 1  High Blood Pressure Keeps pressure down but not a good med. otherwise. Shortness of breath, papitations, facial aging, dry, brittle grey hair, dry skin, lips, eyes, and mouth. under eye bags and puffiness that won't go away, hyperpigmentation, tinnitus, painful feet, hand and leg cramps, aches, headache, fatigue, anxiety,.constipation. When I started taking this med. I had a different pharmaceutical company and basically no side effects, worked great. After it ran out, the company was changed and I don't know what's in, or not in this poison but it's not the same and it scares me. Can't get the other anymore, and was told this is what they have. At my age, I was youthful looking, and I've aged overnight, discolored skin, and I look like a raccoon around the eyes. Been on it too long already, and Dr. doesn't want to change.because it works. Time to change med. or get a new doctor. Not worth the extra headache, especially when I already have one from this med. . . F 67 2 years

 1  Hypertension Pinprick skin rash, peripheral pitting edema, low blood sugar, slow wound healing, high blood sugar, extreme fatigue, weight gain, grey hair that disappeared after discontinuing medicine I didn't notice any major side effects at first but within the first year I started noticing my skin was not healing well anymore and cuts or scratches would take months to heal. My energy levels were insanely low and it was all I could do just to get up and function. At one point my entire body started to break out in tiny painful pinprick rashes that would not go away. No doctor mentioned any possible connection. Suddenly I realized grown a large amount of grey hair incredibly prematurely for my family's genetics. I worried that I was getting old before my time. At about the same time I began to experience painful peripheral edema in both feet and lower legs and all fingers on both hands. I also gained weight, 25 pounds, and I wondered, do I have diabetes suddenly? I got a blood sugar testing kit and discovered my blood sugar was consistently above high average and also I began to suffer random low blood sugar crashes where I would practically collapse and sweat buckets and feel awful. Then I happened to run out of my prescription for a week. I still had no idea, but my edema stopped and my blood sugar stabilized and my rash suddenly seemed to stop advancing. I thought, let's just see if it's this medicine. I took it and almost immediately I was crushed with exhaustion and I had the worst swelling in my feet to where it was pitting. The rash immediately flared back up. I feel like I had a kind of in F 43 1 years

 1   Been suffering from fatigue, rapid heartbeat, cold sweats, rashes, lymph node swelling, pin pricks on stomach, joint pain, crawling under my skin, pain in side and vision issues. I thought I had the flu, I did not. I have had to have an MRI, sonogram and been to the eye Drs all this week. Blood work came back that I tested positive for ANA for binary membrane chirosis however liver and kidney function work up came out fine. My EOS was high and my sodium was low. Again all signs of using this medication.This medication is the only medication i take and I have come to my own resolution that this most certainly is what is causing me to feel like I do. I have stopped taking this medication and would highly advise anyone to please talk your dr and have them prescribe something else. I have found this website www.drugs.com/sfx/chlorthalidone-side-effects.html and most of the symptoms on there are all something I have or have had since being on this medication. Please don’t take it I wouldn’t wish the way I feel on ANYONE!!! I only pray that these symptoms disappear and that when I retest in a few months the lab work is better! This medication should be completely banned it is already on a list of medications that are highly advised NOT to take. Seems like the pharmaceutical companies want to find a way to make more money because with this medication you will surely have a lot more issues then high blood pressure! I wish they would ban this product! F 40 6 months

CHLORTHALIDONE  (CHLORTHALIDONE):  Chlorthalidone is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. It is also used to reduce extra salt and water in the body caused by conditions such as heart failure, liver disease, and kidney disease. Decreasing extra salt and water in the body helps to decrease swelling (edema) and breathing problems caused by fluid in the lungs. Chlorthalidone is a "water pill" (diuretic). It increases the amount of urine you make, especially when you first start the medication. It also helps to relax the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
