 1  hbp Extreme dizziness, almost fainted twice. Heart palpatations, back pain, insomnia, sudden hot flashes. Allover sick feeling. Very fatigued with strange weakness in the back of my upper arms. I felt like it was an effort to walk across the room and had to sit down often. I went to the dr for palpatations and she set me up on a holter monitor and then prescribes something that causes palpatations. Go figure. My bp wasn't that high that I needed something so strong.

 1  HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE high b pressure Had severe anxiety, panic attacks, paranoid, could not handle any stress, could not travel or leave my home, weird thoughts, suicidal thoughts and more. It took me about a year and more to start to feel better from these bad side effects. The effects slowly creep up on you and then they get bad. Also do not stop taking this drug. You will have to slowly ween off the drug or else you will have a bad rebound effect from it. This also happened to me. Not a good drug and should be taken off the market. HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE 5mg or 10mg is for high blood pressure. It is not a good drug and should be taken off the market. Try natural ways like eating alot of veggies and changing your diet instead of taking F 36 6 months

 3  moderate high blood pressure My blood pressure has been a little high so my doc put me on this medication. I lost 30 pounds within 3 months. Loved that! However, my hair started falling out. It took about six months to notice how thin my hair had become. I now only take this medication 3x a week and taking large doses of prenatal vitamins. My hair is starting to grow back after 2 months. My blood pressure was borderline at my last check up. F 44 8 months

ESIDRIX  (HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE):  This medication is used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Hydrochlorothiazide belongs to a class of drugs known as diuretics/"water pills." It works by causing you to make more urine. This helps your body get rid of extra salt and water. This medication also reduces extra fluid in the body (edema) caused by conditions such as heart failure, liver disease, or kidney disease. This can lessen symptoms such as shortness of breath or swelling in your ankles or feet.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
