I am taking Losartan Potassium and Hydrochlorothiazide 50 mg/12.5 mg pills for high blood pressure. I feel so better better since being on this mediciation. I am very small and this medicine is causing me to lose weight from the water pill in it. I can not afford to lose weight is there anything i can do to prevent the weight lost while taking this medicine.

Dear An_247547,
You will not continue to lose weight from the diuretic component; you weight should stabilize out-it is important that you keep drinking lots of fluids-and that should also help things stabilize-
Good luck,
Mary Jane
