After trying several other medications with very negative results, this one is a blessing. No more yo-yo bp readings, no more brain fog and lethargy.

I had blood pressure of 150/110. Doc check my leg and put pressure with his thumb on my shinbone. It left a big indentation. He said the my body was holding fluids and causing me to have high blood presure.Taken for 2 weeks blood pressure ranges 116/75 to 125/82 works for me

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

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.

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 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'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.
