Has anyone had experience with being taken off a water pill because of incontinence? I find that my blood pressure in rising and the substitute is not working as well.

I was on Diovan for my blood pressure before surgey. My pressure was only slightly high so I took myself off of it. The other day I took a dose because work has been gettin to me a little. I leaked like crazy the next day. So I quit taking it agian. I will just let the work crap go and not worry about it.

Just my opinion....but do what is best for you.

..... makes the sphincter relax, and can make incontinence worse.)

My doctor just put me on a water pill for hypertension; he doesn't think it will affect my incontinence much. I use one pad a day now. Will be interesting to see...
