View Full Version : Im in a lasix pickle!

06-10-2011, 03:09 AM
Anybody have any advice or experience in this Frusemide dilemma? I really want off this drug! because I hate having to rely on those little white pills every morning to get rid of excess fluid and wait the couple of hours to pee it out! My kidney Specialist says that if I go off them my body will gradually work normally again, and I wont any longer rely on frusemide. Ive tried it before and I HATE the quick kilos you chuck on just by not taking a little white pill (because my body usually depends on lasix). Has anybody been through this that can give any info or tips? I havent been on Frusemide for years and years, I was off them and on them, and have now been on them for the last 7 months. 7 months is awhile yes, but not a MASSIVE amount of time so hopefully it doesnt take too long for my body to adjust!

Have you tried taking the Lasix every other day for a week or so, to give your body a little help with the adjustment? Then maybe go to every 3rd day for another week or so? If they are scored, you could try taking half? That's how we wean ourselves off meds at our house, and my hubby is a pharmacist.
