Hydrochlorothiazide side effects depression

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrochlorothiazide side effects depression


Avatar n tn My question is what side effects of tenormin, zestril, and hydrochlorothiazide can cause swelling, sweating, low pulse rate, cough, dry mouth, shortness of breath, and lightheadness? I take 100mg tenormin, 40mg zestril and 25mg hydrochlorothiazide daily and notice more symptoms each day. Also my urine is a dark yellow now and I feel tired and with no energy to do things now. I have been on these meds for a long time and still my blood pressure is high.
Avatar n tn Celexa and Effexor had been helping me, but my husband was concerned about side effects, and withdrawal and asked me to make a change. Now, I am experiencing tremendous difficulty sleeping, severe migraines, which had been under control prior to taking Wellbutrin SR, and dizziness.
Avatar n tn She also prescribed Amitriptyline (50 mg at bedtime) to prevent the headaches. I am also on 25 mg Hydrochlorothiazide (in the a.m.) to control my blood pressure. Are these drugs safe while trying to get pregnant, during pregnancy, and while breastfeeding or is there another recommendation?
Avatar n tn I was released. I was told I should have no side effects. But now I have bad head aches on my left temple and I get a stabbing pain on my temple and neck, that last that last just several seconds. Also my speach has been effected slightly. Often I will be talking and a word will pop in a sentence where it doesnt belong, and I forget just what I want to say. Could you tell me how long these symptons last?
Avatar f tn It did what it was supposed to do, however I also developed post partum anxiety/depression and was put on Escitalopram, Alprazolam (as needed) and klonopin (1mg) at night only. The side effects of the labetalol for me were awful, so once my readings got better, I weaned off of it and am now not taking anything for Bp which usually stays in a good range (120-135 over 78-85). Some days it's a bit high and some days it's normal.
Avatar n tn Go to Google and type in the name of the meds she is taking and next to it "side effects" i.e. "metroprolol side effects" and it takes you instantly to the side effects of that medication.
Avatar f tn I guess I am afraid of diet pills after the ruckus with Phen-phen. I was assured Redux was VERY safe--no adverse side effects I have since learned I have pul. Hypertension and 3 damaged heart valves.This causes depression when I think about it. I was a hospice nurse. I am on Wellbutrin among others. I have NO desire to eat. I simply eat to live. Keep in touch. Blessings and prayer.
451323 tn?1205689918 Ativan for depression; hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg for hypertension and Benazepril (ACE inhibitor for hypertension), Imipramine 50 mg for depression, and 81 mg asiprin for prophylactic arteriovascularity, and hydrocodone for back pain(2 yrs, possibly addicted to Lortab). Burning Mouth Syndrome came to mind for me as top on the differential, but what is causing it? The patient swears that it all started after she got her braces on when she was about 46.
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 30am shaky, weak, nauseated, and had dry heaves. She did have a bowel movement at approx. 6:30am and had a small bowl of cream of wheat at about 8:30am but remains extremely shaky and weak. She does seem to get better in the afternoon and evening. She has had previous episodes of these types of symptoms with nothing ever found except low magnesium and once she was sent to hospital because internist “saw something he thought was abnormal on office EKG.
21064 tn?1309312333 Not one other side effect. I was also on Lipitor a year ago...It really worked, and I had zero side effects from that. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn You must be so proud of yourself for trying to cutback the Flecainide. Most of us simply take side effects as part of the deal and you tried. Wow! The thing is now you don't have to wonder and you got peace of mind. I too have that drugged feeling while on Rhythmol and recently Flecainide. My daily exercise has been limited as I have so many side effects from this drug. In the medical world this is known as paying the price for maintaining sinus rhythm.
343006 tn?1314450071 Im gonna ask for the new pills ,as no side effects ! so again I wait for a call and appointment - then will face the foes and get it done fast ! I found that not thinking of the problem helps - and keeping happy or upbeat really helps as depression hits hard - and that can really cause some problems.. and having total Faith in God helps the most ! as God can move mountians !! praying helped me and helps me, and being around family that supports me !! and friends..
Avatar f tn I did that with my constipation, my muscle pain/charley horses, my insomnia, my depression and so on. It helped doing it that way. If you don't help yourself, who else will (?) I don't think you would rather die earlier, would you, truly? You might be missed and if you don't have anybody to miss you, I would.
1285653 tn?1288362229 I too had some horrible side effects at first but the more my dosage went up the better the side effects got. the first week or so was the worst. It did nothing for my headaches and only intenseified my already annoying symptoms. My memory has been an issue for a while and the one bright side is that before Topomax my DH would get frustrated when he had to repeat himself because I didnt remember the conversation...and while on it he couldnt get frustrated with me. he he.
Avatar n tn Though it works well to control a-fib, it has many possible side-effects. Try the others first. At this point you have alot of options. You are certainly not at the end of the rope with choices. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I actually take a high dose of atenolol , I take 100mg daily , though I take it as 25mg x4 times daily, my cardio agrees with the way I take it, it works better for me in divided doses. Luckily I dont suffer any side effects from atenolol, only an occasional nightmare or vivid dreams. I think the benefits of beta blockers have been well established though not everyone can take them for some they can literally give them back their lives.
1210887 tn?1268677277 Meanwhile in answer to yor question about medication to help cope with these symptoms unless they are very severe medications have their side effects which are not good for you. I have done alot of research on autoimmune diseases and one peace of information i found a very good read was at: http://cinque.getwebspace.com/facts.html Please read and consult these options with a specialist as it may be alot better option for you than medication.
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 f tn Sometimes I am spared the excrutiating head pain and just get the auras, but most of the time the pain follows the aura. Do you find that the weather effects your migraines? I am very sensitive to any changes in the weather - especially thunderstorms. Hope you are well! Take care.
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 Not sure if you drink diet coke or not or use an artificial sweetner with aspertame? Apparently, some of the side effects you mentioned are very similar to those of Aspertame users. If this is the case, you may want to explore substituting with a natural sweetner like Honey or Stevia and get off the aspertame....
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 At present, Percocet 2 350 mg tabs every 6 hours. This was causing side effects, Bad headaches in the morning, plus chills like the flu. Otherwise I might have been able to stand it. The pain was there, just lessened it. Tonight, I tried a Banana and glass of Orange Juice like the Ultra Sound Radiologist told me Pregnant women use when experiencing leg cramps and no percocet tonight and just 2 tylenol and if helps a lot. If it is a Parathyroid needing to be removed.
Avatar n tn So, with the beta blockers - do you still have the rash at all, or is it completely gone?? I have a Drs. Appt in July....
