It actually lowers blood pressure by expelling water from the body

" Hydrochlorothiazide, sometimes abbreviated HCT, HCTZ, or HZT is a popular diuretic drug of the thiazide class that acts by inhibiting the kidneys' ability to retain water. This reduces the volume of the blood, decreasing blood return to the heart and thus cardiac output and, by other mechanisms, is believed to lower peripheral vascular resistance. "

I also have a dry cough from the same medicine, however, my upper back hurts and it makes it hard for me to sleep as well. I try to keep an eye on my blood pressure. I am now exercising so that I can drop my weight and get off this medicine.

Between 33-35yrs old, I began to get ill with dry sweats, fevers & steamy/cooking skin(could smell my skin sometimes it was so hot.) Anyways, I was put on HCTZ & could take a sip of drink & be running all day. I too(now) am dealing with lower back, thighs & knees pain & can hardly sleep all night. However, I wasn't sure which of my meds(if any) were to blame do to the fact that I've also been on Amlodipne 5mg for my pressure for about 2 1/2 yrs. *Baffled*
