I have been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. This of course causes retention of fluids in my body when I ingest excessive sodium. My cardiologist originally prescribed Lasix (furosemide) for control of this problem. In the meantime, as the V.A. is accustomed to often doing, their "system" changed my therapy to spironolactone plus furosemide. I have just read on one web page that cautions against using these two together. As a matter of fact it said in my language, "don't do it"! Who's wrong here? or better, who's right? Or am I just missing something here?
