... certain amount of water per day. Mostly I drink milk with my meals, not much water throgh the day. I don't urinate alot like I thought I would I take 2.5 mg. I have been taking the medicine about 3 weeks now. I do not see my edema getting better.
It is not recommended for edema, I copy pasted info available on this med, which might be of help?
Mykrox tablets (metolazone tablets) have been not been evaluated for the treatment of congestive heart failure or fluid retention due to renal or hepatic disease and the correct dosage for these conditions and other Edema states has not been established.
Since a safe and effective diuretic dose has not been established, MYKROX TABLETS should not be used when diuresis is desired.
Would recommend that you seek medical advice & an alternate. However it is recommended to drink at least 3-4 liters of water everyday even when one has edema.
