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.
