THE ONLY BAD SIDE EFFECT I BELIEVE IS CAUSED BY THIS DRUG IS HAIR BREAKAGE AND LOSS.THE GREAT SIDE EFFECT IS WEIGHT LOSS.

My doctor prescribed 12.5 mg of Microzide about 9 months ago for high blood pressure. Initially, the medication worked very well. However, at my last appointment, the doctor informed me that my blood pressure was elevated despite the use of Microzide. The doctor said that she may increase my dosage at my next appointment. There have been no adverse side effects to report. There has been an increase in the amount of urine produced and frequency to eliminate. This is not a problem as I take the medication in the morning so it does not interfere with sleep.

My Dr. prescribed the 12.5 caps for my consistent borderline high bloodpressure. at times it seems to work fine at other times, when i'm stressed it does not. i have had higher readings. it is also a challenge to keep myself hydrated while taking this as i usually didn't drink alot during the day. she thought this would be the best start for me and for now my Dr. is satisfied so i guess i should be also. i take the generic if that matters to anyone.

I have been taking the generic Hchlorothiazide for about 1 year, and it has kept my blood pressure at 120/80 or less with no side effects that I am aware of.

I am taking lisinopril, my blood pressure was not as low as it should have been. My Dr. prescribed in addition to that medication the Microzide. My blood pressure with that added is under control now.

I've been on this medicene for quite a while, 12.5mg. Then needed to increase to 25mg, I noticed my eyes were very dry, went to eye doctor and he said diurectics can dry eyes out. Got off of it, switched to another med that caused weight gain and swelling of ankles, now thinking of trying to go back on water pill but stay at lower dosage. Others do not seem promising from what i read.

I AM TAKING A SMALL DOSAGE AND DO NOT FIND THIS TO BE GREATLY EFFECTIVE. I HAVE BECOME TERRIBLY CONSTIPATED AND CAN'T HELP BUT BELIEVE THIS MEDICATION IS TO BLAME.

I've been taking for 4wks and have had severe dizziness, muscle cramps, irregular heartbeat. I feel very strange. BP is normal but pulse is low. I hope the benefits are worth the side effects
