I have been on Lisinopril-HCTZ 20-12.5 Tab for about 5 years now. I joined Weight Watchers in July of this past year and have dropped 50 pounds. In doing so the doctor has taken me off of the medication due to my blood pressure being good now. But this past week I gained .2 and when I weighed myself at the gym this morning I was up another .4. My question is how long am I going to retain water before my body will kick in and start releasing the water on its own without being helped by the pill. Because I don't want to go back on the pill just to release the water I am retaining? Because I am trying to loose weight not gain it and this is very fusterating. Thank you for your help.
