I Only Started This Medication 6 months Ago but My High Blood Pressure Has Dropped To Normal With No Side Effects So Far! I Did Read Somewhere That You Can Have Hair Loss With This Med & Wondered If Anyone Had This Problem? I'm Thinning Already Due To Being Post Menepausal & Do Not Need Any More Loss!! Hope Someone Out There Knows!! Margie In N.Y

Comment:
Of all the years I have been taking this medicine I thought it was a combo of a diuretic and potassium - After reading the info here- I guess not - - I know at one time my BP was very high - had a shot of BUMAX - lost 6 lbs in four hours in Dr's office. I note my potassium is a little low - - -hmmm - good website

This medication lowered my potassium levels drastically to the point of being exhausted & I cannot even walk across the room,my eyes are sunken,and I am quite weak, I have also lost an insane amount of weight which I did not have to lose as I only weigh 124lbs. on my heavy days. Its alarming to me that this pill could do this after a week!Beware!

I have been taking Spirono/HCTZ for a long time. Without it I blow up like a balloon, I hold so much water my skin literally stretches until it looks like it is going to split. I am very grateful for Spirono/HCTZ.
