  • 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.

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • Recently, I was taken off my atenolol and put on Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) 25mg for my high blood pressure. I was also put on Simvastatin for my cholesterol. I was put on the HCTZ, then the Simvastatin about 2-3 weeks later. I have been on them about 3 months. I have notice a tremendous weight gain in that time. I have also noticed increased muscle spasms, lack of energy, back pain and swelling in both hands and feet. Just recently I started having episodes of dizziness that seemed to last an entire day, off and on. I recently did some research on HCTZ, and I believe these symptoms are all related to HCTZ and the combination of the HCTZ and Symvastatin as well.
