Are high blood pressure pills supposed to make you urinate?
Recently had a mild stroke&was also diagnosed with high blood pressure,but it seems like the things you enjoy eating are the things you're not supposed to have and now I am trying my best to eat healthier&drink more water UGH!

No and just eat sensibly. Water is good for everyone. Adam's ale.

HCTZ, which is a drug most often given for high blood pressure, definitely makes you urinate more. I know what you mean about the diet and water. I hate that part too, but it's really important to take care of it now so you don't have to have multiple medications down the road.

If you drink more water you will urinate more, what goes in must come out. It's like Archie Bunker once said, beer you can only rent it. Try squeezing some fresh lemon in your water.

Did your doctor give you a diuretic, (water pill) it might be a separate pill or in your blood pressure medication.

There are plenty of foods you can eat, try to stay away from processed foods, the closer to their natural state the better.

Maybe it's the salt your missing, I can relate to that. Experiment with different spices or combinations of spices, try Mrs. Dash, they have a lot of different combinations already mixed for you.

I hope this helps, feel better soon.

Hypertension is sustained elevation of resting systolic BP (≥ 140 mm Hg), diastolic BP (≥ 90 mm Hg), or both. Hypertension with no known cause (primary; formerly, essential hypertension) is most common; hypertension with an identified cause (secondary hypertension) is usually due to a renal disorder. Usually, no symptoms develop unless hypertension is severe or long-standing. Diagnosis is by sphygmomanometry. Tests may be done to determine cause, assess damage, and identify other cardiovascular risk factors. Treatment involves lifestyle changes and drugs, including diuretics, β-blockers, ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers, and Ca channel blockers.(Merck)
Diuretics are also administered along with other hypertensive drugs to reduce hypertension. Hypertensive patients are also advised to reduce sodium in the diet. Sodium helps the body to retain water in the body. Hence blood pressure pills make you urinate more.
Eat a low-cholesterol, low-fat diet. This kind of diet includes cottage cheese, fat-free milk, fish (not canned in oil), vegetables, poultry, egg whites, and polyunsaturated oils and margarines (corn, safflower, canola, and soybean oils). Avoid foods with excess fat in them such as meat (especially liver and fatty meat), egg yolks, whole milk, cream, butter, shortening, lard, pastries, cakes, cookies, gravy, peanut butter, chocolate, olives, potato chips, coconut, cheese (other than cottage cheese), coconut oil, palm oil, and fried foods.
Please see the web pages for more details on Hypertension.

Well girlfriend, there is a time in all of our lives that we need to start to be more healthy. Some tips: There are a lot of good low fat, sugar free, and low sodium foods available. I know, I utilize them and count calories and drink lots of water. My trick is to get a diet pepsi/coke and save the cup with the lid and the straw. I rinse it out fill it with ice cubes and water and sip on it all day. The cup is 24 oz, so it is easy to fill it twice. Not so much pain that way. If you change your lifestyle, and it can be done. You may find that you will like the substitute sugars better, they are sweeter. There are many products available so you won't feel deprived. Also yes, to the BP pills causing you to urinate more, this helps in lowering the blood pressure by riding your body of excess fluids. Good Luck to you.

If you are taking a diuretic for your high blood pressure, that can make you urinate more. And if you are drinking more water, ... well, that also can make you urinate more.

Personally, I find a nice cup of tea also adds to the effect.

Keep at it. It is hardest at first. But you do get used to the diet eventually.

Yes, high blood pressure pills are usually a diuretic which means you will urinate more to keep the blood pressure down. The common name for the diuretic is Hydrochlorothiazide and is used to treat the accumilation of excess edema commonly known as water retention.

Depends on the class of high blood pressure pills.
One of the classes known as diuretics can make u urinate more

sometiems high blood pressure pills will have potassium in them which can reduce blood pressure but potassium is a diuretic and it will make you pee like crazy. When I was juicing vegetables espeicaly celery I would be a lot. Later I found out htat celery has a lot of potassium and is a diuretic. You might also needs some sodium. I'm not doctor so don't take this to heart but sodium retains water. If you are drinking a lot of water but don't have any sodium in your body then it will just come out as quickly as it went in. I get dehydrated a lot so I have to eat sodium. I use celtic sea salt in some water and drink it. You could try some gatorade. But talk to your doc.

There are actually some diuretics (water pills) that also work well with High Blood Pressure.

Just keep taking care of yourself and pay attention to your doctor and other healthcare staff.
