Hello, Walter! How are you?

No, it isn't likely that the medication would still be causing it, if you've been off of it for 3 weeks, now. The FDA classifies it as a diuretic and lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and dehydration.

Have you experienced any other symptoms, such as ongoing dizziness, difficulty urinating and muscle pain or cramping? You might be dehydrated.

Are you on a diet?
