Hydrochlorithiazid
I have been taking this medication for about 2 years and I am loosing my hair and it's gotten very thin

domenic
my cvs says qualitest has discontinued making 12.5 hydrochlorothiazide

angie
UTI and lisinopryl 20 mg 2 tabs a day and hydrochlorothiazide 50 mg half once a day
I was put on hydrochlorothiazide 50 mg half pill a day and Lisinipryl 20 mg 2 tab a day back in July of 2013. Soon after I started getting Utl's almost every month or two. I never made a connection between the two until recently. Could these two meds be causing me this infection? Usually they find bacteria in the urine. Before starting these two meds I hadn't had a uti in 18 years. What are your thoughts?

HCTZ
itching
I have been taking HCTZ for several years and itch a lot! Mostly my forehead and head area. I've gone to several dermatologists and tried all kinds of medicine. Nothing works!!! I am going to ask my MD to change the Meds. I am only on a 12.5mg daily.
