for about 3 months. Now I am up to 160 mg a day, and it isn't working. I have gained back all of the weight I lost the first three months I was on Furosemide, over 80 pounds, all fluid. I can hardly move, my back and legs are so weak.
Are you taking 160mg of hydrochlorothiazide? That is quite a high dose and if you are not getting a good response please see your doctor as soon as possible. Perhaps also ask your doctor why they decided to change you from furosemide to hydrochlorothiazide? There may be a valid reason but if there isn't then perhaps they can put you back on furosemide.
