Dehydration Caused by a Medicine
Many prescription and nonprescription medicines can cause dehydration. A few examples are:
- Blood pressure medicines.
If you think that your dehydration is caused by a medicine:
- Call the doctor who prescribed the medicine to find out if you should stop taking it or take a different one. An appointment may not be necessary.
- If you are taking a nonprescription medicine, stop taking it. Call your doctor if you feel you need to continue taking the medicine.
