What are the negative effects of taking a diuretic?
if you have to take it along with blood pressure medication to prevent water retention?

Valerie O
I will preface by saying, I am not a doctor. That said, the job of diuretics is to reduce fluid retention in order to keep your blood pressure under control. The negative effects would be losing too much fluid which is why you should only take them while under a doctor's care. If you lose too much fluid you can throw your electrolytes off balance. This could cause problems with your heart and brain which require these electrolytes (Potassium, sodium, and Calcium) to function. It could also cause dehydration. Another potential problem is an increse in blood sugar from using diuretics as well as bouts of Gout after prolonged use. It is important that you do not abuse these diuretics and take them exactly as they are prescribed.

Lots of trips to the loo. Long term risks are outweighed by affects of lowering blood pressure.

i take two diuretics, one spares the Potassium and the other takes it away. I also take Potassium and Magnesium supplements which are prescribed by my cardiologist as well as Calcium supplements. Also take blood pressure medication as well. Helps to watch your sodium intake. Too much sodium which will attract fluids which causes fluid retention esp in ankles and lower legs, a catch 22 problem
