    Default Hydroclorothiazide

    I was reading today that this "water pill" can be linked to causing Lupus flares. Has anyone heard this? I'm also highly allergic to Sulfa and supposedly there can be a cross reaction. Interesting...any experiences?

    Wow, I took Hydrochlorathiazide for years...not on it now, but never had any problems with it....and I only recently, in the last 2 years, found out I'm highly allergic to sulfa drugs.

    While I was on HCTZ, I never noticed it having any effect on my flares...but then I wasn't really tuned in to looking for a pattern.

    Interesting.........

    Are you on it?

    I have never taken taken that one...it is always interesting to hear one can take something and another lupie ends up in a flare...everyone reacts differently...

    I was just taken off of it back in January. I have kidney issues due to lupus and my doctor thought that somehow it was making the problem worse. I did improve a little after I stopped taking it. That is about as much as I know. I could ask for better details from the doc if you would like . . .
