You take them according to the directions on your label. It isn't a weight loss pill, it will make you loose a little weight because you'll pee it out but that's it.
Furosemide IS what is commonly referred to as a "water pill". Not likely to cause any significant weight loss unless the weight or the appearance of the weight is due to edema, or fluid build-up. For weightloss information contact a weightloss clinic or visit our website for some useful information. There are many products available to assist with weight loss as supplements (be careful: some supplements increase heart rate and blood pressure) or meal replacements.
