Jemini on Feb, 11, 2013:
I'm a female, age 53. My doctor prescribed HCTZ 25/ Triamterene 37.5 MG for my High Blood Pressure. After taking it for about 3 days, on the 4th day I developed really bad muscle spasms in my mid back area. I did loose water weight really good but could not deal with the spasms. I informed my Dr and was taken off the medication. I explained to my Dr the pain & the Dr told me if it was spasms it was a rare side effect. I did read up on the medication once I started developing the pain in back and read that HCTZ could cause muscle spasms. After about 3 - 4 days after not taking HCTZ the pain went away. If it wasn't for the pain I would have continued it because I lost about 9 pds & my BP went down.
The Bloody stools co incide with increased bowel movements 2-3 times a day. The condition tends to come and go but I have not correleated it to the Ibuprophen ( 600MG 4 times/day for a week ) /oxycondonelow dose with 325MG acetaminiphen @4times/day ) I've been taking. I've been taking this for at first lower left side back pain which has now moved more to the left side lower rib cage. The bloody stool issue seems to come and go with 1-2 months seperation of condition last for a week or two then subsides. I n also have a burning sensation and light red blood on wiping myself. First bowel movement is OK 2nd is OK 3rd tends to burn and if a fourth occurs it get pretty sore/senative. Stool is soft and formed
