I'm on bendro....... too. Changed to it when ankles were forever swelling on amlodipine. I try to drink to 8 glasses of water a day and don't find any difference in my amount of toilet stops. I have 2 monthly checks with doc on BP and he hasn't said he notices anything untoward either.
Every day I look at my own worst enemy in the mirror. Some day we will be friends. My ticker is lbs not kilos

Actually drinking 8-10 cups a day, helps reduce fluid retention in the body. Should not be a problem with your BP meds.

WELCOME dear. I'd suggest you consult your GP. Wish you good luck.

I doubt it. Drinking water does not cause fluid retention. As always double check with your MD.

I take HCTZ for fluid. and I drink a lot of water. Seems to even out to me, If my ankles are not swollen, know I'm OK. Maybe you should ask your primary care MD. Lois

I have been taking bendroflumethiazide for many years for my HBP and have now started drinking eight cups of water a day as recommended. Is there a conflict here, with the pill being a diuretic, can somebody help ?
