I was taking Hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg and it was helping

Customer Question

I was taking Hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg and it was helping keep my BP in normal range. I stopped taking it because I just switched jobs, and don't have insurance yet, and almost instantly, my BP has started to rise back to the 140s (140/80 this morning). Is it possible to obtain a script for this online without making a doctors appointment?

This is Dr. Davod

we are doctors here online to answer medical questions

it is against federal law to give out prescriptions to clients we can't see and can't examine and can't keep medical records on.

140/80 is not a dangerous blood pressure.

you can avoid salt for now and exercise to bring your blood pressure down

and when you get health insurance, you can see a doctor at that point and get back on HCTZ.

let me know if you have other questions.
