Comments from related studies:
From this study (11 months ago):
I started on chlorthalidone is 2011 after realizing HCTZ had caused me to become diabetic and in general not very effective in lowering my BP. I initially had started out with Hyzaar 100-25. So I went on Cozaar(generic) 100 mg and chlorthalidone 25 mg. After having a year of K+ <3.1,decided to abruptly stop chlorthalidone. Didn't think would rebound,as this is a diuretic. Rebounding started day 4-5. I am going to see if by day 10 the rebound effect stops. If it doesn't I will restart 12.5 and then wean of after a week. I am type 2 DM and my fasting blood sugars have dropped 30 mg/dl. Cozaar is totally ineffective. I also have had terrible knee pain since being Losartin, HCTZ/or chlorthalidone.
