Constipation from Hydrochlorothiazide
| C. D. Peterson
I have been taking hydrochlorothiazide for over a year, due to my high blood pressure.. I had not been bothered by frequent consitipation until I began the drug. Now I have near emergency bowel blockage fairly often, due, I suppose, to the lack of fluid in my stools. I take Metamucil and Miralax to counteract the constipation, but when I fail to do this, I routinely emit stools that totally block the commode. I guess this is better than having a stroke from excessive blood pressure--but just barely better.
