Hydrochlorothiazide, HCTZ Overview

Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ or HCT) is a diuretic medication often used to treat high blood pressure and swelling due to fluid build up.[2] Other uses include diabetes insipidus, renal tubular acidosis, and to decrease the risk of kidney stones in those with high calcium level in the urine.[2] For high blood pressure it is often recommended as a first line treatment,[2][3] though the similar drug, chlorthalidone, may be better.&...

Hydrochlorothiazide And Triamterene By Sandoz Pharmaceuticals

My aunt has been taking the Sandoz Pharmaceutical, hydrochlorothiazide and triamterene for 13 yrs. The GG606, now the pharmacy is saying they can't get that one anymore that they have a new one by a different company that is the same. She has tried to take this, but it gives her a terrible heachache, where the other one didn't. Is there any pharmacy that still carries this medication by Sandoz Pharmaceutical? ## Unfortunately, there is a shortage of the Triamterene and Sandoz is one of the companies affected, so it isn't currently available anywhere. There can be fluctuations in the active ingredients of generic medications, this may be causing changes in her blood pressure, which could cause the headaches. Has she talked to her doctor about this, yet? She may require a dosa...

triamt/hctz 37.5-25

greenpill it says one side says barr--the other side says sss 843 ## I started this medication Monday, I haven't shown any side effects other than urinating every 30 to 45 minutes until around 6:00pm everyday. ## what is this meicine TRIAM/HCTZ ## The tablet with the barr 555 643 marking contains 25mgs of Hydrochlorothiazide and 37.5mgs of Triamterene, it is most commonly used to treat conditions such as high blood pressure, edema and congestive heart failure, because they are both types of diuretics that remove excess fluid from the body. That explains the frequent urination side effect, others may include nausea, dizziness, headache and dehydration.

Would like an answer to my question

I have been taking hydrochlorothiazide for years and i want to know how long it will take to get out of the system. Its a simple question and i see other people have asked the same question and they answer everything but the time frame of how long or about how long it will take to get out of the system. ## is hydrochlorot 25mg and hydrochlorothiazide 25mg ## I also take this for HBP...why are you concerned about getting it out of your system? Before stopping it, consult your doctor for a replacement or your bp may skyrocket and you'll be putting your health in a compromising state. ## The medication will be completely out of your system between 25-60 hours. However, the effects from a single dose will wear off in about 12 hours. ## It is generally about 5 to 6 half lives for a medic...

HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE

If you do not take this medication for 3-5 days can it cause water retention right away? ## Yes,I agree,especially during the warmer days. Also I noticed that after when I don't take it and I have a day where I sat for a while that my socks along my calf leave a mark. Has anyone else experienced this same problem? BUT I found a solution. My Dr prescribed a NON medicated fix which is comforatble. I wear medical legwear during the day even when I am sitting,ie..at my desk's pc working or standing at the sink doing dishes. Please let me know what anyone else found. ## I am on Hydrochlorot for high blood pressure and if I go even one day without taking my pill I get swelling in the legs, it almost feels like something is sitting on my chest and I am very tired. Do not go a day witho...

what's the difference between hcl and hctz in Benazepril?

Please explain the difference between hcl and hctz in any blood pressure medicine. ## if i take benazepril hctz20.12.5 can i take benazepril hcl 20 mg ## Benazapril with HCTZ contains 2 active ingredients, Benazepril, and Hydrochlorothiazide. The other one you listed only contains Benazepril, the HCL just designates the specific chemical salt that it is derived from, which in this case is a Hydrochloride salt. Thus, you should take the one your doctor has instructed you to take. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

elevated heart rate from meds

After 1 dose of 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide I began experiencing an elevated heart rate (97-121 resting). After my 2nd dose I developed hives. I called the doctor's office on a Friday afternoon, spoke with a nurse, but no one called back. I stopped taking it 2 days ago. My heart rate continues to be in the 100-120 range. How long before this side effect wears off? ## Hello, Sandie! I am sorry about the issues you've experienced. Has there been any change? Do you still have hives? It could take awhile for such symptoms to go away, according to FDA reports. Those can be symptoms of an allergic reaction, which means you may need to try a different medication. Is this the only one you are currently taking?

Missed 21 doses of hydrochlorothiazide

A pharmacy error caused me to miss 21 doses of hydrochlorothiazide (25 mg once daily). Can I expect side effects now that I have started taking it again? ## Yes, it is possible that you might. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. With that bad of an error, I must ask if you've considered switching to a different pharmacy? That is just horrible. Are you on any other medications?

Hydrochlorothiazide Side Effects

I'm taking Hydrochlorothiazide for water retention due to a side effect from high estrogen levels in my birth control. I take 25 mg every morning, and haven't been able to sleep at all in the past three nights. I've looked it up online and haven't found anywhere saying that it causes loss of sleep. Is that a side effect of hydrochlorothiazide or is there just something else wrong with me? Because I haven't changed any other medications, or habits since then. It's the only thing I can think of that's causing this. ## Hi Hannah, There are actually quite a few side effects listed that, in my opinion, could indirectly result in loss of sleep/insomnia-related symptoms. Posted below is a list of side effects for you to check out: Hypokalemia, an occasional side eff...
