Anyone take prescription water pills?

My doctor put me on high blood pressure pill. It's working but my BP is still high. So he put me on a dieutric aka water pill. I took last night and this morning I feel horrible. I feel light headed and dizzy. Has anyone had this? Did it get better?

  • Diuretics leach potassium from your body. Drink lots of water and eat a kiwi every day; they have a lot more potassium than bananas (and more vitamin C than orange juice.
