Female,48 and have borderline HTC


I'm losing my mind on 25 mgs of HCTZ. I started this medication one week ago, and am crawling out of my skin. I'm not urinating at night, I just can't sleep. Like I drank 6 cups of coffee. I don't have many other choices for blood pressure medication, due to other health issues. This is beyond ridiculousness.

    I saw the same symptoms on Mystery Diagnosis. It was the patient’s thyroid. Have your wife go to a thyroid specialist.
