HCTZ Side Effects

Weakness, diarrhea, and stomach cramps are some of the possible side effects of HCTZ. Side effects of this drug are generally minor and don't require medical attention. However, if you experience any serious HCTZ side effects (such as an unexplained skin rash, seizures, or wheezing), contact your healthcare provider right away.

HCTZ Side Effects: An Overview

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide or HCT). However, not everyone who takes the medicine will experience side effects.
