... doctor has told me to discontinue the HCTz because it is hard on my kidney function, but 10 days in to stopping my edema is really bad (especially my face) and I feel awful. Has anyone successfully weened off HCTz after such a long use?
You were put on it for a reason, the same as I was. My dr got the same bright idea. 5 days in I felt like you, had gained 8 pounds and couldn't breathe. I started back on it and told my dr it wasn't the best idea she ever had. These symptoms ar NOT. Withdrawal. They are the reason we started on it.
