Gday fellow Lupus buddies, seeing that I am now onto a smaller dose of steroids my Frusemide (water pills) are no longer needed, my doctor told me that my body had adjusted to urinating with water pills, and that I will hold abit of fluid in my body once I stop taking Frusemide due to that reason, however my doctor said my body will re-adjust in about 12-16 days off of the Frusemide, and that I will urinate all that excess fluid out of my body.

Does anyone have any experience with coming off fluid tablets?

Cheers people. =]

my wife was on a different type of pill for a while.
she was back to normal in only a couple of days.

it takes a little time for the drug to be totally removed from your system.

then nature can work as it was intended. as long as your bladder isnt too lazy.
