Lasix is not potassium sparing. Spironolactone is a potassium sparing diuretic.

Lasix is a potassium sparring diuretic I dont know why you would say it is not

Because Lasix can actually cause hypokalemia.

Metabolic side effects including hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, and an increase in serum uric acid, have been relatively common especially with higher doses.
