From this study (5 days ago):
For past month have been getting sudden horrible "charley horse" muscle cramps in both legs in the late afternoon and evenings
From this study (1 week ago):
I only took the Celebrex (1 pill) yesterday in a.m., took the Levothyroxine and HCTZ and took 1/2 of Flexeril (a 5 mg tab - 2.5 mg after cut in half) at bedtime. No Ultracet taken yesterday. Was awakened in middle of night wetting myself. Underwear and PJs had a very strong smell of ammonia, which is not usual for me. Concerned about the odor.
Em on Jun, 23, 2014:
HCTZ is a diuretic and should be taken in the morning.
You need to drink more water or you will continue to have
The odor of ammonia in your urine. The urine is concentrating in your bladder during the day and then when the HCTZ kicks in, you're urine is concentrated. You probably wet the bed because you were in very deep sleep and/or dreaming. This with the diuretic is a bad combination. To be safe ask your physician or pharmacist about the best time to take the HCTZ and tell your doctor about the odor of ammonia in your urine. I am not a primary care provider but have been a nurse for 27 years and have an MS degree so my advice and information are probably accurate but are not to be considered MEDICAL ADVICE. This information is only provided to assist you in discussing your medication and symptom, with a primary care provider (MD,DO, PA, FNP, NP. CNS...) and your pharmacist.
