Read the label: B"sd as far as meds thiazide diuretics decrease urine and increase blood calcium. exforge hct (amlodipine and hydrochlorothiazide and valsartan) (amlodipine valsartan hydrochlorothiazide tablets) - has thiazide, plain exforge (amlodipine valsartan tablets) does not cause it to my knowledge. In any case, HCT causes mild hypercalcemia - should not bring on confusion etc unless other issues with low sodium etc. glad to discuss details and diabetes
