More Information

Lozol is a diuretic and it may cause the body to lose too much salt and potassium. So, it is recommended that you eat potassium rich foods to combat the low potassium levels in the body. Maintain caution if you have gout or high uric acid levels, liver disease, diabetes, or lupus erythematosus and kidney disease.
Warnings/Precautions

A severe reaction includes a severe rash, hives, breathing difficulties, or dizziness. If you have a question about whether you are allergic to this medicine or if a certain medicine is a sulfonamide, contact your doctor or pharmacist. Your doctor may have also prescribed a potassium supplement for you. If so, follow the dosing carefully. Do not start taking additional potassium on your own or change your diet to include more potassium without first checking with your doctor. This medicine may cause dizziness. Do not drive, operate machinery, or do anything else that could be dangerous until you know how you react to this medicine. Before you begin taking any new medicine, either prescription or over-the-counter, check with your doctor or pharmacist. For women: it is unknown if this medicine is excreted in breast milk. Do not breast-feed while taking this medicine.
Possible Side Effects

Dehydration may occur during lozol therapy. Hypokalemia (low blood potassium due to elimination of potassium in the urine) is one of the most common adverse effects associated with the thiazide class of diuretics and may cause abnormal cardiac rhythms. The most common symptom associated with hypokalemia is muscle weakness. Patients receiving lozol may need potassium supplements to prevent hypokalemia. Hypomagnesemia (low blood magnesium) also may occur. Other possible side effects include excessive loss of sodium (particularly of concern in elderly patients), increased cholesterol (this effect tends to diminish with continued use), increased uric acid concentrations in the blood, dizziness, lightheadedness, headache, blurred vision, tingling of the extremities, nervousness, impotence, rash, photosensitivity (skin rashes due to sunlight), fatigue, irritability, and agitation.
