Hydrochlorothiazide and dizziness

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrochlorothiazide and dizziness


Avatar f tn I had some of the side effects listed under dangerous side effects and had to stop taking it. So I reminded my doctor of that and he put me on Hydrochlorothiazide. I took this for one day and was extremely sick the whole day. I started with some dizziness, and headache, then went to cramps which turned into very bad cramps. I wasn't too concerned at first because I read that as your body adjusts to it you can get a bit dizzy, and headache, and stomach upset.
Avatar m tn You can also get a low blood sugar on metformin, if you are not eating properly - and that can cause dizziness.
Avatar f tn Looking for good new...found out I am pregnant and am taking Lisinopril 10mg. Does anyone have any experience with this?
Avatar m tn where my BP is 124-138/92 . When I get this attack my feet and hands feel cold, my heart rate increases, and I feel a little bit light headed. this happens maybe 1-2 days in a week or 2. My doctor gave me 12.5 hydrochlorothiazide. This does not help. It does lower by blood pressure further down (106/65) on most days but I still get this "attack" occasionally. 2 years ago I did stress test and the result was good. How long the result is valid?
Avatar m tn About 3 years ago my husband was on lisinopril and hydrochlorothiazide. After taking it for approx. 6 months, he crashed and had to be rushed to the ER with extremely low potassium levels. The doctor who had prescribed the lisinopril had told him to stay away from high potassium foods, or supplements, which he did, and when he went down he was extremely weak, was power vomiting all over the place, and lost the better part of his vision.

Avatar n tn I take Toprol right now, but it really doesn't seem to do much. Can palpitations cause other symptoms such as dizziness and nausea.
Avatar f tn Have you told your doc about the dizziness? You have diabetes and are not taking any meds...I'm wondering if your blood sugar is fluctuating...very low OR very high sugar will make you dizzy. The best way to lose weight is to go slowly, and try to cut out junk food, candy, ALL soda, and snacks like chips, crackers, etc. Try to eat as low carb as possible: Here is a sample of what I'm eating (I'm trying to lose 20 pounds.

1139187 tn?1355710247 Meniere's is usuallly treated with a diuretic and sometimes a capillary dilator - I was on hydrochlorothiazide and isoxuprine (this was 11 years ago). But I was asked to do food elimination, because after steroids were used to bring down the initial attacks, the doctor figured maybe food was aggravating it. So one of my brothers had just been diagnosed with celiac disease, so I thought I would start there - and VOILA! that was the problem.
Avatar n tn Side effects of losartan potassium-hydrochlorothiazide tablets such as dizziness, myalgia, muscle pain, weakness and restlessness may be managed with dose adjustment. Cutting the pill may result in unequal doses for each medicine and may not be as effective. It is best to take the medicine as prescribed or inform your attending physician regarding the symptoms that you experience for proper management. Lowering the dose to 100-12.5 or 50-12.
Avatar n tn I am not on any anti-depressant medication, nor have I been in the past. Current meds are Klor-Con 10 for low potassium and Hydrochlorothiazide for bp that was high in the past, but has been normal/low over last several months. My question is if there are any other known causes for the 'brain shivers/zaps'? I experienced my worst one yet last night...very frightening.

1398693 tn?1343688338 My Dr. prescribed Hydrochlorothiazide for my HBP on Saturday I started it and after 3 days I’m finding that I am getting more dizzy and I can’t stand without holding on to something also the ringing in my ears is louder than in the past couple of days. Is it supposed to be like this? Having High Blood is new to me and I’ve never felt this way before.
Avatar n tn I have lisinopril and diltiazem. I know the beta blockers and, I believe, the hydrochlorothiazide can produce tiredness, as can clonazepam. I don't think citalopram has any effect on tiredness.
Avatar m tn I am currently taking Irbesartan and Hydrochlorothiazide after visiting my doctor on the topic of high blood pressure (185/105) 4 weeks ago. I have been a truck driver for 5 years and my sleeping habits were not stable but very regular. Since going on the medication the headaches and dizziness have stopped. About 10 days after beginning the medication I have had trouble sleeping Sunday nights only. I lay awake and toss and turn.

471949 tn?1236907626 My doc (VA doc) just put me on spironolactone for my hbp (25mg x1) because my other med was causing my potassium levels to go dangerously low. Problem is, the new med caused me to swell badly and for some reason my blood pressure was low. So, to fix the swelling problem, the VA doc (they aren't the smartest)....doubled the med!!!! Now I have low blood pressure and am dizzy all the time, but doc is happy that the swelling is better and my potassium is normal.
Avatar n tn We comprimised and she gave my 2 Rxs for Atenolol 100mg and Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg. I am to start taking 1/2 tablet of each, once daily in the morning. I am free to adjust my dosages gradually until I find a combination that works well for me, as long as I promise to keep monitoring my BP so that it does not go over 140/90 and I return in a month for BP and med check. So...
Avatar n tn Altace(10mg) twice a day); Atenolol(50mg); Hydrochlorothiazide(25mg); Imdur(30mg); Lipitor(20mg); and Aspirin(81mg). Recently my systolic blood pressure started to elevate to 150 and my doctor, about a week ago, has now added Norvasc(5mg) per day to bring my systolic back into the 125 - 135 range which has been successful. It was explained that this could be due to the onset of Isolated Systolic Hypertension(ISH). My diastolic blood pressure has been relatively normal between 70 - 75.

481256 tn?1208395893 I asked my doctor to prescribe me a mild diuretic to use while on vacation (I can't use OTC meds b/c the caffeine does not agree with me), and he prescribed me triamterene/hctz 37.5/25mg. Is this too strong of a medication? I am nervous that it may make my blood pressure drop too low. Is there anything else you would recommend?
Avatar m tn org/home/othertreatments/thyroid_hormones Maybe there is some truth in his observations on Benicar and thyroid? Has anyone felt hyperthyroid symptoms on Benicar?
Avatar f tn Another episode of blinding headache and dizziness last night but were able to treat with tylenol and ibuprofen. It breaks my heart that she will have to deal with graves for possibly a lifetime. I know there are many worse things to get and I keep telling myself this is manageable and treatable and we'll al be fine. 2nd child saw endo. She does not feel there are thyroid issues. Her feeling is that there is something whonky with the adrenal gland.
