Overall: The Cardiologist prescribed it for my daugther. She was on it for about a year, it help a lot with the water retention. No we only use it as needed.By
Overall: This is a difficult drug to take on days when I can't be sure where the next bathroom is.By
Overall: If you have low Potassium (don't ya just love those horse pills, I take 2x a day).. I've found a product in the local grocery store called "No Salt" its a sodium-free salt alternative that's pretty much Potassium Chloride. Many may be more familiar with the name "salt peter". So this is a way to help remove Sodium from your diet and add a little Potassium. It doesn't taste too bad & definitely helps the trasnition away from salt!By
Overall: I've taken take 80 mg lasix in am for a few years & used to take an additional 80 M-W-F afternoon.. glad I stopped that because I understand "seeing the world ouside a bathroom". I 100% recommend accupuncture for bladder incontinence - I have friends w/MS that have GREAT improvement after just a few treatments. It also worked for another friend that has had 4 kids. They were able to get off prescription medication for incontinence. It's WONDERFUL to be able to laugh, sneeze and cough again without fear! I would make sure if you go to someone thats accredited and many insurance programs cover Accupuncture now like Physical Therapy.By
Overall: I have MS, and also, now, CHF. My cardio doc suggested lasix, but, with MS, I have bladder incontinence anyway, so I don't think I would ever see see the world outside my bathroom. Also, I have chronic constipation, which I think the laxix would make worse. I'm going to a dietician and reducing salt and calories. In three weeks - lost 9 lbs. Yea! But, should I take lasix too?By
Overall: I STILL TAKE 40MG OF LASIX EVERY MORNING AND I HAVE BLADDER INCONTINENCE STILL. AT LEAST THE LASIX WORKS WELL FOR ME AND I NEED TO BE ON IT THE REST OF MY LIFE.By
