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, increased urination and dehydration.

What were you taking it to treat?

I have been on chlorthalid 25 mg for a month now and at the same time I've noticed that my arms won't move behind my head to do my hair without a lot of pain. My doctor didn't think it was arthritis but it's very painful and I wondered if it could be a side effect from this medication. I'm 64 and taking lotral and also zocor. I'm type 2 diabetic.
