- Hydrochlorothiazide and frontal fibrosing alopecia
I took Hydrochlorothiazide for almost a year to prevent kidney stone formation. Ten months later, I went to see a Dermatologist because I was having problems with my skin. I had lost all of my eyebrow hair and most of the hair around my facial hairline and my hair was thinning on the rest of my scalp. I was diagnosed with Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia and was informed that Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) can cause this disorder, which is a variant of lichen planopilaris. This disorder causes permanent hair loss due to scarring of the hair follicles all around my facial hairline. The hair I have lost will never grow back. I was advised to stop taking HCTZ.
- Hydrochlorothiazide made me pour sweat
Hydroclorothiazide made me absolutely pour sweat for two years. My doctors could not find out what was causing the problem. It took little exertion for me to start dripping sweat. My hair would be absolutely soaked...especially in the summer, but if I was cleaning house in the winter also. I finally did my own research and proposed to my doctor that HCTZ was the problem. He did not agree with me, but agreed to let me go off of it for a short time. The profuse sweating stopped almost immediately.
- Excessive menstrual cycle bleeding??? here's a possible answer! (1 response)
I take Hydrochlorothiazide 25mg and Atenolol 50mg daily for high blood pressure. I have had every exam known to man and all blood work and test results come back clear with no indications of a reason as to why my pressure is high. Needless to say, I take the meds and my blood pressure is controlled. I went to the dentist yesterday to have a filling replaced, the doctor gave me a novocaine injection, did the work and I was out of there happy as a pig in mud. The doctor did not ask if I was on my menstrual cycle and today I realize why he should have. I have to use the restroom every 15 minutes MAXIMUM, to change my sanitary napkin and release the blood that has accumulated in my vaginal canal. Wearing a tampon is not even an option! There is no pain however it is so gross. I once took 2 excedrin while on my cycle and had the mini version of what is happening now. Needless to say, the combination of hydrochlorothiazide and novocaine should not be mixed especially during your menstrual cycle.
