Hello,

Welcome to the site.

Drinking alcohol can increase certain side effects of HCTZ.

Avoid becoming overheated or dehydrated during exercise and in hot weather. Follow your doctor's instructions about the type and amount of liquids you should drink. In some cases, drinking too much liquid can be as unsafe as not drinking enough.

HCTZ can cause you to loose potassium, so yes its a good idea to get some each day.
