 4  CHF High BP retains fluid in belly Urinate till it dries me out, sleepy, some chest pain after taking potassium with it. Only last a couple of seconds. Fingers and toes tingling from time to time. Don't want to write a bible but you can contact me and can compare symptoms :-) Only concerned about losing potassium because too low could kill you. And my kidneys & liver are fine now, but lasix can make that worse I believe F 39 7 days

 2  Reduce fluids Inadequate erections.. Poor erections - full but soft and rubbery even with Viagra and a cockring.

 1  Water retention, swollen ankles I was getting horrible chest and lower jaw pain. I thought I was having a heart attack. I called my cardiologist and he checked me out and said it was panic attacks (I am going through alot of stress). I stopped lasik for a week and the chest and jaw tightness went away. So, I am going to assume it was Lasik. Will stop again and see what happens. F 54 30 days

However, I have functioned great until now and now require both valves replaced. It is one reason the need for surgery was not required until now! F 56 10 years

LASIX  (FUROSEMIDE):  Furosemide is used to reduce extra fluid in the body (edema) caused by conditions such as heart failure, liver disease, and kidney disease. This can lessen symptoms such as shortness of breath and swelling in your arms, legs, and abdomen. This drug is also used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Furosemide is a "water pill" (diuretic) that causes you to make more urine. This helps your body get rid of extra water and salt.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
