“I'm only 32 years old and I have been diagnosed with severe CHF, they prescribed me furosemide 40 mg twice a day and spirrolactonone in the morning. Yet the furosemide only becomes effective when I must check in with ER to have fluid removed. I'm still coughing constantly, out of breath and nauseous. It's terrible till I get to hospital. They'll get average of 7 liters of fluid and I'll skip out of there singing like I never had a heart problem to begin with.”

“I was in the ER for hypertension, and water in my lungs, 6 months ago they prescribed me Lasix, for my kidney, immediately after that, I had severe edema that lasted 2 months and ended up in the ER again with excruciating pain, there was nothing they can do. My Nephrologist took me off , but this time In the ER they gave me Lasix again through the IV, and sent me home with pills, the very next day , both my legs swelled up and again in excrucitiang pain, I don't think this medicine is helping me with swelling , it is making it worse.. It is going quite the opposite of whats supposed to do.”

“furosemide: This medication works very quickly and effectively. I take Lasix/furosemide daily in the morning. I am retired to release all of the fluid which I retain. I have lost between 4 to 5 lbs of fluid in my body.”
