I have been taking this pill at the same dosage for 15 years and have had no problems until recently. I've notice occasional dizziness and about a year ago I started developing a numbness in my feet. I just read in the description of the pill that this can be a rare side effect. I will talk with my doctor about it and do more research as well. Has anyone else noticed this??

I've been taking Hydrochlorothiazide for 6 months now. I have had excellent results with only occasional light dizzyness shortly after dosing. Unlike many of the reviewers,I read the precautions and stopped all alcohol consumption. It say it right there on the bottle as well as the medical recommendations my Doctor gave me.

I have been on the drug for a week and it has been very effective. My blood pressure has dropped seven points and swelling around ankles has decreased. No side effects to speak of and no increase in urine output. I exercise and hydrate often and have not notice an increase in urine output.
