the side effects. ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? There are possible risks associated with all medications. What everyone needs to do is learn as much as they can about whatever they've been prescribed, then discuss the risks and benefits with their doctor to see if the benefits outweigh the risks. There can be a risk of diabetes associated with Chlorthalidone, as noted by the FDA, but it is a very low risk, so some people might need the benefits of this medication, so it could be worth taking that chance. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, hypotension, stomach pain, increa...
