After 1.5 yrs of fluctuating high pressure readings (166-178 over 89-90 and despite weight lost(183 to 170-168lb and increased exercise); I was prescribed 12.5 mg 1x day of HCTZ in June 2011. I am 58yrs and no other medicine. It's been three months and my pressure has dropped to 120-112/80-60 range. I generally take my med before bed with a light meal and take my pressure 30 40 mins after awaking and before a meal. Other than urinating most frequently between 11:00am and 3:00pm I don't note any other issues.

M. QuotesChimp cost of motor vehicle insurance is excessive. It is known by customers. It is known by political Leaders. The insurance business understands this, also. Actually, because around 1986, automobile insurance rates have improved at greater than four occasions the price of inflation, with also greater quantities of growth in a few states.

I started out taking half of a 25 mg pill for two months. Then, I increased the dosage to an entire 25 mg pill. The third and fourth night after taking the full 25 mg pill I woke up with a heavy feeling in my chest and difficulty breathing. I was also nauseas and felt heaviness in my arms. I've never read any comments or concerns about heaviness in the chest so this concerns me. I am taking this medication with metopolol, but I've been taking metopolol for a long time. I take the metopolol in the morning and these side effects come in the middle of the night.
