General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

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.
