Which is stronger of those 2 water pills? ## Hi Rita, Imprint Z 2083 has been identified as Hydrochlorothiazide (25 mg). Imprint M35 has been identified as Chlorthalidone (25 mg). Quoted below is some information I found on government website comparing Hydrochlorothiazide and Chlorthalidone: "Thiazide diuretics are a mainstay for the treatment of hypertension.

Dosages Of Chlorthalid

I JUST STARTED THE DRUG CHLORTHALID 25 MG. TODAY. I HAVE NOT NOTICED ANY INCREASE IN MY URINE OUTPUT. IS IT BECAUSE OF THE LOW DOSAGE?
