I take Lasix for Congestive Heart Failure. I have heard that there are safer drugs than Lasix. Can?. anyone give me some names so I can ask my Doctor? I take 20 mg twice a day, but it also doesn't seem to help much.
I think it should be the other way around and let your Doctor do his/her job and inform you of the names of the safer drugsfor your condition, that is what you pay him for!
i also take aldactone which seems to work very nicely for the breathing problems associated with chf, i have also been told it is easier on your kidneys by my doctor, but as a drug alone not in combination with lasix i swell up still. i hope this helps
Hi, you could try Torsemide (hope the spelling is correct), but please seek medical advice before you change any med, hope this helps?
