Is it true that HCTZ (and equivalents) can CAUSE hypertension?

It really depends on what you are going to consider as causing it.

If someone doesn't have hypertension or has stage one hypertension, will it give them a severe and permanent case? The answer to this is no!

The way these medications can cause someone's blood pressure to raise is by their effect on Potassium in the body. They can cause it to leech out, so the person doesn't have enough and, this in turn, can cause their blood pressure to become elevated, because Potassium is essential to the proper regulation of it.

However, it is remedied by simply replacing the potassium and/or discontinuing the medication.

And in summary, no, if someone that is healthy takes these and does not suffer that potassium loss, it is not going to cause them to develop hypertension.


Are there any other comments or questions?

Is there a danger to use it with guaifenesin, which can also (?) chelate metals from the system? Thank you.
