I've been taking this drug for about 3 weeks. Couldn't figure out why I felt so light headed and dizzy all the time until I read about the side effects. My feet and ankles are still swollen. This drug is not worth the side effects, especially since it isn't working. Called my doctor today--I want off this drug.

I was given this med for water retention, but it caused severe bouts of gout and brusing, heavy bleeding from light scratches. I'm not very pleased with the outcome!!!

Received a pacemaker and feet and ankles seem to swell more. Told to take 20 mg and potassium daily. You cannot leave home on this drug. And what is it doing to my kidneys?? Some swelling still there.

Even though I took potassium with the drug and followed all instructions, cramps in my legs and thighs was pure hell. They always happened 3-5 Am and were painful beyond belief. I stopped taking the drug and am waiting to see my family Dr.

I went from 20mg once a day to 80mg twice a day for fluid retention. I dropped 10 pounds within the first month. I am very pleased with this drug.

Comment from: Debra S., 55-64 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: August 06

The Lasix 40 mg removed water quickly, very effectively. However, the next day I felt horrible. Late that night I took Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium minerals. Then I soaked my feet in Epsom salts(magnesium sulfate), and for the first time all day, I felt much better. Just read it can cause considerable loss of minerals - it did. I will use Dandelion next time - this drug is dangerous for me!
