Loop diuretics, thiazide
diuretics, beta-blockers, ARBs, and alpha-blockers were not associated with the risk of NOF development in elderly hypertensive patients.
treatment of systemic hypertension: effects on serum magnesium and ventricular ectopic activity.
Resistant hypertension--defined as inadequate blood pressure (BP) control despite a triple regimen of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor or angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB), calcium channel blocker (CCB), and thiazide

In sum, this case nicely illustrates that if a patient appears as if they are taking a thiazide

More than two-thirds of older adults have high blood pressure in the United States and thiazide
diuretics are often recommended as the initial medication for these hypertensive patients.
Hypercalciuria was also found in our patient and thiazide
treatment was started.
Use of a thiazide
diuretic might warrant decreasing the lithium dose by as much as 50% to prevent toxicity
7] In these patients, ACE-I may be used alone, but are much more effective when combined with thiazide
type diuretic or other anti-hypertensive drugs.
The results found in the study showed that the population assisted at that locality consist mostly users of ACEI and thiazide
One recently updated analysis reported that the effect on falls in the elderly was strongest in the first 3 weeks of a thiazide
