No, furosemide is a diuretic or "water pill" so any weight you lose will be water weight BUT when you lose the water weight, it depletes the bodies electrolytes (potassium in particular) and those electrolytes can affect how your heart functions. Unless this is specifically prescribed for you, you should not use it. It could become life threatening. Low potassium can stop your heart from functioning correctly.
