Hydrochlorothiazide long term side effects

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrochlorothiazide long term side effects


Avatar m tn It's amazing- other than some occasional flare-ups, I haven't had a stone in several years. I am concerned about the long and short term side effects of the hydrochlorothiazide. Outside of having to be conscientious about hydrating and really watching sun exposure, it doesn't bother me to take it daily. However, a nurse recently told me that there is research that shows a link between the hydro. and diabetes, and this causes me great concern since diabetes runs on both sides of my family.
Avatar n tn My grandmother had stroke and now shes talking crazy thins and cant recognize people.Im afraid if its a long term effect of stroke or Is this just tempory side effect ?
1900997 tn?1321663556 I started taking citalopram in 2003 when I was 34 and it was great - no side-effects whatsoever. One year later, the dose was increased to 40 mg - i.e. I've been taking 40 mg a day for ten years. One year after that, I had to start taking bisoprolol, enalapril and the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide for high blood pressure (back then it was 200/110, but it's perfectly under control now). From then on, I had regular ECGs (at least once every 2 years), but none of them ever showed anything wrong.
1553775 tn?1325186002 Is hydrochlorothiazide something that can be discontinued later after my blood pressure lowers or is it a drug that is meant to be taken long term? Has anyone had experience with Paxil causing high blood pressure? Thanks.
Avatar n tn Is there alternate medicine for this? Is there any long term side effects for these drugs? She got no heart problems. Why BP goes very high?
478554 tn?1208038007 But I assume Diuretic HCT has the least long term side effect compare to all other blood pressure drugs. May be you can tell me if this raised Triglycerides side effect is really damaging cholesterol problem, or just high reading in BP test? Or use Omega 3 to counter is good way to go?
Avatar f tn It just makes me wonder if the there are any long term effects of these prescriptions. As a side note, I also have recently been told that I have pernicious anemia. Does anyone know if either of these two problems can be effected by the two meds i listed above?
369861 tn?1306279286 Advair 100/50 mg Atenelol 50 mg Celebrex Diovan HCT 320/25 mg Hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg Norco Soma I am sick and tired of this entire thing and I just don't know which way to turn. Everytime I turn around i'm being sent to another doctor and no one seems to understand what I'm going through. They just tell me that I need to lose weight and everything will be ok. Thank for all that you do and your listening.
Avatar n tn These medications are usually prescribed for long-term treatment. To my recent horror my triglycerides had leaped to nearly 300. Reviewing my historic levels, I saw two specific time when my Tri levels 'doubled'. This was following the doubling of my propranolol dosage, however not as an immediate effect. I was not aware this could be an issue so, I was not hypervigilent to monitor - the blood work was done maybe 12-24 months following the dosage increase.
Avatar m tn If anything, it can lower BP in some people. Of course, some of us can have atypical side effects and reactions towards meds, but that's rare. SSRIs are effective in treating anxiety. Your anxiety will be a bit worse in the beginning, but after 2-6 weeks it will slowly reduce. Xanax does not treat anything (it just temporarily gives some relief) and is highly addictive. It's not at all a good replacement for Lexapro.

Avatar n tn It is possible that the ASD repair may have been preceded by decreased function of the right ventricle or increased blood pressure in your pulmonary circulation -- these are common long term affects from ASDs. A good echocardiogram will evaluate pulmonary pressures and right heart function. If you have any doubt, ask for a second opinion. You may even want to see someone that specializes in adult congenital heart disease.
1571878 tn?1354953383 They definitely care, and we owe it to them to a) save ourselves, b) get better, so c) we can fight to spread support and awareness to help others out and, one day, raise enough awareness to do something about this. Because, as you know, something is VERY, VERY WRONG, here. There ARE long-term effects. There IS permanent damage from HEAVY, CHRONIC abuse. There HAVE been suicides.
Avatar n tn In the past the opiate that was abused was heroin, we may be still learning about long term effects of synthetic opiates!! Wasn't codeine on that list? Just a thought, I think we are all different,and while alcohol must have a impact on many maybe some of these opiates have an effect on a few?
Avatar n tn Hi, I have not had any problems with atenelol. It works well, I've not noticed side effects taking 25mg. I split it, 12.5a.m and 12.5 p.m. Anymore, then I start to feel tired. It helps me with my sometimes fast heartrate, and it does tend to quiet the palpitations although not always to nothing. I get periods where I experience few palpitations and sometimes they come back for a while. All in all it has worked well and I have taken it for quite a number of years. Hope it works for you!
Avatar n tn Atenonol(50mg), Vasotec(20 mg), Hydrochlorothiazide(25mg), Imdur(30mg), Lipitor(20mg), Aspirin(81mg). Daily exercise: 30 minutes of jogging. Present lipid levels: LDL 40, HDL 59, Triglycerides 55, total cholesterol 110. Stentless angioplasty performed on LAD 8 years ago. Yearly nuclear stress tests all with similar and normal results. Since the MI it seems every six to nine months or so I end up in the emergency room with chest discomfort and elevated systolic blood pressure.
Avatar f tn Does anyone else suffer from long-term LOW CALCIUM due to what is clinically known as "post-surgical hypoparathyroidism"--in other words, they removed your thyroid, and now for whatever reason, your parathyroid glands are not functioning properly? I'm interested in your course of treatment, how much calcium and vitamin D you take, and what works for you. I've already met one person through this forum, and our email conversations have been so helpful.
148057 tn?1231430591 I did ask if the oral combined with the injection could also have impacted the result he said yes but we needed to discontinue the oral it because of the possible medical side effects. So I will continue to take my self imposed medical regiment consisting of vitamins, ginko bolbla, calcium chews, ginger ect along side my injections. As I have said I don’t know how l long this journey will be, but I know it will lead me to a better place that I was before.
Avatar m tn What was your blood pressure before and after? What side effects from the meds? How long did you stay on them? Etc, Etc.

Avatar m tn Only based on this information and the lack of more details what your best guess about the limit of a specialist to correctly diagnose the patient in scenario 1? Scenario 2 (me) Long term patient 15 years who only had one very mild occasional symptoms told to doctor who did physical exam.. My 2000 biopsy Stage 2 Grade 1 Doctor recommended treatment now and then between 2007 to 2011.
Avatar n tn In addition to my left eyelid not opening in the a.m. unless I pry it open, that eye has also begun to excessively "weep"--and this occurs all day long--and has more than normal thick "gunk" (for lack of a technical term). I also was experiencing numbness and occasional stinging in a couple of my toes on my left foot and in my left pinky finger and ring finger that lasted for about 6 months... but this symptom has pretty much disappeared lately...
Avatar n tn My body is needing more and more and I'm still tingling what is the long term affects from the intake of such a high dose of supplements. I would also like to mention the nausea,dizziness, muscle aches and headaches. I am told my my thyroid levels are ok I currently take 175 mcg. of synthroid.
Avatar n tn I bet I'm not getting in enough nourishment. Does anyone else know if this is a side effect of high protien, exremely low carb diets?
Avatar n tn Hopefully some doctor or scientist will get off his/her butt and actually figure out what this problem is and the severity it has on the health of our bodies and lives. I am concerned it will have long term effects. I, for one, prefer not to live the rest of my life with this most annoying problem.
