Effectiveness

How Spironolactone And Hydrochlorothiazide Affects PatientsHydrochlorothiazide helps the body get rid of extra water by blocking the kidneys from absorbing too much salt and water. Everyone's individual dose can range from 25-100mg. It is important to be cautious when taking this drug if you have any issues with your kidneys or liver.
How Spironolactone And Hydrochlorothiazide works in the bodyHydrochlorothiazide works by blocking a protein in the kidneys called SLC12A3, which helps the body to reabsorb sodium and chloride. This protein also helps to reabsorb water. When hydrochlorothiazide blocks this protein, it reduces the amount of sodium and chloride that is reabsorbed, and also reduces the amount of water being reabsorbed. This leads to increased urination and helps to lower blood pressure.

Spironolactone And Hydrochlorothiazide for Accumulation of Fluid caused by Cirrhosis of the Liver
The main side effect I've noticed is needing to use the restroom very urgently. This has led to some embarrassing situations, like today at the grocery store. I had been noticing my hair getting thicker since I quit drinking, but now it seems to be thinning out again. If anyone else has experienced this with regards to bladder control and hair loss, please let me know. Some advice would be much appreciated.
