Have been taking it for about two weeks. First week, I experienced itching, then it went away. Now in second week, I'm experiencing numbness and tingling in my arms and legs... this cannot be good. I'm going to stop taking it and see what happens. I'm taking 12.5 mg.

HCT HAS BEEN BENEFICIAL IN REDUCING MY B/P, HOWEVER, I'M GOING ALL THE TIME - WHILE AT MY JOB. THIS CAN BE A BOTHER WHEN I'M IN MEETINGS. I TAKE MY MEDS IN THE LATE AFTERNOON (3-4:00 PM). AND I'M LETHARGIC AND MY JOINTS ACHE. I'VE DECIDED TO TAKE THE HCT EVERY OTHER DAY. - NORMA JEAN

Comment:
I was first put on 25 mg but that dropped my BP too low. I got switched to 12.5 and it has worked wonderful! My BP has stabilized and I couldn't be happier! I did experience blurry vision for the first 5 days but that soon cleared up! Very effective medicine! Just be patient. Side effects don't go away over night. Remember, your body is getting used to something different.
