Side Effects

  • Rise slowly from a seated or lying position to minimize the dizziness or lightheadedness.
  • Blurred vision, loss of appetite, itching, stomach upset, headache and weakness may also occur during initial therapy as your body adjusts to the medication.

Precautions
  • Tell your doctor your medical history especially if you have gout, diabetes, liver problems, urinary problems or any allergies especially to sulfa medications.
  • Thiazide diuretics may increase sensitivity to sunlight.
  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure.
  • If you become sun sensitive, use a sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors.

Missed Dose

Drug Interactions

  • If you take colestipol or cholestyramine for high cholesterol, take the diuretic 1 hour before or 4 hours after because of decreased absorption into the bloodstream.
  • Avoid any drugs that increase your heart rate or make you excited like decongestants because it may counter-act your blood pressure medicine.
