    Just started taking for fluid retention. The swelling has gone down to where I can actually see my ankles again.

    I have found this drug to be very effective in reducing fluid retention.

    I have been on Demidex for a few months now. Was on it for 6 months (a year ago). I have found it to be effective when Lasix started to not work. The previous time I experienced the side effect of muscle cramps, which I have not experienced this time.

    Used for several years with very satisfactory results but n Dec 09 became very dehydrated with vomiting (dry heaves)& diarhea for several hours. Adm to hospital ER then to hospital. Did not receive Demadex while in the hospital and have not used since coming home. Reduced edema in legs - less swelling.

    I have been on Demadex since 2003 when a sudden water retention occured. Same condition my maternal grandmother had at the same age.Tried the generic torsemide which did not work.Excellent results with Demadex. Be sure to have a restroom available because it works within a half hour. I have had no side effects but I do eat a banana/day for potasium depletion and have regular blood tests. Recommend highly.

    Since I have been taking this medication, I am thirsty alot and I have pain in both nipples. Is that a side effect of this medication?

    Comment from: precious, 45-54 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: February 01

    After 3 days started violently throwing up. Hospitalized for 4 days. Released from hospital thought it perhaps it wasn't the drug and because I gained 11 lbs. in 6 days started taking drug again. Same thing happened. The drug worked I just can't tolerated it.

    No improvement over several days, depleted potassium levels causing lack of urination exacerbating the problem and fatigue.
