No

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am , I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but hydrochlorothiazide belongs to the group thiazide diuretics and is considered the first choice medication in treatment of water retention and it is still available in the market under the trade names
HydroDIURIL, Microzide, Esidrix, Oretic.. I hope I answered your question.
