Diabetes: Urozide (Hydrochlorothiazide) may make it more difficult for people with diabetes to control their blood sugar. If you have diabetes, discuss with your doctor how Urozide (Hydrochlorothiazide) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Urozide (Hydrochlorothiazide), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Fluid and electrolyte balance: The levels of electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, and chloride can be reduced with Urozide (Hydrochlorothiazide). Your doctor will monitor your electrolyte levels with blood tests while you are taking Urozide (Hydrochlorothiazide). Warning signs or symptoms of fluid and electrolyte imbalance include:

  • Low Blood Pressure
  • muscle pains or cramps
  • muscular fatigue
  • nausea and vomiting
  • racing heartbeat

  • seizures
  • thirst
  • unusual tiredness

If you experience any of these symptoms, contact your doctor. To prevent low potassium levels, eat foods that are high in potassium (e.g., bananas, dried figs, dates, prunes, nuts). If your potassium level is low, your doctor may suggest a potassium supplement.

If you have glaucoma, discuss with your doctor how Urozide (Hydrochlorothiazide) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Urozide (Hydrochlorothiazide), and whether any special monitoring is needed.
